Help NPR beat FOX News

Dear Friend,

On Sunday, 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.

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.

I just told the White House Correspondents Association to give the best
seat in the briefing room to NPR, not FOX. I hope you will, too.

Have a look and take action at the link below.
