Long-Term Unemployed Launch FOX News Boycott

Post by Guest on Mon Apr 18, 2011 2:19 pm

The long-term unemployed (collectively known as the 99ers) have launched a boycott of sponsors that advertise on the FOX News Channel. Taking a cue from the recently successful effort that resulted in right-wing pundit Glenn Beck losing the support of over 300 sponsors, and the non-renewal of his contract with FCN, a group of 99ers has decided to actuate a similar boycott aimed at the network itself.

“It’s an opportunity for us to have our voices heard, to be visible, to be counted — and to effect well-needed change,” said Yvonne, a 99er from New York who started the group 99vFOX last month. “And it gives us a chance to exact some revenge.”[quote]
