Fox News Being Challenged by Its Viewers via New Site 'Echo It'

Echo It is a unique new platform that allows users to make their thoughts and concerns know to businesses of all shapes and sizes. Recently, the platform reported Fox News has been the subject of a tidal wave of echoes all focused on the news site's lack of coverage of Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, which a growing number of Echo It users view as unfair.

Newark, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/28/2015 -- It's no secret that the major news channels are more prone to cover Presidential candidates based on how much controversy they cause, rather than how well the candidates address important issues. Judging by the information coming from the exciting new consumer response platform Echo It, news watchers may have had enough of this questionable policy. Echo It has recently reported an ever growing number of consumer response "echoes" targeting Fox News specifically, accusing the popular conservative news station of completely ignoring Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, despite the public's interest in following his positions.

"We're providing a great way for news stations, companies and beyond to stay plugged in to what consumers are saying and how they are feeling," commented a spokesperson from Echo It. "We would encourage Fox News to address these concerns from what seems to be a significant part of the news-watching audience."

According to Echo It, creating echoes is simple, easy and quick. Tagging the company that's addressed is also something anyone can manage, and all signs are pointing towards an increasing number of organizations paying attention to what their echoes are saying and adjusting their policies accordingly. If Fox News will join that list remains to be seen.

Some users of Echo It have even taken the step to call for a "Take Action" initiative against Fox News, which allows supporters of a loud (popular) echo to organize a boycott of the company being addressed if they continue to ignore the platforms' user messages.

Amie Rogers recently echoed to Fox News, in an example of overall user opinion on the subject, "Your silence on Ben Carson is deafening. I'm a Fox News Watcher, and I'm really getting discouraged with your so called "fair and balanced" coverage. Even when you mention the candidates, you leave him out. (…) It's not right, and it is not fair and balanced. The way it looks, you are all Trump supporters!"
