Robert Greenwald, progressive Film Documentary Mogul, has created a new video


The video was made in association with the new website,

The website includes this statement with the video:
Fox is not a credible news outlet and needs to be stopped. Foxattacks.com will give you the information and tools you need to hit fox where it hurts. The current video presents the erroneous and slanted stories Fox recently ran about Barack Obama. In response, Obama refused to appear on Fox. Watch the video, then follow Obama's lead and... Do Something.

The site offers this moveon.org action page as an action step against Fox that you can take. For more background on this issue, see this article by MYDD's Chris Bowers. ACTION: Freeze Out Fox News

Just checking google news, here's whiney Bill O'Reilly, complaining that his attack film crew wasn't allowed in the Hollywood fundraiser. Of course, no press were allowed, but O'Reilly misleadingly titles his unjournalistic, unbalanced hit piece Barack Obama Disses the Press O'Reilly, a laughable oaf, characterized by Al Franken as a lying liar.

It's time the Democrats got smart with their star power. Bush and his team played hardball with the media, drastically limiting access unless they towed some lines set by the likes of Karl Rove. The Dems should be standing up to Fox and blowing them off unless they come around and play ball. They have the power-- the star power of Obama, Hillary, Pelosi, Reid-- and they should be using it.
