CONTACT THE MAJOR MEDIA OUTLETS AND CONGRESS ALL AT ONCE
It's not just individual members of Congress who need to hear from
us demanding an investigation of the Downing Street minutes, it is
also the so-called journalists who themselves have been
stonewalling this grave constitutional scandal. The White House
wasn't even going to send out anyone to accept the Conyers
petition until the presence of the progressive media shamed them
into it. And where there has been other coverage it has been
typified by contemptuous spin pieces resembling negative campaign
commercials for war as usual.
The only thing that is going to precipitate a REAL INVESTIGATION
of all the lies that misled us to the Iraq disaster is DIRECT
pressure now on not just Congress but also on the mainstream media
to do their duty. We have added functions to our action page on
the Downing Street minutes to send your personal message not just
to both your senators and your house member, but also at the same
time with one click to the key broadcast and print news outlets.
Even if you have already submitted something else, we MUST follow
up with this as well.
We're hitting the ombudsmen for the Washington Post and New York
Times, together with all the biggest national alphabet news
networks. You saw how Conyers had to fight for a basement closet
of a hearing room this last Thursday, and how they scheduled a
dozen votes in a desperate attempt to disrupt the proceedings.
Tell your members of Congress there is zero chance of them getting
re-elected unless they confront this crisis. Tell these news
outlets that if you can't get the REAL news from them you are
finding other sources for your news.
Please take action NOW on this and post and forward this message
everywhere you can to you know.
