3. Must work hard to get Obama elected....
Currently there is no counter to the right-wing media borg and they know it. Obama knows it too and has a plan but things will only change if we can get him into the WH (and "they" know it too).

In the meantime, we pressure our higher level Democrats to be more vocal and supportive and use what power we have in the form of emails and complaints to the media. Of course, it goes without saying that liberal blogs are extremely important right now in the spread of information and the power it has in the ability to communicate with a wide range of people.

If Obama is not elected, we risk losing the internet, as it will certainly become the next target of control by the neocons.
