    Tell TV Execs: Stop Shutting Out Progressives, People of Color:

    I'm sick of seeing old white men and women spewing old, white commentary. It's time to act.

    Sunday's bobblehead extravaganzas have felt irrelevant to me for awhile now. Every week I get up and see another Sunday with old conservative hosts hanging onto the edge of their seats while old conservative white men and women yammer on about their special and privileged point of view.

    Shrugging off those statistics is not an option. Those shows still depend on viewers and ratings to survive. In the hope that perhaps networks might actually care about having viewers, I've decided action is in order to pressure them for more balanced and diverse viewpoints, including progressives.

    I started up a petition here. If you agree with this, please sign and share it to put networks on notice that we're interested in more diversity and less conformity.

      as the organ of ownership to speak truth against the unjust power of the people.

      They're corporations, owned by corporations, sponsored by corporations, and our most precious statement of rights liberates them from checks or balances in pursuing their interests.

      We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"
