Tea Pouty Boycotts Fox News ... Too Liberal

Tea Party Boycotts Fox News For Being Too Liberal 2013/03/24 By Egberto Willies At first the piece from The Raw Story seemed like a joke, “Tea Party group boycotting Fox News for becoming ‘too liberal’”. When realizing it was in fact not a joke it was necessary to find out exactly why the Tea Party thought Fox News was going Liberal. Here is what the Daily Beast reported one of the participants in the boycott had to say. Particularly after the election, Fox keeps turning to the left,” said Stan Hjerlied, 75, of Fort Collins, Colo., and a participant in the boycott. He pointed to an interview Fox News CEO Roger Ailes gave after the election in which he said that the Republican Party and Fox News need to modernize, especially around immigration. “So we are really losing our only conservative network. In other words they are boycotting Fox News because Fox News decided to lay off the Benghazi lies. They are boycotting Fox News because Roger Ailes is “retooling” to prevent the total irrelevance of Fox News as a news organization. Any expectation that Fox News is Liberal or has any affinity for the President should have been dispelled by the coverage they gave to President Obama in Israel. President Obama received the highest civilian Israeli award, the Israeli Medal of Distinction, and while that was being covered they were attacking the President’s commitment to Israel and his Affordable Health Care bill.
