Call to Action

Want to hurt Fox News? Fox makes most of its money through carriage fees — that’s what they get from cable companies whether or not people even watch the channel. That’s right, if you have cable, you subsidize Fox News. But here’s the opportunity: It’s time for Fox News to renegotiate those carriage fees with the cable companies and if we get loud, we could hurt their bottom line.

If you have cable, you need to get in touch with them right away to let them know that you don’t want to subsidize Fox News anymore. You can find specific instructions and contact at No Fox Fee.
