The McBoycott

mcboycott_200x200Why boycott McDonalds, beside the simple fact that their food is largely regarded as being unhealthy? McDonalds restaurants, in some areas including Missouri and Kansas (UPDATE: similar report from Florida), have agreed to place large TVs in their restaurants with the proviso that they broadcast Fox News and only Fox News. One manager explained that it’s corporate policy. A Regional Director for McDonald’s stated that TVs were being placed in all McDonald’s in a five state region. Danya Proud, spokesperson for McDonald’s USA, denied that it is corporate policy, but that it may be a regional or franchise policy.

While the aforementioned sources are from 2008, and FoxNation.com has bashed McDonalds for their “black” web site last year, similar complaints still come in via email. One person reported nice 50″ plasma TVs in at least five McDonald’s franchises, with different owners. The writer was told that they “have to keep it on” and that FNC is the only channel listed in the menu, or in a channel search.

One solution: TV-B-Gone

BOTM: Boycott Of The Month

Per several visitors’ suggestions, FoxNewsBoycott.com will soon start a Boycott Of The Month, which will likely provide a greater impact with a more narrow focus. Rather than inundate visitors with the huge list of Fox News Sponsors, which will remain in place, a couple/few sponsors will be selected, at random, on a monthly basis. The goal will be to have a concentrated effort sending a massive message that their support of Fox News and its personalities will not be tolerated.

The BOTM companies will be listed on the left side of the front page of the site and will be updated around the first of the month.
