Skip to comments.Boycott of FOX

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 turned the tv news off Tuesday night and haven’t turned it back on. Nor do I intend to. I can get all the news fit to read from FR and other internet news sources.
Fox is dead to me. (All the others already were.)
I've been very disappointed in Special Edition with Brit Hume recently.
Neil Cavutto what's up with you brother?
Carl Cameron is a dead man walking.
Dan, Fox got its reputation and huge rating because they used to report from the heartland....on issues normal, real, hard working, and patriotic American cared about.
Once they go them hooked, they dumped them.
They moved back towards a traditional New York, DC, mindset. They only report for their peers in NY now.
Rush has been blasting the McCain folks for trashing Sarah today...he played Carl’s juvenile clips with Bill, too.
Seriously, I haven't watched any sort of network news in probably more than 10 years. They make me scream at my tv and it scares the children.
Of all of them, Greta has been the best — fair, honest and straight down the middle. She even got mad last night (or so I read) about Karl’s gossip report. I’m done with them as well. Karl Cameron ruined it for me, plus the all stars on Brit’s panel are so inside the beltway stupid now they are unwatchable.
You bet! I’ll boycott them. Everybody needs to send an email to FOX telling them how DISgusted we are about the Palin story because that’s actually what they pay attention to.
I didn’t see Greta last night, but it’s my understanding she defended Sarah last night. I am highly disappointed in every one else.
I shouldn’t be surprised. I boycotted Fox for months after the primaries since they tore down real conservative candidates and built up the rinos. I should have known they’d be back to their old tricks. How can we keep Fox News from messing up the next Republican primary and tearing down every decent candidate? I know many conservatives whose only source of news is Fox, and they simply regurgitate their talking points. During the primary debates, these people would simply parrot what the commentators or “undecided” voters in Frank Luntz’s “studies”. How do we counter the rinos and get out the pure, unfiltered conservative message? I don’t want our future nominees chosen by the media.
You know what,,, i think you’re right.
Fox who? I think FR buying their own network would hurt all of them more. I don’t know how it could be done but I would really rather have a conservative news than trying to fix another.
You BETCHA I’m gonna join ya!
I will still go to FOX before I go anywhere else for news. That said, I have avoided them lately and can certainly do so for another week. They need to be hurt.
What is "Fox"?
No more Sunday shows, either. I'm stickin' to FreeRepublic & talk radio.
Good-bye O'Reilly, Hannity & Colmes, etc.
Just sent my pithy comment to O’reilly
I watch the Weather Channel often - to actually get the weather - but they are very liberal and promote “climate change” as part of their agenda. Be warned.
Will be there with you however started at about 9 today.
Same here . Perhaps someone could be assigned to watch and report back how much we as missed . I am already boycotting their sponsors . No erection disjunction malfunction comments will be tolerated by the mods . You have been warned .
Less TV, more dvds
