    NEW YORK - Liberal activists are stepping up their campaign against Fox News Channel by pressuring advertisers not to patronize the network.
    ifMoveOn.org, the Campaign for America's Future and liberal blogs like DailyKos.com are asking thousands of supporters to monitor who is advertising on the network. Once a database is gathered, an organized phone-calling campaign will begin, said Jim Gilliam, vice president of media strategy for Brave New Films, a company that has made anti-Fox videos.

    So much for tolerance.

    Conservative evangelicals, for instance, do the same thing on some of the issues that they care about.

    I guess it depends on whose ox is being gored as to whether one approves or disapproves of the practice.

    Conservative evangelicals go after whole companies.

    I don't think it is a badge of courage for conservative evangelicals to not be tolerant of the views of others.

    Tolerant doesn't mean tolerant of everything. Fox News falls well within those things that should not be tolerated. CNN perhaps manages to just escape it. Maybe.

    ==There is no such thing as tolerance in the minds of these ACLU, Moveon.org, liberal nuts. If anyone dares to disagree with them that person is labeled hateful, bigoted, ignorant, and a campaign is started to shut them down. These people don't believe in America, they don't believe in the constitution, and they don't believe in their own weak minded ideas. The reason they want to shutup everyone who disagrees with them is very simple: they know that their positions/ideas are weak and cannot standup under serious questioning/examination. That is why they try to discredit and shutup anywho who challenges their small minded ideas. From abortion, to extreme animal rights, to global warming, to universal healthcare, to homosexual "rights". All of their ideas are built upon a weak foundation of sand. In order to defend themselves they must try to discredit and shutdown anyone who challenges them. It is that simple.

    ==In some circles that is certainly true. That is why I stay away from political activism. I will blast away at liberals, pretend conservatives, and real conservatives who go astray. Generally I don't like it when someone tries to silence the free-speech of another person. Their ideas maybe ignorant, stupid, simple, and foolish but in America they still have a right to make their positions known. As Americans we have the same right to ignore them, refute them, or battle with them. I tend to go with the first two.:laugh:

    Disney is by far the most famous.

    Sounds descriptive of the current Bush administration, especially the way that President Bush went after those of us who disagree with his amnesty plan for illegal aliens.

    But we do all know that they are spouting a bunch of hogwash on the tolerance issues -- there is tolerance and there is getting their agenda out. Getting there agenda out takes priority over tolerence :thumbs:

    This is the biggest problem with supporting tolerence for the sake of tolerance. At some point you will have to be intolerant which is a big problem.

    Not only Disney, but remember the wrongheaded campaign against P&G over their man in the moon logo? People were lying, saying it was related to devil worship.

    This is an equal opportunity arena agenda -- to hurt people in the pocket book.

    AND it's free publicity for Fox. I doubt they are much worried.

    That was throw out at not only P&G, but also Liz Claibourne -- Came up in a staff meeting at school. I said hogwash (word is growing on me this evening). We actually had women stand up and say they'd never buy Liz again. I got up and went and found it on Snopes, made copies, and brought it back to the meeting to hand out.

    When dealing with Disney ( and I say the boycott was dumb) they were after the issue not to destroy the whole company.

    So if the boycott eventually threatened the survivability of Disney then you think that the boycotters would have stopped the boycott? If so, I disagree with your assessment.

    Hey, Timmy, your side of these debates is not lily white and your opponents are not pitch black.

    Indeed, but I'm sure that's also true in this case. No one's after the company, just the issue of the lack of credibility in Fox News.
