14. I think we need to Challenge the Media whenever they use mis-information..
Edited on Mon Jul-14-08 01:27 PM by kevinmc
I use Media Matter's and the contacts they have on the bottom of the articles that Media Matters posts during he day. I do it the lazy way ... I just cut and paste the whole article in the email I send to who Media Matters has as the Contact. I think if these people had more emails complaining about them, it might help in slowing down the amount of mis-information they put out.
