Fox News is always being boycotted, so that’s nothing new. But nonprofit group Check My Ads announced on Thursday its new campaign to target Fox News’ advertisers. Someone at NPR got the press release and decided to run with it, interviewing two of the women involved with the group.

NPR reports:

A nonprofit aiming to defund disinformation online that has taken money out of the pockets of several prominent far-right websites now has its sights set on its most formidable target yet: Fox News.

The group, Check My Ads, is hoping the success it has had in stripping advertising dollars from right-wing provocateurs including Steve Bannon, Glenn Beck and Dan Bongino will give it momentum as it attempts to confront a powerful media empire.

On Thursday, the outfit announced a new campaign directed at Fox’s website and its popular YouTube channel calling on the public to pressure online ad exchanges to stop doing business with Fox. It comes just as the House committee investigating the Capitol riots kicks off a series of hearings focused on violence that unfolded on Jan. 6.

And this is news why?

Where are media hall monitors Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy? Here is one outlet, NPR, publicizing an attack on another media outlet.

What’s NPR’s goal in promoting this effort? Never mind, we know.
