I wanted to make you aware of the latest video in the "Fox Attacks!" series -- "Fox Attacks: Iran" -- and urge you to join me in signing an open letter to the major cable and network news outlets.
The letter, which I have included below, asks the networks to take their journalistic responsibilities seriously and avoid making the same mistakes that were made in the lead-up to the war in Iraq.
"My station was intimidated by the administration and its foot soldiers at FOX News."
That is CNN's Christiane Amanpour explaining why the major television networks failed to accurately inform the public in the lead-up to the Iraq war, choosing instead to follow FOX's lead.
Now, FOX is beating the drums for war with Iran. Robert Greenwald's short film, "FOX Attacks: Iran", outlines the evidence from the station's own broadcasts, comparing their reporting before the Iraq war with what they are saying now about Iran.
You have a sacred responsibility to the American people to provide accurate and reliable information so we can best make the decisions which affect our lives. We urge you to accurately and thoroughly report all sides of this important story.
Please do not blindly follow FOX down the road to another war.
Please, take a moment to watch the video and take action. These influential cable and network news outlets need to know we are watching their next steps and will be here to make sure their reporting on Iran is accurate and thorough.
Thank you for your continued support.
