Protest Fox News Channel's War Coverage

THURSDAY, APRIL 3: PROTEST FOX TV'S WAR COVERAGE
Fox News Channel is the most pro-war television station in the United States. While claiming to be "fair and balanced", Fox actually makes no attempt to be either one. Rather than reporting the news, Fox cheerleads for the Pentagon. Rather than reporting the reality of the war in Iraq, Fox glorifies the warriors and underplays the human cost of war.
Fox has also aggressively attacked the peace movement. In just the last few days, Fox's Bill O'Reilly proposed that anti-war protesters be arrested as terrorists, and Fox made fun of peace activists as they staged a die-in in New York City. This is not journalism, it is propaganda.
CALL TO ACTION
Join Global Exchange, CodePink, and Media Alliance in organizing protests outside of Fox affiliates throughout the country. Insist that Fox report the reality of war, including information and in-depth stories about civilian and military casualties. Also insist that Fox News Channel balance its coverage by interviewing people who oppose the U.S. war policy.
