Foxless in America

Got this from Jim Culleny of NoUtopia.
I NEVER EVER watch Fox News, and I didn’t think I have the option to take it off my cable list of channels. I never thought of writing Fox to express my disgust at their biased news coverage. But a friend of Jim’s sent him the following e-mail, which I share here in hopes of generating some direct dissent against Fox News Network:
Subject: Foxless in America:
This is such simple, brilliant, potentially effective idea, I wish I could say I thought of it. It was actually sent to me by a friend who is impatient for grass roots action against the right wing to begin. I’m doing this at once. I hope you’ll decide to do the same and circulate the idea to at least a hundred million of your closest friends.
If you, too, have had enough with the FOX news channel, please read below. This action will make your voice heard while simply choosing not to watch the station can not.
I have decided to make a political statement. I called mySatellite TV provider and asked them to remove Fox News from my television. Since the election I have wanted to stick my head out of a window of a tall building and shout I can’t take it anymore but I soon came to realize that there is a better and easier way to send a message to Rupert Murdoch and his blathering bunch at Fox News and that was to simply make them disappear from my life.
I called my cable TV provider and had Fox News deleted from my television. It was simple I called the Repair Department at Comcast and said I wanted to be Foxless in America. I then wrote an email to the following: Reed Nolte VP Investor Relations for News Corporation (the parent company of Fox News) at and Brian Lewis, Senior VP Corporate Communications for Fox News at and to top it off I copied I told them that I cannot take the Fox distortion and biased presentation of the news any longer and that they ought to inform their sponsors that there are millions like me. I can’t tell you the immense satisfaction I gained from becoming Foxless in America.
I am asking you to follow me in this protest and let it be heard by all that want to control what we all see and hear. This could be a way to have your voice heard-Become Foxless in America. We can start a movement if each of you send this email to all the others you know who are fed up with Fox News.

The email ends with some quotes worth sharing here:

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” — – -Mahatma Ghandi

“”If all that Americans want is security, they can go to prison. They’ll have enough to eat, a bed and a roof over their heads. But if an American wants to preserve his dignity and his equality as a human being, he must not bow his neck to any dictatorial government.” — – – Dwight D. Eisenhower

“”I’d rather be Don Quixote than another statistic.”
–Douglas L. Wilson

“”To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.” — Theodore Roosevelt
