I'm guessing that this will be another stupid LOIC drive.
As it so happens, they aren't. Not like they're the only ones, of course (cf. John Stossel & his campaign of lies against organic food). Not that I agree with simply muzzling them either - that sort of ingenuity would be much better devoted to providing fact-based rebuttals.
Rebutting a lie makes people more likely to believe a lie, not less. The best antidote is, really, to make people confront the lie itself. It's one thing to tell a homophobe that homosexuality is fine. It's completely another when someone they consider a good friend confronts them about their betrayal.
How is Fox suppressing them though? Fox News is a media outlet, not a government agency. Honestly by Fox slandering them they are giving the Occupy Wall Street protesters media coverage. Bad press is still press after all.
It still takes several years for the population to tone out the media's message about a group or cause. Can OWS grow for six more years?
Fun Note.. the owner of Fox news owns something like 35 to 40% of the media outlets in NYC. Rupert Murdoch has an agenda and backs his corportate buddies quite well. You'll never see a bad thing about his buddies on Fox and considering most of the culprits behind the mortgage crisis are his buddies what do you expect?
News Corp, Fox and the rest of Murdoch's media outlets in New York were bought and paid for by his special interest dollars to congress. He's repeatedly gotten 'deals' with the FCC by congressional mandate.
Being fair to Fox for probably the first time on this site, you can say the same for Disney (ABC) and General Electric/Comcast (NBC). The closest thing to an independent outlet is CBS. NBC's more center-right leaning simply reflects their owners being more Reagan Republican than the modern incarnation of the GOP.
They also have a genuine interest in creating the impression of a division.
