Turn Off Fox

Miquelon.org supports the Turn Off Fox campaign.

“Many of us already know that Fox News is biased — but it’s actually much worse than that. For years they have used lies, distortions, and race-baiting to divide this country. Recently, it’s gotten downright dangerous. Earlier this summer, a heavily armed man got into a gun fight with police after he was pulled over on his way to kill people at the Tides Foundation — an obscure non-profit that Glenn Beck regularly demonizes on his Fox News TV show.

Fox News is bad news for America — and it spreads, and is legitimized, partly through TVs in public places. That’s why I’ve joined the TurnOffFox campaign — the first part of a larger campaign to diminish the influence of Fox. It’s about educating people about Fox and getting it turned off in stores, restaurants, and other public places.”

  1. This is the network that got the US into the Iraq War. Come to think of it, just about anything bad, including being the pump for French-bashing, has its’ source at Fox. Any time that I have watched, I find myself getting ill, so, I quit watching long ago.

  2. Good move, Miquelon. For too long have Fox News spread hate and lies. Now’s the time to fight back.

  3. As a Brit who visited the USA and was unfortunate enough to catch some of Fox news’s output I was stunned by the complete lack of balance and heavy right-wing bias shown by this channel. Do people actually watch this in the states?
    It is quite astonishing that the richest country in the world produces such utter drivel

  4. The bigM, it’s said to say, but the Fox Network is very popular.  Alot of people like it because the like the way the “news” is presented. 

  5. Really , the bigm ?
    I would think a major apologist for French-bashing like yourself would love Faux.

    What happened there, mate ?

  6. Hi all, long time no speak.
    Someone on TurnoffFox said Fox was lazy journalism, sensationalism, etc.
    While Fox is paramount in all that should not be called journalism, with grim consequences as we all know, journalism in general has lost a lot of credit over the years : journalists merely doing copy/pastes of other articles, without added value nor even the most basic verifications, for the sake of being “productive” and feed their audiences with growing BS. Besides sensationalist articles have been growing in number, leaving contextual, in-depth, literate articles/shows on the side of the road.

    Fox started out with sensationalism, until they smilingly entered the dark side big time. How many Fox news alter ego will we have the displeasure (the obligation?) to watch in days to come?

  7. French basher? No at all Barney. An interested party who sometimes feels that he has to comment on anti-British comments on this site.  I’m fighting ignorance and prejudice, like you

  8. Miquelon.org is concerned first and foremost with French-bashing, thebigm.

    People who  come here only to lecture us about anti-British comments which on this site are marginal at best and always an exasperated answer to vicious French-bashing are apologists for French-bashing.
    You’re not fooling anyone.

  9. 16 Septembre 2010. France 2 découvre le “French-bashing”, très à la mode depuis…..juillet.

    J’ai honte pour eux et pour le journalisme français.

    1. Oui, c’est aussi ce qui m’a choqué par exemple pour ce qui est des films anti-Français sortant en France.

      Les Français de métropole semblent être mal informés sur ce phénomène, au point où ils réagissent positivement au French-Bashing, en n’étant pas conscient, comme s’il s’agissait d’une auto-critique satirique venant d’autres Français.

      Et ils laissent sur le net des commentaires ravis concernant des films qui sont conçus pour insulter et ridiculiser leur identité.
