Skip to comments.Boycott of FOX
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?
I joined the boycott 3 months ago.
I’m done with Teevee. Let them all go to hell.
I am with you all the way my friend...i hope FOX goes off the air...hate em now...
Count me in. I have been very unhappy with them lately!
It would be easy. Nearly every show on FNC is unwatchable these days. ....for quite a while, in fact.
Ha, I’ve been on a TV news “boycott” since the 2004 election.
I started last week.
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
I think we are already boycotting all MSN, including FOX!
Noob! I quit watching tv news 3 years ago. ;o)
Send this to FOX. I am DONE until the hatchet job on Sarah Palin stops being tabloid journalism in place of news. Maybe longer.
Who will know if I don’t tune in?
Sorry we can't help.
too late.........I wrote them off months ago
only if this action guarantees that Shep Smith be ‘promoted’ to replace Mario Lopez’s gig searching for pet talent
I’ve been boycotting for about two years.
Faux is a joke other than Neil Cavuto.
Already started! I am in!
GO TO EVERY RIGHTWING BLOG AND TELL THEM TO TURN OFF FOX.
started here 2 weeks ago, no end in sight.
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.
tee hee, that you Shep?
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.
IN...for awhile now
and I don’t miss it
I hope she sues them for defamation.
Be sure when you tell O’Reilly anything to keep it pithy.
I began my boycott of Fox election night. They are locked out of my Dish.
I boycotted Fox following the third debate.
I’m in, veritas. Deal.
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.
I’m in. I usually watch Fox News from 3-10 pm. I’ll tune out the next few days.
Count ME in too!
I’m absolutely in. And im in for a good long while. I’ve 90% decided to disconnect my cable TV. Except for Turner Classic Movies and history and travel channel id never miss it.
I’ve been a part of that boycott for going on two years now.
I boycott all TV news. It’s all spoon feed propaganda to make the rats look good.
I am going to do that and raise you one cable contract cancelled.
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.
“What a bunch of turncoats you are. Dont like what you hear, lets boycott. Give me a break. You boycott your family members when they dont agree with you or say something you dont want to hear? Hey, dont watch Fox if you dont like it, but tossing out boycott is petty”
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.
