The battle steps up.
Liberals Go After Fox News Advertisers

NEW YORK (AP) -- Liberal activists are stepping up their campaign against Fox News Channel by pressuring advertisers not to patronize the network.
MoveOn.org, the Campaign for America's Future and liberal blogs like DailyKos.com are asking thousands of supporters to monitor who is advertising on the network. Once a database is gathered, an organized phone-calling campaign will begin, said Jim Gilliam, vice president of media strategy for Brave New Films, a company that has made anti-Fox videos.
MoveOn.org is campaigning against Fox because it says the network characterizes itself as a fair news network when it consistently favors a conservative point of view, said Adam Green, the organization's spokesman.
"We're not trying to silence anybody," Green said. "Rush Limbaugh has a right to be on the air - he admits his point of view. Fox doesn't."
Every single time they get confronted on their hatespeech or lying, they grab the censorship meme and run with it.
Remember Coulters squawking about Elizabeth Edwards?
"You're telling me to stop speaking, you're tellling me to stop writing books, you're telling me to not do my columns." That is all they understand, what they see as being taken away from them. Not what Elizabeth Edwards was trying to ask her to contribute to the discussion- thoughtful, insightful, rational dialogue.
Fox will survive like a cockroach, we'll keep on railing against it, but at least we can say we tried.
