FOX has gone over the line–using racism, prejudice, and fear to smear Barack Obama. Join over 428,000 people in signing the petition today! Click here:

The petition says: “FOX must stop injecting racism, prejudice, and fear into our political dialogue. We intend to hold FOX, its advertisers, and its personalities accountable for FOX’s attempts to smear the Obamas.”

This petition will be hand-delivered by a big group to FOX’s headquarters–in front of other media, so FOX feels the pressure.

Here’s what happened this past month: First, a paid FOX commentator accidentally confused “Obama” with “Osama” and then joked on the air about killing Obama. Next, a FOX anchor said a playful fist pound by Barack and Michelle Obama could be a “terrorist fist jab.” And then, FOX called Michelle Obama “Obama’s baby mama” — slang used to describe an unwed mother.

FOX won’t stop until it becomes too painful to continue—until the public calls them out and advertisers start getting worried.

***I found the above text on Facebook and I wanted you to check it out. Regardless of whether the petition or any of the action that they say they are going to take is true, I feel like it was worth mentioning.
