Thanks for joining the Turn Off Fox effort. We’re already off to a great start — you and more than 125,000 people are calling on public establishments to stop playing Fox News.

The next step is critical — we’re trying to identify businesses and public places where Fox News is playing. Do you know of any? Just letting us know is a great first step. If you can explain to them why they should turn it off, even better.

Registering a business takes seconds, and we provide step-by-step instructions and a flyer you can print which makes the case against Fox, should you choose to talk with a business. Also, if you know of places that would want to declare themselves Fox Free zones, you can sign them up as well using the site. Just click on “Document Fox Free Zones” after you follow the link below.

We have a real opportunity to reduce Fox News’s ability to spread misinformation and stoke division in our communities. Identifying businesses and other public establishments that play Fox News on their televisions is the first step, and it’s critical to the overall effort. Please take a moment to let us know where you’ve seen Fox News playing on TVs in public places, or if there are places you know that would be willing to declare themselves Fox Free:

  2. Boycotting establishments that show Fox News and the companies that advertise on fox is a great Idea; however the effect might not be felt as hard as boycotting the parent company of FOX news. Conducting a boycott of Fox News alone will have very little effect if any, because those who would participate in such a boycott are Americans who don’t watch Fox News as it is. Boycotting Fox’s parent company, News Corporation, and all the other channels it owes might have a greater effect. A well developed e-mail should be generated and distributed to the masses to boycott all News corporation products and media to include, FOX Broadcasting Company, FOX Sports, MyNetworTv, FOX Business, FOX Movie Channel, FOX NEWS Channel, FOX College Sports, FOX Sports En Espanol, FOX Sports NET, FOX Soccer Channel, Fuel TV, FX, NAT Geo Wild, National Geographic Channel, Speed, STAR, and most importantly all local FOX Television Stations. The boycott should call for a date to commence this boycott so that everyone stops watching at the same time. The Boycott should continue until News Corporation develops programming that lives up to its slogan of fair and balance. News Corporation should be asked to generate disclaimers before all its programming that denote actual news programming and programming that is merely entertainment like the Hannity, Glen Beck, and the Greta show. Boycotting the other networks that News Corporation owns will have a greater effect because many Americans who do not agree with the lies and hate message that FOX NEWS presents are not watching FOX News however they are watching News Corporation’s other networks and their local channels. If local channels begun to notice massive decline in their viewership they will pressure News Corporation into re-visiting its programming on FOX NEWS. Sending the boycott email to groups who are greatly affected by the hate message on FOX News; like African Americans, Latinos, and pro- labor groups can generate interest and possible massive movement towards the boycott. The Boycott should take place before the November 2010 elections so that it might gain the attention of politicians and use their platform to increase the interest in the boycott. I’m sure someone out there is eloquent enough to type up the message and through social media distribute it. I would love to generate the message but as you might have notice my grammar is not as strong as it should be to convey something this powerful.

  3. What about government installations that broadcast Fox News during working hours?NASA Stennis Space Center security check in buiding at the South entrance and the Navy’s Naval Warfare Systems Center in New Orleans, LA has big screen televisions blaring Fox News all day long. The hostile environment is palpable.

    I’m so tired of going to the VA in Mansfield Ohio and being forced to listen/watch Fox Not News on their wide screen tv blasti9ing those “liberal anti-americans”. Why is this hate propaganda allowed on TV’s where people have no choice? And, by the way, check on those conservative patriots who haven’t served but blast the liberals who have (Chickenhawks.com).

    I always get so ticked off when the military gets into this conservative crap and into fox news……….they hate obama, and they hate the healthcare bill and they dont want socialized medicine………yet they have socialized medicine, its called the VA. oh but wait, its okay if you serve and get commie healthcare?

  6. Actualy I think that progressives should watch Faux News for the same reason we should read Mien Kampf because it’t a good way to know what the bastards are thinking and what they want to do.
