You need to get this going on ‘twitter’ .... that’s how the Rush ‘boycott’ got so much attention, it went viral on twitter. If that happens, the NBC folks will be aware of it. I don’t ‘twitter’ or I’d work on it. Maybe you could get something going through Michelle Malkins ‘twichy’ site (?) .... http://twitchy.com/
BTTT. I’d love to have a list of companies I can contact.
Let’s get this ball rolling.....
I put BOYCOTT NBC on my twitter account, explaining that we could only choose one....others need to do the same
I haven’t watched the network news programs for twenty years.
They’re a complete waste of time.
The news whores don’t make sense.
The Democrats don’t make sense.
The Republicans on them supposedly spouting my point of view, generally don’t make sense.
Why bother watching that tripe?
Why boycott? Just post or send out via FReepmail a list of advertisers whom FReepers can contact and express their displeasure at NBC without necessarily threatening to boycott the product.
Just a simple,
Dear Mr. CEO
I have removed access to NBC from my TV, so I won't be able to take advantage of the information on your wonderful product that is advertised there. Please direct me to another network on which you are advertising your product.
Former NBC viewer.
The lame stream media was a “factor” in Obama’s squeak?
Yeah, like the iceberg was a “factor” for the Titanic.
Starve the MSM beast!
I practice this but on a broad scale.
Don’t watch NBC, ABS, CBS for anything whatsoever other
than a pro or college football game I want to see, nothing else.
NO MSNBC, Chrissy Mathews, Maddow, Schultz, Maher, Steffy, etc. Just click on through them to something I want to watch.
Refuse to reward them points with viewing.
Time Mag, Newsweek, canceled them years ago and never looked back.
It’s the old Michael Moore routine, “you have to buy a ticket to my movie”. Yeah right, never have, never will,
even on free cable.
but no...the replican fool usually walks right into the trap and says ' thank you sir! May I have another?'
We haven’t watched NBC News or any other network news in years, so I don’t know that this will be successful unless you can cut off the nursing home TV sets.
Hurrah.. I’m with you. Almost every TV/Sat-Cable box has a Delete Channel feature. Out with ABC,CBS,CNN,MSNBC et all..
You have to target the advertisers to make it work. That’s when NBC will blink.
Remember, Comcast is the parent company of NBC and MSNBC.
If you give money each month to Comcast, you are giving money to NBC.
You know what you have to do.
Big city news outlets are notoriously liberal...never reporting on the problems with Obama's economy...we see that in every Miami TV station, the newspaper, and even the RADIO station that carries Rush Limbaugh--the "news" presented on the local level on that radio station is disgustingly liberal.
I am not saying "local" news has to be CONSERVATIVE, but it should be BALANCED, and it isn't.
There is a "blog" by one of the news reporters on the local ABC station in Miami that reeks of liberalism.
Even the FOX affiliate in Miami is in the Obama Kool Aid Camp.
So let's not forget to take the locals to task...they might even be MORE responsive than networks--because they KNOW they're hearing from local readers/listeners/viewers.
Advertise it as a way to keep up with what's going on in the world. Stream tech info, investment info, weather, local news, whatever the user wants. And do it all with bits leaning right of center. Make it so people just can't live without it.
Get aggressive with pushing our message out and shut out the liberal one. Profess to being "mainstream"/unbiased, but be right-of-center (like the "news" media of today say they're unbiased but continue to spout DNC talking points).
We can also ask Hannity/Fox, Rush, et al, to stop telling us what outrageous or slanted thing Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, and other nuts have said. Totally ignore them, don’t play clips, don’t quote them, never mention their hating names. About the only attention they get is from saying hateful things, then sitting back while we blow up in outrage. If a tree falls in a forest...etc.If they know we don’t hear them, and we won’t if the talkers don’t play clips, then it won’t be so fun to poke at us.
Boycott the MSM’s SPONSORS!! ....
I will keep watching MSNBC because I want ammo in my WAR with the left and I want to know what MY enemy is saying, thinking and planning.
We are at war...know your enemy folks.
The DLEMM - Dominant Liberal Establishment Mass Media - is not mainstream. They're leftists and leftists are not mainstream. People need to stop referring to them as if they are. Collectively, they're enemies of the republic because they actively seek its demise. That might be mainstream in Peking and inside the Kremlin but it sure as hell isn't here.
The best solution is to simply to drop cable and TV completely. I did that Thursday and explained to Comcast exactly why.
This screws both the corrupt news media but also Hollywood. And it saved me about $80.00 per month.
Are you up for starting a ping list on this?
If we are truly serious about this, we will need organization.
