5 things you can do to help make "Guckert" a household name
Advertisements [?]
Do your part to make sure that the Gannon/Guckert story -- and, most importantly, the Bush administration's massive propaganda effort -- gets the media attention it deserves:

1) Sign up to receive Keith Olbermann's daily newsletter -- this will show the "big bosses" at MSNBC that Keith's got a big following among the "hoi polloi" out here who care about the truth (when everybody else was too chicken, Olbermann was giving a lot of airtime to the Gannon/Guckert story)

(go down to second box "MSNBC Text Only newsletters", check 2nd box from the bottom, go to the bottom of the page and type your e-mail and then hit "submit" -- only takes a minute).

2) Send a quick e-mail to Dotty Lynch, who wrote a great piece at CBS.com called, "Rove-Gannon Connection". The more good feedback CBS gets, the more they'll run with the story: PoliticalPoints@cbsnews.com
Her article:

3) E-mail Frank Rich's NYT article -- it's the best piece yet on how the Gannon story is one piece in the Bush administration's giant propaganda effort. Rich's article being on top of the Time's "Most e-mailed list" will help get it the attention it deserves: E-mail to a friend (or even just yourself -- I think the site lets you do that).

(See box at right for e-mailing feature)

4) Send a quick e-mail to Anderson Cooper saying he did a great job on the Gannon interview and ask him to keep covering the story as well as other aspects of Bush's propaganda efforts (e.g., suggest he have Frank Rich on his show or someone you like from Air America).

5) Keep this post kicked so a lot of people do these things -- and maybe e-mail this to your friends so they do them, too.


Hundreds of people contacting the media can have an impact -- it's better to do something than nothing....
