D.C. Chapter and Accuracy in Media to Hold RatherGate Protest at CBS News D.C. Bureau 9/21/04
D.C. Chapter ^ | Friday, September 17, 2004 | Kristinn

Posted on 09/17/2004 2:04:33 PM PDT by kristinn

The D.C. Chapter of Free Republic invites all FReepers and lurkers in good standing to join us outside the Washington, D.C. bureau of CBS News as we stand with our friends Accuracy in Media to call for CBS to come cleIY @ over the forged documents story.

We will be urging the firing of CBS News President Andrew Heyward, anchor Dan Rather and producer Mary Mapes for their gross irresponsibility in foisting the forged Texas Air National Guard documents on the American people.

Accuracy in Media and the D.C. Chapter held a similar demonstration last year at the New York Times' D.C. bureau in the wake of the Jayson Blair scandal where we called for the firing of Howell Raines.

When: Tuesday, September 21, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Where: The sidewalk in front of CBS News, 2020 M Street, NW, Washington, D.C.

Bring: Signs bearing messages calling for the firing of Heyward, Rather and Mapes, as well as signs pointing out CBS' record of outrageously biased reporting.

This is a permitted demonstration.

As always, the D.C. Chapter's rules for protesting will be in effect. Briefly, they are: No violence, no profanity, no racism, no provocations, obey the law and treat all law enforcement officers with respect.

Please note: This is a non-political protest. Do not bring or wear any material advocating for or against any political candidate.

LOL!

Other possibilities...

    "IT'S THE COVER-UP, DAN"

    "TWISTING SLOWLY, SLOWLY IN THE WIND."

    "DAN, MARY, ANDREW -- THE - RATHERGATE - PLUMBERS"

    "FAKE BUT ACCURATE" - DAN'S LIMITED MODIFIED HANGOUT

Rather, above all others, should appreciate such slogans.

Well, you have a point, OHelix.

But the idea is to get the media there to film it, get sound bites from protestors, and show it for 6 or 7 seconds on the national network news. If you don't give the media a show, they won't come.

Yeah... And I know I'm peeing on the parade, some... sorry... But I felt it was something to consider. We want the media there, but we don't want to look like a bunch of clowns, either. I expect most, if not all, of you have a better perception of what's "too much" verses what's "not too much" than I do. I just wanted to make sure you didn't forget to use that superior perception. :o)

Well, you're right. We should always consider where the limits should be. And crossing too far over the line is not a good idea. The protests I've participated in, and some that I've organized, have featured costumes, colors, pantomime, props, slogans, jingles, chants, etc. The media guys love this kind of thing and so do their viewers. It grabs attention so that your message can be seen and your sound bite heard. This is the age of special effects and short attention spans. It's not like it was when people would stand for 4 hours to hear Lincoln debate Douglas.

This may sound odd, but I would trust your judgement over my own in this regard. It sounds like you know what you're doing. Anything I have to add is purely hypothetical and not based on experience. :o)

Great! A PJ Party already.

'Dan, somebody's having a party out front. Take a look!'
'What are they wearing?'
'Pajamas!'
'Thank God it's not neckties.'

Actually, I think the PJ idea and the Sandy Burglar bit that Kristinn did a short while ago, are clever and funny.

But I think the masks and costumes were overly used in the past and are fodder for the left to make us look like loonies, whether or not the protestors actually get on camera and thus, the point you raise is a good one.
