Yesterday, we released news of the Department of Defense restricting access to Fox News at military installations. Our source, like most news reporting services will not be unveiled. But, we will say this, in general: an active duty, military member who has been stationed abroad.
At every installation (we were told), particularly those overseas, this news outlet was always available. However, now, it is considered, restricted material. Periodically, the military does reviews and restricts material they feel is inappropriate for military personnel morale. We are extremely happy Fox made the list. Thank you, for your support and inquiries. We were able to obtain a copy of the letter sent to the Department of Defense.
Our military community is a close knit family, they value their privacy. We ask that you do too. We thank them for their service to this nation and for their, continous, commitment, to keeping peace which goes beyond fighting in wars.
A Copy of The Letter to the DOD
As military families we are disturbed by your choice to advertise on the Fox News website, and, to air the Fox TV Network at military installations, worldwide. The approach taken by this media outlet, with shows showcasing, all supporting views. And, their choice of attack methods, in regards to our Commander and Chief, the 44th President of the United States, referencing race.
It started with the magic Negroe song, then email circulars, the most disturbing being, the one with the watermelon patch. Calling our first lady names, such as, angry black woman, and, only, God knows what other ugly names she has been called. We cringe when we think about it. In addition to, referring to theas the on and on. Escalating to the point of, dropping all respect, and calling the President of the United States of America, a racist. And, without shame, openly promoting the teabagger and birther movements; which are ongoing, long running, assault campaigns.
We would like to see the United States become more united, and, American people working together towards the betterment of all citizens. Continously exposing us to these divisive, racially motivated campaigns, only serve to divide the military community and our families, when we rely on each other, while, stationed overseas.
This line of assault simply must change, along with your sponsorship.
With the racial rhetoric and the consistent assaults on our Commander and Chief, how long do you think, we, the military community, will continue to support each other, when we see the department of defense sponsoring shows and campaigns that promote hate? Please, pull your advertising and support from these types of shows, websites and media outlets, therefore, stopping all patronage.
-Military Families, United
