Reported by Ellen - April 17, 2009 -

Media Matters has conducted a study of FOX News' promotion of the tax day tea party protests. Their conclusion: From April 6 to April 15, Fox News aired at least 107 commercial promotions for their coverage of the tea party protests that took place on April 15. The "fair and balanced" network "aggressively promoted the events in recent weeks, encouraging viewers to get involved with tea party protests across the country. Indeed, Fox News repeatedly described them as 'FNC Tax Day Tea Parties.' On April 15, four of the network's hosts broadcast live from various tea parties.
