Fox petition email I just recieved from Care2

Just got this email yesterday, following the TEA parties. It pissed me off at first, than made me giggle a little. Anyone who looks at the numbers of people that watch these programs (Fox, CNN, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, CBS etc.) knows full well that Fox destroys everyone in ratings. Looks like we are starting to make some headway, if we have political organizations in an uproar with no elections coming up (Yes, Care2 is a political organization. I got multiple emails from them during election time about left leaning politicians running for office). Anywhere, here is the email.



Dear Jason,

Fox News has crossed the line. For news coverage to be "fair and balanced," there has to be a clear boundary between legitimate commentary and demagoguery. Tell Fox News to denounce the increasingly outrageous rhetoric

Several recent actions on Fox News demonstrate that the network is contributing to a culture of conservative paranoia. For example, since launching his Fox News show, Glenn Beck has engaged in increasingly outrageous rhetoric from imitating President Obama pouring gasoline onto the "average American" to mocking Obama's aunt's "limp."

And Beck and Fox News have engaged in anti-Obama political activism through their aggressive promotion of yesterday's "tea party protests," which the network has portrayed as a response to Obama's fiscal policies.

In the past, Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace has criticized his colleagues when they have undermined his network's credibility. If Wallace wants to repair the damage done to his network's credibility, he needs to speak out now.

Please sign the petition to Wallace today. Your signature, along with tens of thousands of other signatures will be delivered to Fox News headquarters this Friday.


Thanks for taking action!

Natasha

The tea parties definitely have the leftists in a panic.

Last ratings I heard Fox had more viewers than the other three combined. Further evidence America is still right of center.

I was just about to sign the petition in this thread when I noticed the petition site is run by Care2.

What do you know about Care2 and do you know how you got on their spam list?

I have been trying to figure out how I got on their spam list since before the elections. I have almost unsubscribed a few times, but decided not to... just so I know what the "others" are doing

It may have been from a poll or petition, may have been from buying McCain/Palin yard signs, who knows. But, I can garuntee by "agreeing" to Care2's terms and conditions in order to sign that petition, you will get their spam. Good news is that it is easy to unsubscribe.

I started that thread Skeet , I'm still alive and have not received any spam.
I didn't notice the other liberal petitions there until after signing it. It was posted at another 4WD site I visit and there has been no associated problems. If it in fact does do some good, I signed. I also noticed some of the other petition site have liberal petitions. I suppose they have to post theirs somewhere too.

EDIT: I also remember a box you had to uncheck after signing to keep from getting any/other petition updates.
