Operation Fox Hunt

In a video statement carried recently by several official channels maintained by members of the hacker activist group “Anonymous,” a digitally generated voice explains that the online collective has decided to take down the Fox News website on Nov. 5th of this year.


“Fox News, your time has come,” it concludes. “Operation Fox Hunt. November 5th. May the hunt begin.”

  Raw Story

Warning AND a huge magnet to attract viewers to Fox. What’s to be unhappy about? Fox will get a lot of mileage out of this.

The date, Nov. 5, is significant for its dramatic placement in the film and comic book “V for Vendetta,” about a freedom-loving terrorist who destroys an authoritarian government that’s come to power in the U.K. “Remember, remember the 5th of November,” is his saying, hearkening back to the “Gunpowder plot” of 1604, in which the terrorist Guy Fawkes was captured and executed for his attempt to blow up Parliament.

So now you know.

The fifth of November is significant for me, too. The Lone Star Motorcycle Rally is scheduled for that weekend here on the island, and my street corner is a high traffic area (with a light - think idling, revving, roaring off). There will be no sleep for me.

....but hey, do what you want....you will anyway.
