I received a great April fools from the folks at True Majority today:
Close Race Ends with TV Talk Show the Winner
Despite our intentions to spotlight and encourage the positive in politics, we can fall into the trap of being negative and defensive. Too often, we forget that great things are happening even when it seems that the planet is falling apart. That’s why we’re launching our annual Award for Excellence in Broadcasting and News Media.
There are some wonderful publications and news organizations that share our hope for a more sustainable and compassionate world.
But in the end, only one news outlet was left standing—the only news show truly committed to “fair and balanced” reporting. Our winner is the Fox News Network’s O’Reilly Factor, hosted by Bill O’Reilly, for his in-depth coverage on the lack of consensus as to whether global warming is real. For more information on Mr. O’Reilly’s excellent reporting, go to www.fair.org/ohreally.html.
Because Bill O’Reilly presents the news so evenly, we don’t need another radio network like Air America, the new progressive source for talk and news. We’re urging all TrueMajority members to boycott the new network because Fox News provides the only voice our nation needs.
If instead you’d like to hear a fresh voice, check out Air America, especially Al Franken’s new program The O’Franken Factor, which will air weekdays at noon beginning March 31. Other hosts include Marc Maron, Chuck D, Laura Flanders, Randi Rhodes, Janeane Garofalo, and others.
