Looks like some kind of protest campaign is underway and set for a demonstration January 2nd.

The target is the New York Post and possibly FoxNews, but not limited to those.

The NYPost and FoxNews is owned by Rupert Murdoch.

The organizers are calling Rupert Murdoch a "Right Wing Corporate Racist".

The #Occupy movement is involved.



‘Shutdown,’ ‘die-in’ demonstration targets ‘racist right-winger’ Murdoch

(XSportiv) – The Occupy movement and other leftist groups are attempting to use the anti-cop furor for a “die-in” and “shutdown” protest targeting Fox News and the New York Post.

The demonstration is scheduled for Jan. 2 at New Corporation’s Midtown Manhattan headquarters, with invitations posted at Occupy-affiliated Facebook pages.

The invitation reads: ..........................>


Fox News Targeted in ‘Shutdown’ Campaign


New York: #HAPPYNEWYEARS-Die In And Shutdown Of Racist 1% NY POST! Because Black Lives Matter!

I wonder how many police state actions happen in cities and counties controlled by "Left Wing" government politicians?

They need to expose all the corruption regardless of political ideals IMO.

Well?

Pros - Cons

The one pro that I see is that people are finally targeting the media and going after Murdoch's empire is a great start!


I will remain optimistic and believe that this is will extend to CNN/MSNBC

I still laugh about the whole #### CNN chant that became a hashtag!

Only a matter of time, the only ones left contributing the MSM ratings are old people!

I watch Fox because they will cover stories that the others won't, but lately, they seem to follow the official script when it comes to making excuses for the cops. The snide remarks about the Mayor not supporting them and then go on to make it look like the cops are just innocent guys, doing their jobs and there's no real story behind all this. When I see stuff like this, it only enforces the fact that non of the MSM can be trusted to tell us the truth, without spinning it to forward their own agenda.

And people thought Obama was being stupide.

Before this is over Obama's agenda driven insanity will be known as the greatest enslaver of black folks ever. They are being used as scapegoats of everything that happens from now on with the "black lives' matter " slogan.

Can't black folks see this is a white elitist driven agenda?? IMO

Personally... I'd recommend shutting the tv off then selling it to a friend.

Tv just sucks all the way around.

I started to move in that direction by having cable shut off. I will miss Robin and Jenifer.

Anyway this action will simply be a ratings booster for Fox.

The best thing to do against FOX NEWS is convince people to turn off their subscription.

Doing things like this only gives them more fodder for their faithful, who will defend them to the end, no matter how ridiculous their stories and positions get.

Honestly, I don't see any cons to this. Worst-case scenario, it will destroy FOX and they are replaced by somebody even more extreme. Best case, it will make everybody analyze MSM and force their hands into more neutral reporting and less emotional sensationalism.

And, for Pete's sake, maybe scaring people and peddling fear will no longer be the preferred method of spreading news.

Well MSNBC covers stories that Fox won't, it is all relative to the who what when where and why of the story and what narrative it fits.
They both stink.


I do agree this will just boost the ratings though.
All publicity is good publicity

FOX serves an ultra conservative agenda and placates racists sometimes to the point of convincing them they aren't racist just everyone else is playing the race card. That said, this won't work. The FOX crowd has to die out... you're programmed to hate protesters and anything else not status quo... basically FOX says hate it, you hate it.. FOX says love it you love it, protest won't work in this area.

They should include ALL the msm. Bring them all down till they start telling the truth and acting like they are actually REPORTING news,instead of putting out their agenda for the masses.

I have mixed feelings on this. I know the protest will not change a thing for the better. Hacking them and getting data that incriminates them pushing an agenda of Ruperts could but who is going to do that?

Anyway so knowing this will not change anything I guess my strongest feeling on it would be "indifferent".

On the rare occasions there is a TV with it on where I am at I block out what they are saying and just look at the pretty women.

1. An "attack" on FOX, CNN, MSNBC ... ( and/or other MSNs ) ???

OR

2. Another F.F. ... ( or at a minimum, some sort of distraction ) ???

STRONG-OPINION: "2."

( and i.e. fueling the unrest; as can be seen in this thread )

Yes, nothing says "freedom" like trying to stop other people from speaking what they want, and others from listening to it.

I wonder if these idiots can even see their own self-righteous arrogance?

Fox is produced, scripted, directed and targeted to a particular demographic. Fox is nothing more than a platform
to hang advertising on. Fox is in a business to sell Depends, Viagra and other products to older conservative and not to
discerning or educated Americans. It's a perfect business model, well researched and implemented.

Fox doesn't care if there is a boycott, because they know their viewer base is solid and they give the geezers what they expect and want and in return they have a huge market share.

No one ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American people......HL Mencken....

Racist seems to allways be preceded by "right wing". Left wingers are just if not more racist than the right.

I work union, and the unions are chuck full of some of the most bigoted racists I have ever seen and most are die hard left wing democrats.

Left wing policies like affirmative action, anti voter id, war on poverty gov handout programs reek of racism. Even gun control was left wing bred racism.

Funny how the best way to direct attention away from your faults is to try to focus it toward someone else.

Sure there is racism on the right, Murdock and fox maybe the worst, I don't really know since I don't watch fox, or any tv for that matter.

It just kinda pisses me off that the left brands the entire right as automatically racist when there is so much of it in their own camp.

Almost like some groups love to cast blame somewhere to deflect their own guilt.

Not defending fox, but ---

How is this different from the liberal media constantly telling white people they ARE racists? Do you really think they don't have an agenda? Why can't we truly find the middle? Serious question. Whose agenda is the media following?

You seem confused we are talking about FOX "news". The people on FOX do not say what they want they all follow a script. Just look at what happened the Judge and Beck when they spoke their minds they lost their jobs. The tools at FOX are just like all the other tools on the other MSM propaganda networks they say what they told to say.
