Today I will be drafting letters to the Sunday Talk Show hosts.

The premise of my message will be:  If Sarah Palin does not show up on "_______________" (insert Meet the Press, This Week with George Stepshanopolus, etc.) within a few short weeks time, and your newscasters do not call the McCain campaign staff out on this, you will have become an utter failure of your creed to report news in a timely and professional manner.  Every American should be exposed to the views of the candidates trying to capture the highest political offices in this country.  Never before, had somebody so "unknowable" been selected as a Vice Presidential selection.  I don't think it is fair to let the candidates marketing teams to present who she is.

We're watching to see what happens.

Meet the Press - Linky

This Week with George Stephanopolus - Place your cursor here

Fox News Sunday - Why Bother

There are a bunch of other ones out there, but those news shows don't make it easy to contact them.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
