What She Said
Since it's already a few posts down, let me highlight and endorse what Avedon said below :
I actually meant to include this in my previous post, and judging from comments it's just what some of you want - a media contact list. So let me encourage you to tell the media how outrageous you find it that they give so much coverage to ludicrous right-wing talking points and then don't cover the response from the Democratic leadership - or from the majority of Americans.
Even better than FAIR's media contact list is this section of the Democratic party's site :
All you have to do is enter a zip code and it will bring up a form for you to contact multiple local and national media outlets at the same time. This is an especially useful resource if you wanted to, let's say, contact the Arizona Daily Star and tell them that John McCain is a fraud whose "toughness" only comes out when it's politically safe to do so or The Greenville News to tell the people of South Carolina that their Senator wants to destroy some of our most basic rights as Americans. With the public finally starting to wake up to the moral cowardice of the Republican majority, I can think of quite a few places that could use a friendly reminder that their representatives are part of the problem.
So take advantage of the Democratic media contact page, folks. It's a damn good resource that people don't use nearly as often as they should. Then again, it might be more popular if the site's webmaster hadn't (a) hidden the form under the site's non-descriptive "Action" tab and (b) failed to include a redirect from the forms old URL (democrats.org/media) to its new one (democrats.org/page/speakout/letterstoeditors). Just in case it gets shuffled around again, you might want to bookmark this one.
