    The local paper and the local TV are totally in bed with the local GOP, it's a money thing, we're lucky local newscasters can pronounce the word "Democrat".

    We have to fight for every line of coverage or they'd ignore us completly, it's bad!

    never doubt that a small commited group of citizens can change the world, because it's the only thing that ever has

      and get the media from Pittsburgh involved. KDKA, Post-Gazette etc. Send an email to Maddy Ross (managing editor at P-G) and give her a good reason to get some reporters out to Johnstown. Pittsburgh is less than 100 miles away and there is a national story happening in Johnstown. Maddy Ross got her undergrad education just north of Johnstown (IUP) and may have a soft spot in her heart for the area.

      In any case, Maddy has good sense and should be able to see a national story when it's in her back yard. A gentle "heads up" to her just might get the ball rolling. Give it a try.
