    Hello Thom,

    I'm a long-time, regular listener. Appreciating your ability to grasp complex ideas, I thought I'd forward you a link to an article on DailyKos that you might find fascinating. It's about not only how the Oligarchs infiltrate(d) our government, economy, and media - it's also about how they maintain their control/manipulation of it all. Granted, a lot of folks suspected something along these lines, but this is the first hard evidence I've seen documenting it.  Please, PLEASE - review the article & bring this evidence into the sunshine!

      attention.  I admit I spend so much time researching and then days trying to put it all together so others can make sense out of what we've dug up, that I have to confess I am not good about forwarding my work.

      Months back I wrote a particularly informative piece on ALEC, connecting all the dots and links to the Koch's money and influence.  I sent it out to everyone from Rachel to AG Holder (due to the prison industry issues included), the President, Keith, MSNBC producers, and a myriad assortment of others.  The only response I got were requests for donations from the President and canned responses my Senator and state Rep.  That was my second attempt and after that I concentrated on DK Blogging and continued research.  Maybe I should have become the squeaky wheel until they at least told me to lose their email addresses.

      Thanks for taking up our slack.  Grateful - immensely.

        worth a shot. I know they get a bazillion e-mails every day, but maybe we'll get lucky & this one will catch their eye.  

        The sad part is, I've got an e-mail address for a CBS producer (long story), but I sincerely doubt he'd be allowed to even be interested in this, since he's on trad-media payroll.  

        Maybe I'll try & call in to Thom's show tomorrow as he does a live hour on Fridays just for the Chicago area on WCPT radio.  Who knows if I'll get through, but I won't know unless I try, eh?  

        No, I will NOT sit down or shut up...but, thanks for askin'!

      •  Oh, and about responses from those (0+ / 0-)

        you've forwarded this info to - that sounds about par for the course.  But, every now and then you get through to the right person at the right time.  That's how I ended up with the e-mail addy of a CBS News producer - and in a piece on older workers that aired on a national broadcast.  That story started when I answered an online question from a local newspaper and it snowballed from there.  So, keep on digging and and sharing.  Hopefully, it will find its way into the conversation.

        No, I will NOT sit down or shut up...but, thanks for askin'!
