Help Muzzle Fox News

Published: Jan. 22, 2021


Help muzzle white supremacists’ biggest megaphone: Fox News.

If we can send enough messages to the companies giving millions in advertising money to Fox News today, we can send a strong message to some of the biggest U.S. corporations that there are consequences to being associated with hateful platforms like Fox News.

Click here to send a message demanding that 12 of Fox News’s biggest advertisers stop funding Fox now.

Here’s the list of the top 12 companies giving millions of advertising money to Fox News every year:

According to Media Matters, Fox News cast doubt on or pushed conspiracy theories about the November election nearly 800 times. Their repeated lies and incitements to violence led directly and predictably to the violence at the People’s Capitol on January 6th.

This obviously isn’t just a matter of lies about the election. — Fox’s lies hurt all of our communities, whether they’re about climate denialism, scapegoating immigrants, undermining COVID public health measures, or saying that Black Lives Matter is going to “come for you” (Tucker Carlson, June 8, 2020).

It’s long past time for us to turn off Fox’s money faucet and the hypocrisy we’re seeing from corporations across the spectrum. At the same time as they’re putting out statements condemning the January 6 attacks, corporations like General Motors, Liberty Mutual, GlaxoSmithKline, and Subaru have continued buying ads on Fox News.

Join our campaign to call out the companies underwriting Fox’s dangerous lies and enabling fascist violence. These companies can either keep on funding Fox’s lies or they can say that they support American democracy — not both. It’s high time for them to choose.
