If It's Sunday "I Don't Want To Meet The Press"
Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 09:14 AM by Ivote
I am sick of their ignorance, incompetence & bigotry.
When they get back to real journalism I might reconsider my position on meeting them.
Until then, thank you DU, Buzzflash, Randi Rhodes, Mike Malloy, Guy James, Radio Left, Air America Radio, Keith Olberman and the foreign press that have the know-how and the stamina to stand up for a true democracy.
I know there are many other democratic & progressive personalities that try to get our word out & even though I have only named the ones that I listen to the most I want to take the time to thank everyone.
With a big :kick:

2. The British Poodle Is On Now
Says you can't compare what Bush did to what happened on 9/11, because on 9/11, "That was an attack that was unprovoked and killed three thousand innocent people on the streets of New York."

You know what, Tony? You're right. You can't compare that to what Bush did, because he killed over 97,000 more innocent people, unprovoked, on the streets of Baghdad, Mosul, Fallujah, etc. There's just no comparison anymore.

3. Amen! General Electric should not be trusted as a news source --
nor should the majority of our useless press.

4. I wish there was a way to...
let them all know how we feel...not individually, but as a large group...that we will NOT be watching their programs and that their sponsors will not be getting our viewership or our dollars until they can provide, absolutely UNBIASED, TRUTHFUL reporting and discussions.

I, too, have completely stopped watching even the PBS Saturday Morning talk shows as well as the Sunday Morning Right Wing Love Fests to which I erroneously THOUGHT that I was totally addicted.

7. Write them - most effective on paper, but email if nothing else
If they get enough, even they might put 2 and 2 together. Of course 4 still doesn't trump the desires of their corporate masters, so make sure to copy the letter to their sponsors.

8. Meet the PRESS? One Dude? One Non-Journalist?
Every time G.E.RUSSERT runs a clip of the old, real MTP, with a panel of actual reporters asking penetrating questions across the board, he comes off looking VERY small.
