GET DOWN WITH CABLE NEWS

a quick and easy way to chisel at Cable News
I am disgusted by the way that The Cable News Industry treats the Public as a homogenous mass, as though the people are not their Market, but their Subjects. In an ensemble as tight as the finest symphony orchestra, these shameless "Journalists", spout whatever they are handed without any questions (or answers). We The People are supposed to have the power in this country, and ultimately, we do have that power precisely BECAUSE we are NOT homogenous. I have compiled a list of every cable news show, show host, and comment email address that I could find. I urge everyone to join me in showering the True Homogenous entity, this pathetic excuse for a Media, with raw evidence of our diversity and unwillingness (I hope) to settle for the garbage that is now somehow passing for news. By copying and pasting this list into your, To: , field in the email form, you can instantly express any thought or feeling you would like to every figurehead in Cable News. Please forward this to any persons who might want to contribute a message (why not send it to EVERYONE), and maybe even post this list on any message boards you might know of.
