Citing the “platform” Fox News gives Glenn Beck to promote his events, the liberal MoveOn.org Friday encouraged members to support a new project by ColorofChange called, “TurnOffFox.”
According to the e-mail, which was forwarded by MoveOn to its members, “TurnOffFox is the first step in our overall effort to beat back the poison, hate, and division of Fox.
We’ll get Fox turned off in stores, restaurants, and other public places-places where Fox pulls in new viewers and gains legitimacy.”
The e-mail goes on to say that,
“The goal of Turn Off Fox is to reduce the number of public TVs showing Fox News, while spreading the word about Fox’s poison (and how it works) to those who don’t know.”
In the past, efforts have been made to target advertisers of Fox News programs, including Glenn Beck.
As far as I know, this is the first effort designed to censor the network from being shown in public facilities.
