FOX Attacks Black America [VIDEO]
ColorOfChange.org has launched a campaign to urge the Congressional Black Caucus to reject a partnership with FOX News that would only legitimize the network which: "has a horrible record of attacking Black people, leaders, and cultural institutions." COC calls the partnership "shameful."
Watch the video for a sampling. It's absolutely repulsive.
From the campaign letter: "We've spoken several times with the Institute's executive director, and she says that she and the board welcome public comment. So we wanted to invite you to do exactly that. The Institute hasn't made a final decision, but they'll make an announcement in the next few days."

Update: CNN has announced that they (and ostensibly NOT Fox News) will partner with the Congressional Black Caucus for the Jan. '08 presidential debate in South Carolina. Expect the rhetoric to be ratcheted up from the ABSOLUTELY NOT RIGHT WING FOX network. Will they top the "stalinists" comment? Don't bother watching to find out...
This does not mean, however, that the CBC has decided to reject FOX entirely, just for this single debate... Sorry for the false alarm...
