40 Progressive Groups Try To Kick Fox News Off Air

Over 40 progressive organizations, including the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation and GLAAD, on Tuesday released an open letter urging media buyers not to buy advertisements on Fox News or risk damaging the reputation of their brands. “Fox News has already made clear what you can expect from the network next year: more Tucker, more lies, more extremism, and more racism,” the groups say, according to an advance copy of the letter obtained by TheWrap. “Use this inflection point to quietly part ways with Fox News.” The letter points to top-rated primetime programming from Tucker Carlson to make its case that the leading cable news network spent the past year “pushing deadly lies about COVID-19, routinely broadcasting racist rhetoric, and questioning the outcome of the election while putting democracy in peril.”.
