Just imagine if Rush Limbaugh was organizing this against CNN

Liberals (MOVEON) about to pressure advertisers to DROP FOX NEWS

After all if you can't succeed because the people FREELY CHOOSE what to watch, and you dislike that choice, TAKE AWAY THE CHOICE BY OTHER MEANS, because YOU know what's best.

Why am I still a democrat?

NEW YORK (AP) - Liberal activists are stepping up their campaign against Fox News Channel by pressuring advertisers not to patronize the network.

MoveOn("we paid for this party").org, the Campaign for America's Future and liberal blogs like are asking thousands of supporters to monitor who is advertising on the network.

Debbie Schlussel: Murdoch, News Corp Sixth Biggest Hillary Donor

By Debbie Schlussel

I've never believed that Rupert Murdoch or the executives that run FOX News and its owner News Corp (except Roger Ailes) were or are conservatives. They're just opportunists. They found a niche with FOX News, and they milked it, laughing at conservatives all the way to the bank.

And today's Wall Street Journal "Washington Wire" confirms it. The folks at Murdoch's News Corp (owner of FOX News and the New York Post, among others) are the sixth largest donor source for the Hillary Rodhan Cankles Clinton campaign and that includes Cankles donor Murdoch, himself:

Even as Democrats have scuttled Fox News presidential debate out of bias concerns, employees of owner News Corp., helped by CEO Rupert Murdoch's $2,300 donation, are Clinton's sixth-largest corporate source of campaign funds . . . . Clinton leads presidential candidates of both parties with $413,000 from lobbyists, according to CRP, trailed by McCain's $262,000.
