CNN coverage sucks again-can you help? They are showing the

freaking super delegates included in their vote totals and the chyron states Bernie has to win 75% of all the remaining pledged delegates to win the nomination.

I just let them have it with a brief comment sent to this link:

Can you take a minute to send a comment to them?

1. If you really want to get the media's attention, send a hard copy letter

General media contact information, including emails, addresses, and phone numbers:
http://fair.org/take-action-now/media-activism-kit/media-contact-list/

Other than voting, donating to Bernie, and talking to people you know about Bernie's policy positions and history, THE SINGLE GREATEST THING you can do to help his campaign is to WRITE A HARD COPY LETTER to the media protesting their Bernie Blackout and wall to wall Trump coverage! Mention that you will be contacting and boycotting their advertisers if they continue the Bernie blackout and Trump "infomercials". I know people who work in newsrooms, and I am told that one hard copy letter has the weight of 100 emails to a news director. This is, they have added, a huge reason why the media skews to the Right; right wingers mail in letters frequently, the Left never does, so the perception is that only the right wing is dissatisfied with their "reporting". Let us change that notion TODAY!

Please borrow time from posting here and on Facebook TODAY to write letters to FIVE of the organizations listed below. When finished, post the text of your letter and who you contacted to this thread.

ABC News: 147 Columbus Ave. New York, NY 10023

CBS News: 524 W. 57 St. New York, NY 10019

NBC News: 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, N.Y. 10112

MSNBC: One MSNBC Plaza, Secaucus, NJ 07094

CNN: One CNN Center, Atlanta, GA, 30303

New York Times: 620 8th Ave. New York, NY 10018

The Washington Post: 1301 K Street NW, Washington DC 20071

National Public Radio: 1111 N. Capitol St, NE, Washington DC, DC 20002

Associated Press: 450 West 33rd St. New York, NY 10001 <<<<<<< RESPONSIBLE FOR CALLING AZ WITH ONLY 2% OF THE VOTE IN, WHEN THEY KNEW THERE WAS MASSIVE ELECTION FRAUD TAKING PLACE!!

(212) 621-1500

4. I hope you make this an OP.

Jane Sanders asked us to write every time we see Bernie marginalized.

Great post, great info, thank you!

6. Thank you for your input and I appreciate what you are saying but

you did come off as my bossy big sister. Did you give me a homework assignment? I am in my 60's, have been voting since 1972 (McGovern.) I have been a state volunteer coordinator and have canvassed, phone banked, etc, etc for years. I am almost maxed out on donating to Bernie and I am retired.

But to keep the peace I wrote this and will send it off to all the listed organizations. What I had hoped to accomplish today was something a little more immediate because they not only still have the same chyron up, their talking heads keep repeating the same BS.

Now can I please go outside and play?
Tomorrow is my mother in law's 89th BD and I need to get some stuff done.




Director of News/Politics,

I am disgusted by your ‘coverage’ of the Democratic Primaries/Caucuses. Why do you never discuss Bernie Sanders’ policy positions and his history as a Mayor, member of the House of Representatives and Senator? Why do you freely donate millions of dollars’ worth of free air time to Donald Trump? I will be contacting and boycotting your advertisers if you continue the Bernie blackout and incessant Trump TV.

It appears your best efforts to drown out the millions of voices supporting Senator Sanders is failing. Is it because you are concerned if he wins he will pose a threat to your seemingly unlimited advertising dollars? It has been interesting to watch your ‘journalists’ in various contortions trying mightily to spin this election in Hillary Clinton’s favor. Why do you add the super delegates to your vote totals when they have not yet voted? Your bias is showing and it is a sad reflection on the pathetic state of what passes for journalists and journalism in 2016.

My best friend and college roommate from over 45 years ago is a tenured Professor of Journalism at a large university in Texas. This is what she tells her students, “Read and watch everything you can that is available in the media for election coverage and vow that you will NOT follow their memes. Write and report the opposite of what they are saying because they have lost all integrity.”

Best regards,

3. I sent them feedback about the delegate counts

AND the election fraud and theft, AND the lack of exit polling, AND their lopsided coverage of Bernie vs. Drumpf. I told them that if they weren't willing to do their jobs WE will be the media, and they'll end up like hate radio, with a $20 billion dollar bankruptcy!
