Boycott of FOX
Vanity | 11-06-08 | Veritas 2002

Posted on 11/06/2008 10:07:54 AM PST by veritas2002

I propose that we punish the FOX Network for its hatchet job on Sarah Palin.

For one week beginning at 3:00 PM today no one tunes them in. We will demonstrate the power of conservatives when their ratings plummet dramatically.

Will you join me?

It would be easy. Nearly every show on FNC is unwatchable these days. ....for quite a while, in fact.

What a bunch of turncoats you are. Don’t like what you hear, let’s boycott. Give me a break. You boycott your family members when they don’t agree with you or say something you don’t want to hear? Hey, don’t watch Fox if you don’t like it, but tossing out boycott is petty

YES.

Send this to FOX. I am DONE until the hatchet job on Sarah Palin stops being tabloid journalism in place of news. Maybe longer.

We don't watch any of the entertainment "news" stations, and haven't for ages.

Sorry we can't help.

I turned them off long ago...but I will be curious to see if we can lower their Nielsen ratings.

GO TO EVERY RIGHTWING BLOG AND TELL THEM TO TURN OFF FOX.

Start with:

Oreilly@foxnews.com

Tell him he’s no better than the “smear merchants” and “bombthrowers” he holds in such contempt. Allowing Carl Cameron to spew unmitigated hearsay and garbage without one shred of supporting evidence or fact makes O’Reilly just as bad as the supermarket tabloids.

Maybe it won’t make any difference, but at least it’s theraputic to hit that smug condescending bastard where he’s most vulnerable - square in his gigantic ego!

The only good one on there is Hannity and I usually don’t watch him anyway, not home at that time, or busy. Though Greta was OK for a while there too.

I would only turn on a news channel at this point if there were some huge story where one would need the news station’s infrastructure to find out what was going on, whether a natural disaster, terror or international story.

I haven’t watched FOX since I got disillusioned over the amnesty push by both Bush and McCain.

Life without FOX is good.

I joined starting today. Don’t forget to take the recordings off the TIVO or DVR. Their ratings can read that somehow.

What’s the purpose behind these attacks on Sarah Palin from Fox News correspondent Carl Cameron?

It’s not a secret that Rupert Murdoch donated to Hilary Clinton’s campaign.

It’s not a secret that 81% of Fox News reporters and employees donate money to the Democratic party - that’s a crazy high number for an allegedly conservative TV channel.

It’s no secret to the gay community that Shepard Smith is “one” of them.

It’s no secret that Fox News has really hot chicks and I’m tuning in just to look at them!

We’re on our own as conservatives and we need to be prepared for the next couple of years.

No problem! I don't receive FOX News via my roof antenna and have no intention of subscribing to cable or satellite service. NO FOX News for me!

I get all of my news from Conservative websites (like here on FR) and 1. Rush, 2. Levin, 3. Hannity 4. some Boortz 4. and some Laura Ingraham.

Boycott already long under way here.

I’ll step them up to Double Secret Boycott, because my disddain for Fox reached the tipping point around the time of the hiring of Jerry Rivers, and the trashing of the Swift Boat Vets by East Coast Bill O’Ego.

FNC throws its base under the bus, just like Bush did. We’ll see if it works better for them than it did for the RINOs.

Get local with this. There are Fox and other network affiliates in most cities. Let them know.

I disconnected my satelite 2 years ago over this. Let the cable co’s etc know why if you do the same.

We bought Fox News a dress, picked them up in a limo and pinned the corsage on them. Now that they are at the dance they don’t even know us.

FOX now SUX bigtime! :-(

Why can’t we have something like a 20min daily FreeRepublic video newscast that we can download and watch?

Even if it is mainly a rewrite of stuff from FOX it would at least be by our own guys and could poke fun when fun poking is due.

A permanent daily download link could be put on the front page.

And you? You’re happy with letting the media pick your candidates?

Looks like that ‘turncoat’ fits you well.

Not a problem. TV is literally a wast of time. I like reading hence FR etc. It’s quieter, no commercials. The MSM TV coverage? Fail.
