This liberal organization has declared war on Fox News.
Indeed, Shannon Coulter, the co-founder of #GrabYourWallet campaign has recently decided to add Fox News to her long list of businesses that her fellow liberal quacks should boycott.
Who makes the list?
Any business that supports the Trump family. She started this last year so “informed” citizens would know where to NOT put their money.
And, just this last Friday, she informed her Twitter followers that Fox will be added to this list–in the most classy way possible, of course.
Sounds like a real gem. Someone you’d want to take home to mom.
But what made Coulter give the cold shoulder?
According to The Blaze, the #GrabYourWallet campaign responded after:
[T]he online publishing side of news organization ran a story on Friday linking one of the women accusing Roy Moore of sexual misconduct to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
On Friday, FoxNews.com published a story linking a Roy Moore accuser to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
One of the women accusing Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual impropriety reportedly worked as a sign language interpreter for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, a new report claims. https://t.co/y0uoKrHx4j

From the story:
Deborah Wesson Gibson, who told The Washington Post that she briefly dated Moore when she was 17 and he was 34, founded the language interpreting company, Signs of Excellence, and has worked for a number of democratic campaigns, according to Alabama Local News.
The company’s Facebook page shows Gibson working for and posing with several Democrats at political rallies including 2016 presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, former Vice President Joe Biden, former Sen. Patrick Murphy, D-Fla., and Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla.
However, the story was posted without a byline. Bylines inform readers who the author of a story is. Posting a story without a byline typically means the publication doesn’t want to put an author’s name on it because they know it could receive blowback.
So, Fox News is being punished because there is no byline?
How about the multiple times The New York Times did not have an appropriate source? A well-referenced article? Is that going to make your list?
And, why isn’t anyone seeking out the veracity of the claim?
Why do liberals need to attack news organizations simply because they’ve read a story they do not like?
In numerous other tweets, Coulter continued (because, you know, her first tweet just used the ‘f’ word repeatedly and never really said anything):
The biggest mistake advertisers can make right now is to assume people’s actions against Fox News are partisan. It doesn’t have a thing to do with politics. We are not boycotting the advertisers of National Review or The Weekly Standard. This is about decency and respect. Today Fox News sent a very clear signal it intends to use its incredibly large and powerful platform to create narratives & angles designed to undermine the women speaking out against Roy Moore. No.
Three hours ago, I would have parsed the differences between the various Fox shows and hosts and who said what on which one. No more. It’s a morally bankrupt propaganda machine for the worst, most damaging parts of our culture. Despite overwhelming evidence in the culture at large that this is anything but a partisan issue, Fox News is callously attempting to make it one. No. This is the line. Fox News crossed it.
Disagree, Coulter. Wholly and entirely.
Fox News is not using their platform to discredit all women who have accused Roy Moore. No, they have simply highlighted a connection between one woman and the Hillary Clinton campaign.
That is investigative journalism.
I know the facts are oftentimes bothersome for liberal news outlets.
They’d rather just use passion, emotion, irrationality, and a lot of ‘f’ words.
