11. Don't just sit there! Contact Wolfie and complain!

Here's the link to Wolfie:

Here's the link to Inside Politics:

And here's the link to CNN: /

It's not enough to simply complain here at DU. If things are going to change, WE HAVE TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. Please send at least one letter of complaint!

On edit: Here's what I sent to CNN main-link:
Wolf Blitzer's slant that most Catholics are conservative is offensive, to say the least. His exchange with Paul Begala was an embarassment on this holy day, and brought a new low in journalism, mixing reporting with opinion and misrepresentation of facts. Wolf Blitzer owes an apology, not just to Paul Begala, but to liberal Catholics throughout the world.

and here's what I sent to Wolfie:
Mr. Blitzer,
I am greatly disappointed in your exchange with Paul Begala during the coverage of Pope John Paul's funeral. Your assertion that most Catholics are conservative is not only erroneous, but also insulting to liberal Catholics around the world. The truth is that the Politics of Jesus are liberal, especially in care for the poor and needy, in opposing war, in confronting injustices in the world and holding those in power accountable to such atrocities. I think you owe an apology to Paul Begala, as well as to liberal Christians throughout the world.
