Latinas to boycott FOX News due to biased reporting on Sheriff Joe Arpaio Maricopa County race and minimizing independent votersby Dee Dee Garcia Blase on Jul. 23, 2012, under 2012 Arizona Elections, female-led political movement, Independent voter centrist moderate swing vote, independent voter open primary election, joe arpaio wastes millions of tax payer dollars, Mike Stauffer for Sheriff to Replace Joe Arpaio, Rise of Mexican-American / Chicano leaders as political realignment shapes in the southwest, Women Voters
The National Tequila Party Movement (Latina-led counter movement to the Tea Party movement) is boycotting FOX News. Once again FOX News is in the back pocket and openly supporting their poster child, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. In an article recently published on Foxnews.com, states:
FOX couldn’t have made their support of Arpaio any clearer. By talking up a Democratic candidate for sheriff in a largely conservative county with a political party that isn’t even running a candidate for county attorney is highly suspicious and calculated.
FOX News knows full well Penzone doesn’t stand a chance against Arpaio and is welcoming him with open arms and all prior to his even going through the Democratic Party primary election on August 28, 2012. Clearly FOX News appears to underestimate the 2nd largest Party in the State of Arizona via independent registered votersnd largest Party in the State of Arizona via independent registered voters. This is why independent voters have surged, and Democratic registered voters dropped by approximately 52,000 according to the Arizona Republic (Arizona’s largest newspaper source). Penzone, the newly converted and courted Democrat who comes complete with a Domestic Violence incident and record in his background, a lack of will to complete his college education and a TV star for Phoenix Police, would be just the candidate to promote on behalf of Joe. We certainly can’t believe the “Fair and Balanced” act would include welcoming such a man as Penzone into their fold.
FOX also continues their biased approach by seeking comments from and on behalf of two of the four candidates. FOX News knows as does every educated politico, that the Independent in this race has a significant opportunity to win the sheriffs race this November. It is also very unwise to dismiss the Democratic primary where two Democratic candidates, John Rowan and Penzone must face off to earn the spot on the November ballot.
