Good morning, all. I'm still getting a lot of questions about whether or not #GrabYourWallet will be organizing a boycott of Fox advertisers over Chris Farrell's anti-Semitic comments on the Lou Dobbs' show. We will not this time and I wanted to share with you why.
The main reason is this kind of thing happens so often on Fox—from Hannity flogging debunked conspiracy theories to Ingraham attacking a minor who had just survived a mass shooting to now this—that I think it's clear a more proactive, strategic (vs reactive) approach is needed.
So we're working on building the resources and tools that will support that more proactive approach. Contrary to what most people think, boycotts are not just a list. In order to be effective, they have to be dynamic & closely monitored by human beings. That is work.
