I am writing to inform you that I will not purchase your products as long as you advertise on FOX News.
FOX News does not broadcast news, it broadcasts rightwing smears, hatred, and incitement to violence - including violence against American citizens, police officers, Democratic leaders, and President Obama.
Canceling Glenn Beck's show was not sufficient. His hate speech is fully echoed by Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, and other FOX hosts and regular guests. Since 2009, their incitement is connected to the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in Kansas, a gun battle that wounded two policemen in Oakland, and the murder of three policemen in Pittsburgh.
In addition, FOX News broadcasts Republican political propaganda every hour of every day, despite News Corp chairman Rupert Murdoch statement that FOX should not promote "the Tea Party or any other party." The Republican "Tea Party" was largely created in 2009 by Glenn Beck. And in 2010, FOX contributed $1 million directly to the Republican Governor's Association.
Your advertising dollars are helping FOX News spread hatred, incite acts of violence and murder, and destroy our democracy.
I urge you to stop advertising on FOX News immediately.
To protest, we are boycotting these Fox News sponsors.
For 4 years, Bill O'Reilly demonized little-known Kansas doctor George Tiller. On 5/31/09, anti-abortion fanatic Scott Roeder murdered Tiller at his church.
For 18 months, Glenn Beck demonized the little-known Tides Foundation in San Francisco. On 7/18/10, Byron Williams, a convicted felon, got into a shootout with police while on his way to "kill people of importance at the Tides Foundation and the ACLU," wounding two policemen.
On 8/6/09, Glenn Beck "joked" about giving Speaker Pelosi a glass of wine with poison.
On 7/28/09, Glenn Beck called President Obama a racist: "The President has exposed himself as a guy ... over and over and over again ... who has a deep-seated hatred for white people ... This man is a racist."
Such incitement of hatred and violence is utterly intolerable in a democracy. To protest, we are boycotting these Fox News sponsors. We join with Media Matters, FoxNewsBoycott, ColorOfChange, and other groups in this boycott.
