  •  We need a bigger RRT, (7+ / 0-)

    it would seem. A lot of what blogs already do IS coordinated effort to respond to media.

    The problem is that "media" is owned by a handful of corporations who monopolize 99% of America's available airwaves. Who's gonna hear about it when their "task" is "called on"? Not from them!

     

    REPEAL the Telecomm Act & REVIEW this decision. NO journalist should be fired because their boss can't have the truth told.

    •  I was watching Piers Morgan (one of the worst (9+ / 0-)

      interviewer, ever) last night. Twice he said that the teabaggers were a "respected, growing" force. Latest polling does not support this. A RRT would be have mass twitter/facebook postings.

      Obama/Biden 2012!

      •  Exactly my point (0+ / 0-)

        This is a fucking outright LIE:

        the teabaggers were a "respected, growing" force.

        Calling it out on blogs is, clearly, not enough.  Massive twitter/facebook posts are surely helpful, but they are not enough either. We need to get literal and get up-close to people in RL and make them listen.

        How do you make someone listen to Other People in Real Life, when they've been conditioned for several generations now to only listen to TV?
