I'll add one, if I may:

Write, call and/or email your Congressperson, and ask them to craft legislation requiring that paid TV services (cable, Dish, DirecTV), offer a la carte programming.

No one, and I mean NO ONE, should have to pay for CNN, CNN/HN, MSNBC, Current TV, etc., simply to get the handful of channels they actually want.

EXCELLENT idea. Years ago when FOX News came out, our cable didn’t carry it. After they lied to me for more than 2 years that “yes we’re getting it within 2 months” I finally CANCELLED them and went with some satelite dish cable. Then about 3 years AFTER that, our cable company finally GOT FOX NEWS! I took them back.

But when I first asked they said they didn’t have “room for FOX” and I told them to take CNN OFF my cable - they actually laughed at me. I was not amused. Dumped them.

Cable TV will probably go the way of buggy whips but not soon enough. Cell phone and online access is the way of the future, right?
