  •  Having trouble with the main ABC number? (5+ / 0-)

    Then try this one - it's still working.  The following number gets you to the voice mail of Brian Ross, head of ABC News' Investigative Division.


    His voicemail greeting says "Hi, this is Brian Ross of ABC News. Please leave a message and I'll get back to you. Operators, we will accept all collect calls."

    I called and got right through, left my opinions on their "debate" for Mr. Ross to hear tomorrow morning.  

    I did not call collect.  But you could.

      •  My e-mail to Salinger (0+ / 0-)

        Dear Mr. Salinger,
        Last night's debate was an extreme disappointment to anyone (save perhaps Matt Drudge himself) who watched it, and embarrassment to the network that ran it.  I, for one, pledge not to watch any debate shown on ABC in the fall of 2008.  I will extend my boycott to 2012 unless ABC acknowledges the mistakes they made and takes measures that rectify them.

    •  Call LOCAL AFFILIATES too (2+ / 0-)

      From an Obama mailing list:

      Ask for the news room. You will speak to a real person. That's key.  Threaten to boycott local advertisers. Try to name at least one.  I am a former journalist, now stay-at-home mom. Believe me, hitting local markets means A LOT more than complaining to corporate.  They will have tons of e-mail and calls, no doubt. But it is at the local level that we make a difference. Pass it on!

        Threaten their money.

        Contact their sponsors, tell 'em you're boycotting their products, and tell 'em why. Inform ABC and Disney.

        These people could care less about journalism. They care about their money.

        May your entire existence be one sensuous, frolic-filled experience lived in defiance of care.

      •  Go after the weather people (0+ / 0-)

        They are most attuned to the locals, and read emails, especially for weather pictures. Send them pictures of signs saying "Charlie Gibson Stinks; Boycott ABC." That might help
