The message has to be VERY clear, and precise.WHY are we protesting the L.A. Times?Beacuse they are hiding a videotape that could hurt Obama.EVERYTHING else is secondary, and dilutes our focus.
Our message was apparently NOT as "clear and precise" as it SHOULD have been, at the early stages of our FIRST FReep. :(
As I posted on a PREVIOUS thread:
To: Steve Van DoornI did not see the cameras from Fox at our FReep, but they could have been there. They might have used some of the early videos posted on YouTube.Put on FOXNews Channel.
The Fox & Friends Show is covering the L.A. Times protest (yesterday), but any sign that is explicitly about Freeing the Khalidi tape FOX has blurred the title for.
I could only read 1/20 of the signs and they all said things like If you dont report, how can we decide? and 2008, The Year Journalism Died, etc.
None of the signs written about freeing the tape were allowed to be read by TV audience.
In any event, they must have shown footage from the FIRST FReep -- at 10 am, where the signs WERE a little "off target" -- so it might not necessarily be any nefarious editing from FoxNEWS.
We had less press coverage at the SECOND FReep -- at 3 pm, but MANY more "on target" signs.
At least those "new and improved" signs got into the video Jeffers did -- for popmodal.
LGF reader cblesz went to the [first] protest at the LA Times building this morning, and reports that there were about 150 people there...
...and that LA Times staffers were watching from the windows, smirking and laughing at the protesters.
I’m going to have to file a complaint.
Could someone run over to FM.org and snag the cartoon I made and post here, pls? I don’t know how, and after 18 hrs today, my thinkolater is fried.
