Is Fox News Too Liberal?

I can’t decide if this is insane or brilliant. A Tea Party group organized a three-day boycott of Fox News, claiming the right-wing “news” source is too liberal. The boycott started Thursday and ended this morning. According to the group’s website:

FOX needs the Tea Party/conservatives more than the conservatives need FOX after FOX turned left, basically selling out the people who made FOX successful in an attempt to earn an extra buck.

They also accused Fox of participating in a Benghazi cover-up, of going soft on immigration, and failing to discover the truth about Obama’s birth certificate.

We need Fox to turn right. We think this is a cover-up and Fox is aiding and abetting it. This is the way Hitler started taking over Germany, by managing and manipulating the news media.

So, are they serious, or is this an attempt to outflank Fox News by opening up a new front on their right flank against them?

    Any attack on FOX works for me. Ever notice how right-wingers are super trigger-happy with Hitler-level hyperbole? It’s like they’ve never heard of Godwin’s Law

    “We have seen FOX suddenly get very loud about Benghazi after the 1st boycott, but conservatives are conservative because they are not stupid,” the website reads. “We recognize, easily, loud noise which is low on substance. In other words, by whining loudly about Benghazi without the kind of hard-hitting investigative reporting that brought down Nixon over Watergate, what we are seeing from FOX IMO is smoke and mirrors; a trick, to fool us into dutifully genuflecting at their alter [sic] of their arrogant hosts who throw us crumbs with one hand while insulting us with the other. If we want FOX to get serious, we’re going to have to keep hitting them hard. And that is just exactly what we’re going to do.”

    In other words, FOX News is just pandering to the conservative masses while raking in the cash? They’re not “real” conservatives? Basically snake oil salesmen with plaid jackets who know exactly what their audience wants to hear and gives it to them in spades even though there’s no real substance?

    I’m just shocked.

    If Fox News takes another right turn, would that make a u-turn? No, I guess any number of rights wouldn’t make a left.
