Fox aired 107 ads for teabaggers; 58 in final 2 days

From Media Matters (Via DailyKosTV):

From April 6 to April 15, Fox News aired at least 107 commercial promotions for their coverage of the April 15 tea parties. The majority of all the ads — 58 — ran on April 14 and 15.

Here’s a sampling of Fox ads promoting the tea bag parties:




Of the 107 ads, 58 were 10-second spots promoting a specific Fox News program that would be covering the events. The programs promoted in the 10-second spots were: Your World with Neil Cavuto, Glenn Beck, The O'Reilly Factor, Hannity, and On the Record with Greta Van Susteren. Of those five, only The O'Reilly Factor did not offer live coverage of the protests from one of the tea party sites. Forty-nine of the ads aired were 30-second spots that promoted Fox News' "fair and balanced network coverage -- live" of the tea parties.
