It seems the so called Fair and Balanced Fox Network, that some consider to be the beacon of conservatism, might not be that conservative after all.
In a report from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) — the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industry — the NSSF learned that the FOX network had banned advertisements featuring firearms and ammunition from its coverage of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) events.
In a letter to the FOX network, the NSSF appealed to FOX asking them to lift the ban on firearms advertisements. The network responded with a letter confirming its anti-gun / anti-hunting policy, and also admitted that the policy extended to all of its National and Cable Broadcasts.
NSSF in a statement said:
FOX’s decision to ban advertisements for lawful products owned by more than 80 million Americans is nothing more than corporate gun control – and it is certainly not “fair and balanced.” They asked for the public to contact the FOX Network and to “Make sure your voice is heard.”
