Iraq repeating itself with Iran

Iraq repeating itself with Iran
Dear MoveOn member,
"My station was intimidated by the administration and its foot soldiers at
FOX News."
That is CNN’s Christiane Amanpour explaining why the major television
networks failed to properly scrutinize the Bush administration’s claims
before the Iraq war.1 Instead, they joined FOX in broadcasting the Bush
administration’s pro-war talking points without a response.
This week, a YouTube video from film director Robert Greenwald reveals how
FOX is at it again-this time, beating the war drums against Iran. FOX uses
the same images and Bush talking points now as they did in 2003.
Can you watch the new YouTube video? Then, sign our open letter to major TV
news outlets asking them not to follow FOX down the road to war with Iran?
After thousands of Americans sign the open letter, it will be sent directly
to the TV news directors with a request for a response. Here’s an excerpt:
In 2003, FOX said "Al Qaeda is in Baghdad" and evidence of WMDs was
"irrefutable." In 2007, they suggest Iran "is forging ties with Al Qaeda"
and the evidence against Iran is "unequivocal."
FOX is a propaganda machine. But as a real news station, you have a sacred
responsibility to dig to the bottom of stories and report the truth to the
American people. Please don’t repeat the mistakes of the past by blindly
following FOX down the road to war.
Robert Greenwald points out, "We’ve already compiled over 4 hours of FOX
footage…the same images, sound effects, yelling and threatening that led
the U.S. to invade Iraq is happening right now to sell a war with Iran. They
are saying the exact same things!!"2
We cannot let other networks follow FOX’s lead. Can you watch the video and
sign the open letter to them today?
Thanks for all you do.

P.S. Can you support this people-powered FOX campaign? This year, MoveOn
helped stop FOX’s plans to host two Democratic presidential debates-and
we’re continually working to minimize FOX’s power. A donation of $10, $20,
or more would go a long way in helping us contine our ongoing campaign. You
can donate here-and thank you:
