Racism at Fox

Written by Christianity and the Confusion on July 9th, 2008

From MO

Over 428,000 people have signed a petition telling FOX to stop their racist and hate-filled smears against Barack Obama. If we hit half-a-million signatures, we can draw media attention and put pressure on FOX's advertisers.

Plus, Robert Greenwald's Brave New Films released a video this morning documenting FOX's ongoing smears against Michelle Obama. Please check out the video, and then sign the petition calling on FOX to stop peddling racism—and then tell your friends.  Just click here:

FOX is shameless: in the last several weeks alone, they've “confused” Obama's name with Osama's, referred to Michelle as “Obama's Baby Mama,” and called an affectionate fist bump by Barack and Michelle a “terrorist fist jab.”

Our partners at ColorOfChange.org will hold a major event next week to deliver boxes and boxes of petition signatures to FOX's headquarters. If we can deliver half-a-million signatures, other media outlets will have a powerful story to report—and FOX's advertisers will get the hint that it's not a good idea to associate their products with FOX's hate-speech.

Thanks for helping to fight the right-wing smears.

P.S. Congressman Robert Wexler (D-FL) has a new book out, and we thought you might be interested. The Nation called Wexler the country's “Most Valuable Congressman,” and he's stood with MoveOn on numerous causes, from ending the war to stopping warrantless wiretapping in FISA. Now he's written “Fire Breathing Liberal,” a fascinating account of life as an outspoken progressive in the House of Representatives. Says Comedian Stephen Colbert, “I enjoyed Congressman Wexler's book even more than I enjoy cocaine and prostitutes.” You can check it out here:

    I'm not sure how I'm going to vote, but race will not be a factor. I'm not sure if that was a fair video but if it is I am disappointed. As a Christian I am going to be praying and voting how God leads me.

    I watched the CLIP because I am a FAN and one whom watches FOX NEWS for one reason. THEY ARE honest about what they do when it comes to being DISCERNING of what people they cover are actually saying and not what they WISH THEY HAD of said. In other words they hear what is being said by someone and not trying to make it something it is not. THEY point out the truth of what was being said IN CASE there are people out there that DO NOT HAVE GOOD EARS! to HEAR the TRUTH of what is within the heart of the one SPEAKING . people nreed to start listening to what words are being said and why they are being said by a person.. EXAMPLE;; In this morning paper a remark that Mr Barach Obama's TOUR ALL over the WORLD LEADERS was not a POLITICAL PLOY TO WIN their ADMIRATION even if IT was only for SHOW BY some of those LEADERS because of PROTICOL and PLAIN DECENCY and TREATING someone with RESPECT IN PUBLIC PLACES as all POLITICAL HEADS OF STATE MUST be able to do. TO PRETEND THAT his going from one country to another for support ??? was more about POLITICS and winning the WHITE HOUSE then ACTUALLY DISCUSSING the REALITY of THE TRUTH of what we need for OUR COMMANDER IN CHIEF FOR the next FOUR TO EIGHT YEARS.. TO KEEP our RIGHTS OF FREEDOM to WORSHIP < SPEAK and A FREE PRESS both NEWS CASTERS RIGHT TO TELL what is a TRUTH instead of covering it up as something it is not and never was meant to be UNDERSTOOD any other way. TO many want to hear LIES rather then hear truth especially when it comes to what they DISAGREE with LIKE A war that we better not retreat from. TO much TOLERANCE without a balanced INTOLERANCE we end up with NO LAW and NO GUIDELINES at all for a FREE COUNTRY and a FREE people ... IT is CALLED POLITICALLY CORRECT when ALL TOLERANT OF ALL THINGS and all PEOPLE and all CIRCUMSTANCES HAVING NO right wrong or distinguishing between truth and lies Good and bad LOVE and HATE is a downfall of all FREE people everywhere. I could say alot more about what is posted here in this subjectof Racism MY VOTE will neither be because of THE COLOR OF ANYONES skin. it definitly will be as it always has been whom has HIGH STANDARDS of MORAL CHARACHTER that also UNDERSTAND that NOT ALL AND NONE of us are ANYTHING BUT IMPERFECT people THAT ARE still trying to GET IT RIGHT BY ALOWING TO MUCH WRONGS when to make to many deals for to keep MURDERERS of BABIES alive when LIFE of the UNBORN are no longer a CHILD only a nothingness of a Blob without any life in the ALIVE GROWING new person . MY PEOPLE PERISH because of LACK of KNOWLEDGE THUS the LORD HATH HAD WRITTEN SAID and THIS STILL is a TRUTH TODAY. ABORTING A MATUREING person IS never an OPTION that should be CHOSEN and IT never was meant to be MADE OK BY MAKING A LAW FOR DEATH of a FETUS. BY THE HANDS OF men and woman. ONES FETUS CHILD should never be an enemy to be destroyed.

    I like your attitude there BZ and I hate to tell you that the video is just what Foxnews has been doing. It's sad that Republicans are so insecure that they can't defend their ideals without attacking the wives and families of Democrats. I guess that just says something about the type of people they are.

    Is there anything wrong with telling the truth about anyone running for a public office of our government when we are looking for someone that has good Charachter and some of some moral ideas about how they really feel about themselves , country and what is right to do if at all possible?? I don't believe there is anything wrong with looking for a person and family that has some GOOD MORAL CHARACTER even though we all can make mistakes. YET we as a people should want the best we can get to work for us when it comes to OUR GOVERNING OFFICIALS that will be making laws depriving us of them and protecting us and our country from enemies and to think we have no enemies is to hide ones head in the sand and not face TRUTH there are people that REALLY do HATE US and OUR SYSTEM of GOVERNMENT considering the FREEDOMS WE do have and want to keep.
