I got an email from MoveOn.org today...

"Seven days a week, 24 hours a day, Fox News Channel turns Republican talking points into news headlines. Now Uncovered director Robert Greenwald--working with a group of Fox-monitoring MoveOn members--has put together a documentary film called
Outfoxed that exposes Fox for what it is: partisan spin, not news.

This Sunday evening, July 18, you're invited to be among the first to see Outfoxed at one of over 2,500 house parties across the nation, hosted by MoveOn and Common Cause members. Then join together in a coast-to-coast conference call with comedian and radio host Al Franken and the movie's director, Robert Greenwald. We'll kick off an exciting campaign to take on Fox for its partisan reporting and deceptive slogan "Fair and Balanced."

(If "house parties" are not what you want, but would like to still buy the video for $9.95, which is what I'm going to do, it's available at www.MoveOn. org...)

The note went on...

"Fox News makes no real distinction between its opinion shows and its news coverage---partisan politics infuse all of Fox's programming. The media watch FAIR just released a study of Fox's flagship evening news program, finding Republican guests outnumber Democrats 5 to 1. Having an opinion is one thing. Insisting your partisian politicking is "fair and balanced" journalism is quite another. Whether you agree with Fox's politics is beside the point..citizens in a democracy depend on unbiased news reporting."

For more info, go to www.MoveOn.org and forgive this post if you're a member of MoveOn and have already gotten this message. 8)
