Pro-Kucinich Demonstration at ABC Monday!

Please join us at the offices of KATU to protest the decision to remove imbedded journalists from the Kucinich campaign, as well as the campaigns of Carol Moseley Braun and Al Sharpton
Outraged over ABC's decision to remove their embedded reporters from the campaigns of Kucinich, Moseley Braun, and Sharpton, the Kucinich Campaign in Portland is holding a short 30 minute demonstration at Portland ABC affiliate KATU Monday, December 15, from 5:00 PM to 5:30 PM. We will meet on the Sandy Blvd side of the KATU building (2153 NE Sandy Blvd), promptly at 5 and dispersing at 5:30.

We believe that ABC's decision robs voters of a chance to hear the whole story, and robs viable candidates of a chance to be heard. We at the Kucinich campaign feel that it is a voter's job to vote and a reporter's job to report. When these lines are blurred, fairness in reporting goes out the window.

Did you make the news? No? Not even the local news?

We can wave all the signs we want outside the corporate news studios and people will just look out the windows and then go back to work.

If you want to get coverage, go to the homes of the ABC CEOs and protest there. Keep a non-stop daily vigil there. Make their lives miserable. Bang pots and pans outside their homes. Lockdown to their car that they drive to work in. At the very least, then you are accomplishing *something* besides educating a few passers by. You are making the media CEOs have to realize that they can only go so far before blowback hits them at home.
