Americans depend on objective reporting of the news -- especially during election season. But News Corp's $1 million contribution to the Republican Governors Association makes FOX a deeply partisan observer in the reporting of the 2010 gubernatorial elections.
Americans deserve to know about your direct involvement in this campaign. You must post a disclaimer about News Corp's political contribution during your gubernatorial election coverage.
But this contribution crosses a line that FOX has never crossed before, and takes its bias to a whole new level.
It's time for FOX to own up to its bias. During FOX's 2010 governors race coverage, FOX must disclose News Corp's million dollar support of Republican gubernatorial candidates.
FOX can no longer claim to be an impartial observer in this election. But FOX's election coverage will be watched by millions of voters, and those voters deserve to know that FOX and its parent company are deeply invested in the outcome. That's why FOX must disclose News Corp's contribution to its viewers.Americans depend on objective reporting of the news -- especially during election... more
It's happened to all of us. You're in a public place and FOX News is on TV. You sit and simmer, or pack up and move on. You can't bear the idea that the lies, distortions and race-baiting that FOX News uses to divide our country are being promoted as mainstream news.
FOX is poisonous — and it spreads and is legitimized partly through public TVs. It's why CREDO is joining with Color of Change to launch Turn Off FOX — a massive campaign to get FOX turned off in stores, restaurants, and other public places.
Will you join us in calling on businesses in your community and across the country to stop airing FOX, and declare your own household a "FOX-free zone"? With thousands of our signatures to back them up, Turn Off FOX members will visit local businesses that play FOX, explain how divisive and dangerous it is, and ask them to turn it off.
Please take a moment to add your voice — you'll get a FREE "Turn Off FOX" sticker, and we'll tell you how to get more involved.
Some people watch Fox at home because it reflects their view of the world; but there are others who see it on TV in public places and assume that it's legitimate news. FOX News is often on in bars, restaurants, airport lounges, stores — appearing to be real news, while spreading lies, hate, division and promoting the political agenda that was confirmed with FOX parent company News Corporation's $1 million contribution to elect Republican governors.
The goal of Turn Off FOX is to reduce the number of public TVs showing FOX News, while spreading the word about FOX's poison (and how it works) to those who don't know.
Signing up for the campaign is just the first step. We make it easy for you to tell us about businesses playing FOX. If you're willing to talk with them, we'll provide you with straightforward materials that explain why they shouldn't be a party to what FOX is doing. And if there are businesses you know that want to tell the world they would never play FOX, you can help them declare themselves a "FOX-free zone."
As businesses Turn off FOX and stand up as FOX Free, and as we encourage our friends and family to do the same, we'll help make clear, to people across the country, what FOX is about. And we'll reduce their ability to do harm.http://colorofchange.org/turnofffox/sticker/tof.html?&credo... more
The time is upon is – the season premiere of Glee is less than 24 hours away and I thought I could fit one more blog post on to the finer dandy.
Even so, I refuse to call myself a “Gleek“. Yes, I am a fan. Yes, I adore the show. Yes, I want to be on the show – but no matter what, I will never use that label. It’s nothing personal. It holds a totally different meaning to me than to everyone else. It’s a good thing that Urban Dictionary has my definition of the word...

You would think that I would be constantly blogging about Glee considering the season premiere is on Tuesday (it runs into Lost – thank the heavens for DVR) – but I think there is enough coverage on the phenomenon. In fact, the coverage and hype may be borderline overkill – but that’s a totally different story.
For now, I will just relish the moment. I have been VERY cognizant of how much Glee info I let into my pop culture orbit. There has been this onslaught of “Gleek Week” activities that I have avoided because I do not want to be oversaturated with Glee. Too much of what I think is a good thing can get exhausting. In other words, I don’t want the same thing that happened with Ugly Betty to happen with Glee. I thought Betty was so great and groundbreaking and then I just got so damn bored with the show – and now look at it. The show is seeing an end this week.
Since Glee came out, I have been semi-obsessed. But as a former choir member and a high school social pariah, the show hits close to home – really close to home. Still, I must keep an arm’s length from the show and set boundaries. I still consider myself a journalist, so I must remain objective – but that doesn’t mean I can’t infuse my adoration for the show in some of my writing assignments.

"John Barrowman, who's looking forward to returning as Capt. Jack in the upcoming U.S. version of Torchwood, has one request for Fox—not to tinker with his character's sexuality."
I, for one, would like it if Fox wouldn't tinker with the show at all. They are bound to ruin it. Just leave it in Britain where it belongs. But that is just *my* opinion.

Alexandria Ostrem credits a fake TV doctor with saving her life.
The bubbly 19-year-old from Bellevue, Wash., loves to dance, ride horses — and watch a lot of "House M.D.," FOX TV's hit drama centering on Dr. Gregory House, a brilliant physician known for solving complex cases.
Last March, without any warning, Ostrem began having trouble walking. Remembering a “House” episode featuring a patient with a similar symptom, Ostrem diagnosed herself with Guillain-Barre syndrome, a sometimes fatal autoimmune disorder that attacks the nerves, first causing tingling and often leading to total paralysis.Alexandria Ostrem credits a fake TV doctor with saving her life.

The FOX network are running re-runs of their popular shows with twitter commentaries at the bottom of the screen.
Only registered users with pre-screened tweets are allowed - and these will mostly be from those that worked on the shows. Oh yeah, and the shows are Fringe (as you probably guessed from the pic) and Glee.
I guess it's kinda like DVD/BluRay commentary but in visual wordiness instead.

Best known for creating the TV series Nip/Tuck, writer, director and producer Ryan Murphy turns his attention to high school in Glee, his upcoming comedy series for Fox. The series features a high school choir director and his ragtag group of singers.
In addition to his television work, Murphy has penned screenplays for Running With Scissors as well as Eat, Pray, Love, based on Elizabeth Gilbert's best-selling memoir.

It seems Jack Bauer just isn't happy saving the world from terrorists, he wants to save the planet from the rest of us as well, but not by killing people but by going carbon neutral.
Makers of the hit show, Fox TV, have announced that the programme is the first of its kind to become 'carbon neutral,' achieved mostly by reducing its main polluting element, fuel used on the set for generators, SFX and transport.
Don't worry diehard 24 fans, Bauer's not going to be catching criminals in some plug-in electric hybrid, he's still going to be engaging in his normal hi-octane activities, just offsetting his extra fuel consumption by purchasing carbon offsets from wind-power plants in India.
Speaking to the NYT, exec. producer Howard Gordon explained that if "we've needed a car chase, we've had a car chase... Our obligation is first and foremost to the fans. If we have budget cuts and need to save money, then we'll have fewer car crashes."
Think this is going to be more of a feature for TV shows in the future, or is it just an attempt by Fox to win over some of the eco-24 fans?It seems Jack Bauer just isn't happy saving the world from terrorists, he wants... more
