NPR’s campaign to nudge Fox News Channel out of the coveted ‘Helen Thomas seat’ in the WH briefing room

1 August 2010

Oh, dear. Major Garrett has made it known he is vying for the former chair of Helen Thomas and set the Progressives afire, evidently.

A friend of Common American Journal just put us on to the petition via Facebook. You have to read it to believe what the evil, evil people at Fox News are doing to the good and tax-payer funded National Public Radio. Heh.

Here’s the preamble to their petition:

Help NPR beat FOX News

We just found out that this action is even more urgent as the meeting has been moved up from Monday to Sunday.

In just a few days, the White House Correspondents Association will decide which news organization will be awarded the seat recently vacated by Helen Thomas. The news organizations most actively vying for the seat are FOX, NPR and Bloomberg News.

Tell the White House Correspondents Association: Give the best seat in the briefing room to NPR, not FOX!

FOX News is a right-wing propaganda outlet, not a legitimate news agency. In recent weeks the network has turned the volume up on its race-baiting political agenda. The media assault on Shirley Sherrod is just a latest in a series of racist and politically motivated attacks on targets like Van Jones, ACORN, and Eric Holder’s Department of Justice.

It’s bad enough that we have to fight the constant smear campaigns and appeals to racial paranoia from FOX and the right-wing media. We can’t let them have the best seat in the White House press briefing room and the legitimacy that it confers.

Demand that a representative of a legitimate news agency get Helen Thomas’ White House Briefing Room seat, not a right-wing shill from FOX…

You can read the whole thing at Credo Action if you really want to.

Credo action was once the group Working Assets, according to a quick search on the web. The site has lots of articles and petitions about wanting to control the country and your lives via a very Progressive agenda. Here’s their home page so you can see for yourselves. If you don’t know who Working Assets are, have a look. And here are some of the causes they support.

Meanwhile, are we the only ones who think this petition sounds petulant and childish? GTFU, NPR and Credo action…
