OPERATION Can You Hear Us Now - Targets Big Media!!! Save the date - 10/17/09
Website - OperationCanYouHearUsNow.com ^ | September 15th, 2009 | Webmaster

Posted on 09/15/2009 7:18:27 AM PDT by Ibleedred

Obviously, the "main stream" media are hard of hearing and seeing. About 2 million mad-as-hell taxpayers assembling in Washington, D.C. for the largest-ever (most well-behaved ever, most respectful ever) protest did not make it onto their radar screens (or our TV screens).

They need our help. Maybe we cannot repeat an assembly of 2 million mad-as-hell taxpaying patriots in one place, but surely those who longed to go and couldn't would love to be a part of Operation "Can You Hear Us Now?" I'll bet for every one patriot who went to D.C. there are 10-20 more who wished they could have been there as well.

Well my friends, HAVE I GOT A PLAN FOR YOU...

Yesterday on FNC, Bernie Goldberg suggested that we quit referring to the legacy media as the “main-stream-media”. He commented that they are anything but “main-stream”. I heartily agree.

The folks that marched on DC and attend town-halls are “main-stream” and the legacy media refuses to give them any real acknowledgment, understates their numbers, and concentrates on fringe elements that they can exploit negatively.

Calling the LATimes, NYTimes, WashPost, CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN the MSM gives them an undeserved status and more deference than they warrant.

It’s about time ... target the alphabet media headquarters and the Communist News network and MSLSD as well. Be boisterous but non-violent. Make it a point to be seen and interviewed. However, if interviewed stay on topic ... the topics are ... media non-coverage and bias ... and then maybe limited government, taxes, and health care ... DO NOT discuss fringe topics especially ones that can be used to label the members of the movement “wackoos”. KEEP religion and Darwinism out of it. Remember ... besides attempting to drawing attention to the problems ...we are also demonstrating to gain support from the independents and blue dog dems. References to subjects like religion will turn them off.

Thanks for posting!! I intended to send email to Beck suggesting this...but, as this site proposes, we can do it on our own.

Unfortunately, the only newspaper in my area is disgracefully and obviously biased and is a great candidate for a ‘Can you hear me now’ rally.

I think there will be an explosion of “closet” conservatives on social network sites so dominated by the ould and brash left.

Keep up the priestly and noble fight, diamond family warriors!

This is a terrific idea.

Too bad they chose a Wed:
1. Most people that would participate in this are working on Wed.
2. A lot of people that would participate in this are in church Wed night.

What is the significance of Wednesday, Oct 14th?

I agree with Goldberg that the alphabet soup of network TV is no longer mainstream. However, rather than call them by euphemisms why not call what the are: Marxist demrat shill media.

We have allowed the left to call themselves anything but commies for years. To wit: Progressive, liberal, socialist and left. Time call a spade a spade.

Great idea....don’t forget...a good organizing tool here at Free Republic is your home State page. Easier to meet up with other freepers that way. Hopefully this information has made it to the local chapters of 9.12 project.

It would help if the name or acronym could be made to stick and that it achieve wide-spread usage. Something a little more catchy than drive-by media, which also understates agenda and only descibes competence, is needed. How about the LSM for liberal slanted media or liberal supporting media?

I saw 9/12 because I was there. If they need to hear from me locally and personally then I’ll be there. Again.

And to the NY Times, I know where you are and I’ll be there on October 14, 2009 but because you are always a beat behind I’ll send you an email after the event to remind you. You will hear from me soon.

When the MSM will not cover "our" rallies, another rally is not the answer. I suggest an alternative. There are thousands of political rallies going on around the country now, for various issues and candidates on the liberal and conservative sides.

What if, at every one of those rallies this year and the tens of thousands of them next year, patriots appear with Gadsden flags, the yellow, rattlesnake flags? Normal press coverage of those events would show our presence and our message, EBERY SINGLE TIME.

And, don't forget the outside shots at NBC's Today Show. In short, use THEIR events to promote OUR message. What say you?

It would only take 10 people with good signs. Although they would have security escort you off set. You would win in court, but they would win the viewing angle. Do this every day and they would stop having the live shots.

What do you mean “because you’re always a beat behind”?

In an online Q&A, New York Times Managing Editor Jill Abramson admitted the paper's coverage of the Van Jones controversy was "a beat behind" and put the blame on Labor Day, not pro-Obama bias. It's not the first Democratic scandal the paper has arrived late to.

NY Times ME Admits Paper's Van Jones Coverage 'A Beat Behind'

That’s what I mean. What do you mean?

“Too bad they chose a Wed:”
My first thought .. I quickly checked the calendar .. and WED is not a good day for us ‘main-stream folk- who work. Can we possibly set the date to a SATURDAY?

Also want to mention how happy we were to see all the YOUNG PEOPLE in Washington .. SAT would be good for HS and college students.
