Here’s the thing.
I don’t want to give a fuck about Fox News. I would like it to not be my concern.
But to echo the THIRD MAN, “we do not choose our concerns”. We are born into our times, and must either be shaper or shaped. Producer or product. Labeler or Labled.
I prefer striving toward the former.
Falling down going forward. Fighting all the idiocies and hatemongers and muckrackers of our age.
Fighting all those sneaky foxes. Fighting all the things that would betray us.
There has been a pattern going on too long now, of right wing interests attacking any person of color (be that color Black, or Brown, or Pink) who will not cowtow to their ever more bigoted and totalitarian line. From mayors and governors, elected by many people, being removed from office by the machinations of a klannish and goosestepping few, to mass-media, particularly the ‘news’, as ever more aggregious sounding board for voices of hate.
The Fox News Company indeed.
Here are some other voices, offering the news you won’t hear from Fox:
MOVE ON — I particularly like the coverage on a Senator Simpson and his ‘stance’ on Social Security recipients. Amazing. 🙂
BOYCOTT FOX NEWS site –site is a little wacky, but I quite like his list of Fox sponsors to boycott. Done and Done. 🙂
DEMOCRATS.COM? –I’ve lived long enough to see the culpability of both parties. Many democrats are acually conservatives in hiding. And a few republicans are actually a throwback to the progressive, abolitionist leanings of what their party was before being hijacked by racists post the reconstruction. But even if Democrats as a rule, don’t walk the talk, I at least like the fact that this site at least talks the talk.
Another BOYCOTT FOX site – Pretty packed site. Definitely worth taking for a spin!
I’ll add to the list as we go.
