Media Companies: Don’t Invest in a Regime that Murders Journalists

BREAKING: All media sponsors but Fox Business have pulled out. Fox must follow suit!

To: Fox Business News

According to news reports, the Saudi government may have murdered Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi.

We urge you to take the following immediate actions:

  1. End your sponsorship and participation in Saudi Arabia's Future Investment Initiative conference, following the lead of the New York Times, CNBC, and Bloomberg News.

  1. Stand up for freedom of speech in Saudi Arabia and call on the Saudi monarchy to reveal what happened to Khashoggi and where he or his body currently is.

  1. Take a stand against the Saudi government's brutal bombardment of thousands of civilians in Yemen.

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a U.S. resident, was just apparently killed on the eve of his wedding— and news reports suggest that the Saudi government was responsible. If that’s true, this is the latest in a long line of actions by the Saudi government cracking down on dissidents and murdering civilians. But U.S. news outlets have consistently propped up the image of Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman as a reformer, giving him a free pass to continue executing Saudi activists, bombing Yemeni children in school buses, and using starvation as weapon of war in Yemen.

The New York Times, CNBC, and Bloomberg News have already pulled out of the Saudi government’s upcoming high-powered investment conference in the wake of Jamal Khashoggi’s apparent murder. But other U.S. media companies are still planning to attend, giving a seal of approval to bin Salman’s repressive regime. Add your name to demand #JusticeforJamal and insist U.S. media companies stop enabling Saudi government repression.

This page is being updated as outlets withdraw their sponsorship of the Future Investment Initiative conference. Citation for U.S. media sponsorship withdrawals: CNBC, Bloomberg, CNN and Financial Times pull out on October 12th.
