  •  One thing that all of us can do (7+ / 0-)

    is instead of posting our outrage here, is to start posting to regional & local newspapers which have comments open.  

    One large metropolitan paper in upstate NY has sort of shut down this kind of thing, but on another it's like all of Limpbaugh's ditto heads and teabaggers are running the thing.   The viciousness and idiocy is in full cry.  And it's migraine headache stuff.

    Just as in Oregon, show the far right they are not in charge of everything and not the only ones concerned!  

    Take some of Sen Durbin's points and start posting them to web sites and LTE.  Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one doing so!  

    •  great idea. I hope it helps (0+ / 0-)

      but we cannot forget the larger problem.  The majority of voters watch TV and get all their news there, still.  They believe what they hear on  TV

      •  Yes - (0+ / 0-)

        got any ideas on trying to sway things in that medium?

        All the local stations are owned by large conglomerants - and take their marching orders and coverage slant from head-quarters.   News directors are regularly churned for 5 yr stays from around the country.  

        I don't think we have time, nor is it the time, to change the FCC rules before next week.
