Check out this video by filmmaker Robert Greenwald called Fox Attacks Black America. Note the vicious, distorted attacks on CBC Member Barack Obama.

Color of Change, a new progressive group representing tens of thousands of African-Americans and supporters, is launching a new campaign today to persuade the CBC Institute to hold their debate somewhere other than race-baiting, black-hating Fox News. I’ve heard whispers some at the CBC are considering CNN. I’d prefer black-owned TV1 — CNN has its own troubles hosting guys like Glenn Beck. Still, CNN is a better choice by far than Fox. James Rucker of Color of Change has sent a letter to the CBC Institute, so far with no response. Hmm.

Here’s the message:

Fox News has consistently attacked Black people, leaders, and cultural institutions. Despite this fact, the Congressional Black Caucus Institute is in negotiations with Fox to co-host presidential debates.

Should the CBC Institute partner with Fox, it would legitimize Fox as a fair and balanced news source, effectively disregarding Fox’s clearly hostile stance towards Black political interests. It runs counter to the stated goals of the Institute as well as the CBC’s commitment to advocate for racial equality and justice and its desire to be considered the “conscience of Congress.”

You can help the CBC Institute do the right thing. Let them know that they should drop Fox now.

I’m a member of Color of Change. Please join me in signing the petition.

Check out more examples of Fox’s hate here. Ugh. CBC, as Spike would say: Do The Right Thing.
