FOX News has always been the propaganda arm of the Republican Party, willing to twist facts and even lie to promote the Republican agenda.
But the election of President Obama in 2008 pushed FOX News into outright hate-mongering and incitement of violence, which is intolerable in a democracy. Here are some examples:
6/30/09 Glenn Beck agreed with guest who urged bin Laden to attack U.S. with nuclear weapons: "The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States. Because it's going to take a grassroots, bottom-up pressure, because these politicians prize their office, prize the praise of the media and the Europeans. Only -- it's an absurd situation. Again, only Osama can execute an attack which will force Americans to demand that their government protect them effectively, consistently, and with as much violence as necessary."
7/25/09 Neil Cavuto and guest said health care reform will impose universal euthanasia like "Soylent Green."
7/28/09 Glenn Beck called President Obama a racist: "The President has exposed himself as a guy ... over and over and over again ... who has a deep-seated hatred for white people ... or the white culture... This man is a racist."
8/6/09 Glenn Beck "joked" about giving Speaker Pelosi a glass of wine with poison.

Dear FOX News Advertiser,
I am writing to inform you that I will not purchase your products as long as you advertise on FOX News.
FOX News does not broadcast news, it broadcasts Republican propaganda, lies, hatred, and incitement to violence - including violence against American citizens, Democratic leaders, and President Obama.
The worst offenders are Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity, whose shows are broadcast in prime time to large audiences.
Your advertising dollars are helping FOX News poison the minds of Americans and destroy our democracy.
I urge you to immediately stop advertising on FOX News.
