Join Common Cause in Demanding that Cable Providers Say #NoFoxFee!
Rampant disinformation puts voters’ rights at risk, and viewers who expect their news channels to tell the truth are left misinformed. Unchecked election lies continue to harm our democracy.
Fox News’ business model is built on sowing distrust and division. While they make millions from spreading conspiracy theories, real people are alienated from family members and friends who fall for their election lies.
Cable providers have the chance to take a stand against Fox News’ deceptive practices. We must demand that our cable providers do not make Americans pay the price for corporate greed and election lies.
The Latest Intel from Researchers and Fox News Experts
Fox News is meeting with cable companies Charter/ Spectrum, Xfinity/Comcast, and Cox Communications right now to renegotiate their carriage fees. If they give in to Fox’s demands, Fox will continue to spread election lies on YOUR dime.
Fox Fee: the cost that cable providers pass on to their customers through increased cable bills to subsidize Fox News overcharging for access to their channels.
- Fox already overcharges by up to 3x the market rate for access to their channels. Cable providers pass the cost onto consumers to avoid losing profit.
- Fox News is demanding even more to cover their legal fees and loss in advertisers as a result of knowingly broadcasting election lies.
- Even if you do not watch or support Fox News your cable bill will increase!
