Moving on Fox
The liberal group MoveOn.org is hammering on the Fox News Channel, urging a major home-improvement advertiser to pull ads from the network.
“Home Depot says they are proenvironment. But they advertise on Fox — which consistently denies global warming and deceives the public on this issue,” Adam Green, of MoveOn.org Civic Action wrote in a mass membership e-mail Aug. 13.
“We’ve teamed up with the Sierra Club and others, asking Home Depot to pull their ads from Fox,” Mr. Green wrote. “Our efforts are working. Several days ago, Home Depot executives personally responded to e-mails from activists — and announced they would not advertise on Bill O’Reilly. But that’s not enough.”
Mr. Green urged recipients to email a Home Depot spokesman, referencing a petition that declares, “If Home Depot is serious about protecting the environment, they must stop advertising on Fox — a network that consistently spreads misinformation about and denies the existence of global warming.”
