(International Business Times) At first glance it reads like a headline out of the Onion, but according to some members of the Tea Party, the Fox News Channel is just not conservative enough.
A faction of the Tea Party movement known as the Fire Ants held its second boycott of the cable network over the weekend. The “Turn Right” boycott, which took place Thursday through Sunday, was organized via a blog called Benghazi-Truth, whose author claims that Fox News has “essentially abandoned” its conservative viewers and shifted its reporting too far to the left.
“The message [is] loud and clear to FOX,” the blog says of the boycott. “‘Stop screwing around and start serving your core audience, or your core audience will take their business elsewhere.’”
