“Fox News has engaged in anti-Obama political activism by aggressively promoting the ‘tea party’ protests, which the network has described as primarily a response to Obama’s fiscal policies. Fox News has repeatedly aired graphics describing the protests as ‘FNC tax day tea parties’ and has run advertisements promoting them,” said Eric Burns, president of the District-based group, in a letter to Fox News anchorman Chris Wallace.

“We trust that you are concerned about the effect of these actions on your network’s reputation and that of everyone associated with it and urge you to denounce them as inappropriate for a news organization,” Mr. Burns said.
