Lincoln Project Targets FOX News At Upfront: Brands Aren’t Safe
May 15, 2023 – Today, The Lincoln Project is informing advertisers attending the FOX Upfront that brands should treat the network like a deadly plague. Despite firing Tucker Carlson, FOX News programming is still a cesspool of racism, misogyny, and anti-democratic sentiment, driving extremist views into American homes hour after disgusting hour.
The Lincoln Project will geofence the Manhattan Center with a digital ad you can watch here, will have mobile billboards circulating the venue, and will run anti-FOX content on its social channels all day long – tagging corporations who are currently advertising on the network.
Since Carlson’s firing the ratings have cratered and Murdoch needs to keep chasing MAGA viewers. Advertisers need to know that the next host will likely be worse than Carlson, doubling down on the crazy to recapture lost viewers to destroy NEWSMAX as a competitor. Obsession with testicle tanning will seem mild by comparison.
“Watching FOX News all day will burn out your retinas and eardrums,” said Reed Galen, The Lincoln Project co-founder. “Jesse Waters, Brian Kilmeade, Sean Hannity, are not serious people. They are nothing more than mouthpieces in Murdoch’s right-wing propaganda machine. The real truth is that Rupert hasn’t changed his mind about the direction of the company. Brands need to ask themselves if they want to be associated with an even more extremist version of Fox News.”
The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy.
