Ask C-SPAN to Cover Downing Street Minutes Events - NOMINATE PLEASE
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 12:17 PM by helderheid
Ask C-SPAN to Cover Downing Street Minutes Events
Saturday, July 23rd over 300 events will take place across the U.S.

Dear PDA Activists,

PDA and our allies in the www.AfterDowningStreet.org coalition and in Congress have organized over 300 events around the country on Saturday, July 23rd, marking the three-year anniversary of the infamous Downing Street Minutes. We need you to ask C-Span to cover one or more of these events, and to cover them on C-Span 1 or 2 (C-Span 3 has fewer viewers). For information on the larger events, click here: http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/?q=node/863

You can Email C-Span by using the above 'TAKE ACTION' link.

You can phone C-Span at 202-737-3220.

You can fax them at 202-737-6226.

To be most effective, be polite and concise.

You've done this for us before. You can do it again!

11. Made the call
thanks for the heads-up. First time I ever called C-Span. Now I've got the number programmed in my cell phone speed dial.

The guy who answered the phone knew instantly what I was calling about after a couple words "i'd like to recommend cspan cover the downing street minutes events". he said they've been getting hundreds of calls. he asked where i got the information. i said i saw it on a blog. he asked me to tell others that more calls won't help get it covered (i say, call anyway!). i think he indicated that they will likely try to tape it, and then play it for the first time about a week later.

37. Good idea.
Trash the biggest sponsor of C-Span on your homepage, then ask them to PLEASE cover an event.
I thought it was concluded that the cable industry was not responsible for the e-mail glitch.
