DEMAND EQUAL TIME

I believe it's time to turn the focus from boycott to Equal Time.

The Sinclair "news piece" will run, period. Let's get out there at Monday's protests and give the media OUR view.

- The Liberal Media is a Myth.

- Sinclair is a mouthpiece for the Bush Administration.

- The "mainstream media" needs to do their job and give America the truth!

- When will other newsworthy docs be aired commercially free?

- Watch UNCOVERED: THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT IRAQ will be aired:

10/27 @ 10pm on Sundance!

This is our opportunity to spread the word about the failure of the mainstream media, and to put the truth about this administration in front of the people. We should focus the Sinclair Buzz away from the anti-Kerry doc and ONTO the plethora of anti-Bush films, and then challenege the media to run those AS EQUAL TIME!

The Swifboat ads garnered far more air time than was paid for, simply from play on news programs. The more we talk about the anti-Bush docs the more play they are likely to get.

Write your local editors, news station GM's and local papers, and demand Equal Time! Give them a list of films that could JUST AS EASILY qualify as "news".

Greenwald Films, for example!

The anti-Bush material is MUCH deeper than just Moore's film. MUCH!

GET TO WORK. WE HELPED MAKE THIS STORY

NOW WE NEED TO MAKE IT WORK FOR US!

EQUAL TIME

BOYCOTT SINCLAIR - A 3-STEP PLAN

See the plan up close @:
http://www.angelfire.com/blog2/boycottsinclair/index.htmlStep

Step 1: Protest - Show up at your local Sinclair station on Monday, 10/18/2004 at 6:00pm, per trooth's great site! If you can't, call them all day long.

Step 2: Sick-out - Call your local news, sports, or weather celeb and urge them to call in sick on 10/22/2004 to protest Sinclair's illegal action.

Step 3: Disinvest - During the week of 10/18/2004, check out your 401(k). You probably have a fund there that is an investor in Sinclair. Sell it and buy something else, if you can. Check the website for the list of funds.

Thanks for the great stuff!
