    I need some help here guys. Fox New has been allowed to preach hate and spread misinformation for far too long, and as Robert Kennedy has stated, Fox has split the country in a way not seen since the civil war. This petition may go nowhere, but at the very least it will provoke a response from our administration.

    If 25,000 people can sign a petition to build a death star, we should be able to get much more than that for something meaningful.

    We have freedom of speech in this country; so I think even if I do not like Fox; you won't get very far with a petition. They can say the same about MSNBC and of course start a petition against that station. The only thing we can do is to convince people to tune onto an other channel like MSNBC.
    Again it is the people who decide if they want to be educated or not ; sorry to say it all boils down to EDUCATION in this country which is lacking, especially on how this world and all its people act and why. Education with blinders on; just focussing on the narrow daily life in certain states does not help; a broad worldwide view has to be educated to get out of a narrow scope of looking at the world with blinders on.

    Dutch you say it all boils down to EDUCATION in this country and I say it all boils down to MONEY in this country. Fox claims to be the highest rated cable news which translates into more money. Maybe more EDUCATION could change things but right now it is MONEY that runs things: Viewers equal ratings which equal money. A petition versus money? No contest we know who wins.

    "jamesn" I guess you are right about the money it always plays a role, however if people would get a better education they would not fall for the nonsense like a Limbaugh launches, because then hopefully they think first before they absorb all the Fox nonsense. Sorry to say mostly uneducated people watch Fox; likely rough gun toting dudes.

    Money: The winner and still champion. You say However if people would get a better education... Question which would most people choose? Education or money? The answer is money.
