Successful mobilization of the masses by organizations such as Moveon.org has proved two things; 1. Congress does not represent its constituency; and 2. Protests and petitions do not work!!!
During these past 5 years, the American people have spoken out time and time again only to be completely ignored by those who are supposed to represent them in this republic that we so inaccurately call a democracy. It is painfully obvious that the people who are in office use their power for their own personal purposes. They represent only their sponsors, the corporations and other money-based centers of influence that finance their careers. As a result, the collective voices of the people are irrelevant and have no impact, no matter how loud or organized they are. Currently, the corporate media and the easily manipulated voting machines can keep politicians in power so that they need no longer fear an Election Day revolt from the people whom they ignore and undermine on a daily basis.
We are not going to use this space to list the surreal state of media affairs as it exists today. This web site has more than 350 pages of reference material if you need a refresher course. Suffice it to say that it has become frightening to watch the level of deception taking place on out TV sets each day. The amount of information that has been withheld from or misrepresented to the public is beyond criminal at this point. Our democracy, our environment, our economy and our humanity can not survive if the people of this nation continue to be drawn into the fictional world created by the corporate media.
The time has come to use the only legal and non-lethal tool left available to the public. We must counter the weapons of the power elite that has hijacked our democracy and taken control of the nation. Believe it our not, that tool is MONEY! In this case, however, we are not asking you to spend your money; we are asking you to withhold it!
WE MUST STOP FUNDING THE ENEMY - AND THE ENEMY IS OUR CORPORATE MEDIA!
TvNewsLIES is calling for an all out, 100% boycott of corporate news. We are asking our readers to do the following:
Cancel all subscriptions to the corporately owned newspapers & magazines that have been complicit in deceiving the public about the many crimes committed by the Bush administration and about the many outrageous actions taken by our Congress to undermine our democracy, our environment and our civil rights while they put forth an agenda that is designed to hand ownership of our nation to a few wealthy individuals and corporations.
Call your cable company and cancel the following news channels: all CNN networks (CNN Headline News and CNN International), all FOX networks that air news including your local FOX affiliate. (It is all right to keep the entertainment based channels. Trash TV never resulted in fascism!), and all network and local stations that purport to air news, including ABC, NBC (including MSNBC), & CBS.
NOTE: You can have your cable company block any channel you request. You need not cancel the rest of your service. If there are massive cancellations our voices will be heard.
Where will you get your information if you comply with our request? You can replace the cherry picked news that is spoon fed to you by the corporate media with the news harvesters on the Internet who collect important news items from around the globe and compile them in one place so that you can get a real sense of what is going on.
Suggested sites for real news: (we apologize to the many other good sites not mentioned here ) : Whatreallyhappened.com, Buzzflash.com, Rense.com, Informationclearinghouse.com, uruknet.com, and our TvNewsLIES.org's news portal.
What else must you do? Search the Internet for organizations or websites that list the corporate sponsors of the news networks. Make every attempt to boycott goods and services produced by these companies. Seek out progressive, socially and environmentally conscious businesses and direct your business to them.
It is time to act! Stop supporting our enemies. Start supporting the people who have dedicated their lives to making this world a better place. If it inconveniences you, so be it. Make the sacrifice. If it costs you an extra dollar to subscribe to an independent newspaper, make the sacrifice and help us to regain our nation.
We are proud of the fact that TvNewsLIES is one of the many individuals and groups who have sacrificed a great deal to fight for this nation by acting as its troops of truth. Support the troops of truth! Support us! Stop supporting your enemies!
IT'S TIME TO STOP TALKING AND TO START DOING SOMETHING. STOP COMPLAINING AND ASKING WHAT YOU CAN DO! TVNL JUST TOLD YOU HOW YOU CAN HELP. ACT NOW TO HELP FIGHT THE LIES AND DECEPTIONS OF THE CORPORATE MEDIA! STOP PAYING THE MEDIA TO BRAINWASH THIS NATION!
HELP RECLAIM THE NATION BY WITHHOLDING YOUR MONEY FROM THOSE WHO DO US HARM! IT IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WEAPON WE HAVE!
WE CANNOT CONTINUE TO BATTLE THE BEAST WHILE WE FINANCE ITS VERY EXISTENCE!
