How does Robert Greenwald do it? Between The Real McCain, Brave New Films and all his other projects, he's also doing this.

The video above is part of a campaign that Color of Change, an African-American online activist group modeled on, is launching today to persuade the Congressional Black Caucus Institute not to make Fox it's partner for a debate, something the CBC is considering.

The group's founder, James Rucker, said he'll be sending out an email to about 70,000 people this morning, making the case that, according to a draft, "Fox's record is horrible. Their on-air personalities and regular guests consistently marginalize Black politicians, culture, and institutions." The central point echoes last week's MoveOn campaign: "Validating Fox News as legitimate hurts Black America, and undermines the CBC's credibility."


In the time I've been struggling with my computer, this post is already history.

CNN Joins Congressional Black Caucus for Democratic Debate in South Carolina

CNN will partner with the Congressional Black Caucus Political Education and Leadership Institute (CBC Institute) to host a presidential debate among Democratic candidates in South Carolina on Jan. 24, 2008.

The video stands on it's own merit though. (and I'm still having problems)
