Dear ColorOfChange.org member,
Fox News has a horrible record of attacking Black people, leaders, and cultural institutions. But at this very moment, the Congressional Black Caucus Institute is negotiating to partner with Fox to host presidential debates prior to the 2008 elections.
For the CBC Institute to partner with an organization like Fox News—given its hostility to Black political interests—would be shameful. You can help prevent them from making this serious mistake by calling on them to drop negotiations with Fox.
