A Modest Proposal
Since U.S. mainstream media (newspapers, news magazines, TV news) won't cover the election fraud story, how about if thousands (tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands?) of subscribers were to cancel their subscriptions citing this as the reason? Of course, boycott TV networks as well. If others think this is a good idea, spread the word and we'll take our money out of their pockets.

7. I don't think they're asking you to boycott
television. Just the news channels.
