Subject: John McCain... with a LOT of help from his "friends"

Dear activists, friends, and colleagues,

Since the traditional media has obsessively focused on McCain's alleged liaison with Vicki Iseman and smearing The NY Times, we felt compelled to take action. Jason, Phillip, and Dallas raced to the editing room, turned off the phones, locked the door, and focused on the real issue about McCain's lobbyist ties.

It's not a pretty picture. But here's our chance to get the truth out there for everyone to see.

With inspiration from the insightful blogs of FireDogLake's Jane Hamsher, Christy Hardin Smith, and Marcy Wheeler, we found footage and music to show the story not being told.

Watch the video!

John McCain has 59 lobbyists raising money for his campaign, and yet he said "I'm the only one the special interests don't give any money to."

Sign the petition demanding McCain return the millions of dollars raised by lobbyists.

We use humor, we use pop culture, we use McCain's insistent use of the word "friends!" We hope you will send it along to your friends, foes, and media outlets.

P.S. Jonathan has vowed to stay in the editing room for as long as it takes to create Fox Attacks Obama, part 2. Showing the merciless and obscene non-stop attacks from Murdoch and Co.

Want to send a message to Murdoch? Send in $100 to help us make the video, and we'll include your name and message right in the video itself.

The first installment of Fox Attacks Obama got over 1 million views! Let's continue to get our message across.
