FOX News Sexsational, or Why do you think they're called media whores?

Reported by Chrish - November 15, 2007 -

Brave New Films, which recently released FOXAttacks: Decency, has followed up with a website launch, FOXNewsPorn.com. All the video and screenshots are taken directly from FOX "News" broadcasts, where smut is simultaneously denounced and promoted.

From a letter from Robert Greenwald, director and producer:

Satire and parody aside, we think this is extremely objectionable, misogynistic content. We still don't understand how FOX is allowed to call this "news." So let's make this campaign count, and hit FOX where it hurts -- their Fair and Balance Sheet.

Many of you have been helping to create a massive database of local FOX advertisers. Now it's time to start calling them. Pick one or two to call and ask them to please not advertise on a channel that shows Girls Gone Wild during prime time, and exploits women 24/7. Let them know in very personal terms why this matters to you.

Click for a list of FOX advertisers near you.

And please let us know how it goes! When you click on the 'call' or 'email' advertiser link, you'll get an example script, and a form where you can describe what happened. Fill it out so we can all share information on how advertisers are reacting to the campaign. Plus, others will be inspired to act and we can keep the pressure on these merchants of immorality. Be creative make it personal and express how you feel.

Robert Greenwald, Cliff Schecter, and the Brave New Films team.

P.S. It's getting close to gift-giving time, so we've put together a special edition DVD of Outfoxed with all the FOX Attacks videos and other bonus features. The perfect stocking stuffer for that special conservative in your life. Get one for $12.95 or a 5 pack for $50.
