It used to be when you didn't like a certain TV network, you changed the channel.
But that was before the Internet Age.
Today, just about anyone can wage a campaign against just about anything. But when the organization claims to have 70,000 members who are advocates for the interests of Black Americans, the political landscape will never be the same.
The online campaign against the major news network is just the tip of the iceberg.
Last week, the ColorofChange.org politely nudged the Congressional Black Caucus on its plan to partner with Fox News to host presidential debates. CBC Institute is a poltiical education and leadership non-profit organization. ColorofChange.org is a political action group that was organized in response to the government's failure to provide aid to stranded Hurricane Katrina victims who were mostly poor and black.
James Rucker, Executive Director, of ColorofChange sent a letter to Congressional Black Caucus Members advising them that "Fox has a documented history of airing inaccurate, slanted reporting and political smears; advancing deeply problematic framing around race issues; and launching baseless attacks on Black political leaders."
"A partnership with Fox risks sullying the Caucus' reputation as "the conscience of Congress" and an advocate for racial equality and justice," Rucker said.
So far, the CBC hasn't responded.
