Ad on FoxNews / Fox and Friends: Who was it?
FoxNews | 09/23/2005 | Landis

Posted on 09/23/2005 8:07:02 AM PDT by Lunar

Did anyone else see the ad on Fox and Friends this morning? I was dumb founded as I sat with mouth open, trying to get my head around the lies that these poor women were spewing. I was sure I saw that the groups url was FamiliesForPeace.com, but I can not find them there or anywhere even similar to that url.. Was anyone watching that was un-effected enough to have gotten the url right?

Thanks in advance, Landis Reed.

I saw it and couldn't believe FOX would broadcast that.It was from the "Gold Star Mothers for Peace org".

It's been on many times. Seems like it's just a ploy to make money, as FamiliesForPeace.org takes you to a pop-up ad laden advertising site.

Seems like it's a ploy to make money. FamiliesForPeace.org is an advertising site that is chock full of pop-up ads.

familiesforpeace.com got me right to their webpage. Looks like a Fenton Communications/George Soros creation.

I saw that ad yesterday on FOX, and it infuriated me as well--
they really *are* fair and balanced to show that!

Can the President sue for slander/libel/whatever??
Same old rhetoric, word for word, yada, yada, yada.

Here's the website:

Saw the ad yesterday on FOX, while we had it on at work.

It looked like the soul-sisters of Cindy She-HAG spewing more lies again.

Regular Fox viewers won't be swayed. Fox, like any other broadcast organization, will accept money from whoever wants to flush it down the toilet.

"Propaganda site probably funded by Soros."

I'm fascinated by the Soros phenomenon. The Left is always complaining about the wealthy running the country. But here we have what appears to be an overwrought billionaire trying to run American foreign policy.

I wonder if these Dim Bulbs realize that they are supporting the very people that want to kill all of us?

I saw it and was going to email Fox that the troops in Iraq watch Fox and I felt they should put a disclaimer on it if they are going to play it. An ad opposing it needs to be produced ASAP and start running. It was a very shrill obnoxious ad. Were these people in the ad really dead soldiers families or just actors? It was disgusting anyway and it pi--ed me off!

Nimrods like Kerry and Kennedy dream of running the country. Only they know what's good for us peasants.

Dear FoxNews,
I am writing to let you know I was very put off by the Ad you ran this morning from FamiliesForPeace! Having the faces of those poor women spewing the Lefts Lies in what seemed, directly "in my face" was uncomfortable and unwanted, now and in the future.
Please discontinue the playing of such slanderous propaganda towards My President and Country!


Respectfully,

God Bless President Bush.

So, you are ok with anti-war/anti-American propaganda broadcasted to all conservatives during a time of war.

Just what do you think is the purpose? It is to reach as many people as possible and try and convert conservatives to their point of view.

And, we just sit back and say "what a waste of money - nobody will buy that".

Typical GOP cop-out, do nothing attitude that we chastise the GOP senators for practicing.

I'm not Ok with it and have written to FOX. If they support anti-war efforts - they lose me as a viewer. I am looking for those supporting our efforts and our troops - not condoning the enemy at work.

I suggest a major boycott of Fox. They are acting just like CNN/ABC/NBC/CBS - so just why am I to watch?

I am astounded, this is viewed by our troops.

Another thing - these people supposedly lost loved ones. Just why would they choose to say their loved ones died for nothing of value? Why would they care what others do - their loved one is gone?

They are anti-war/anti-Bush/anti-American people or actors.

I don't believe they sincerely care about those dead loved ones. They are a travesty.

Bush's numbers are going to rebound as the left overreacts and spews more and more hatred. Americans are a tough judge but they demand fair play.
