Disney owns ABC; ABC is broadcasting Jennings' venom. Ask them to tell their Bush-hater to put a sock in it. ---------------- CALL YOUR LOCAL ABC AFFILIATE, TOO( I tripped on my first post and said "Clinton hater Jennings"; actually, he loves Bubba - - it's Bush he hates.

They have at least 1 American's opinion on the matter. This is a time of American crisis. The last thing we need is an 'unbiased' journalist using his position and this catestrophy to erode our committment by attacking our Commander in Chief. Maybe ABC should re-assign Jennings to covering Afghanistan for the next couple of months.

Called the number and asked if they didn't think we had sufferred enough that they had to inflict that hateful Jennings on us too. The woman was most annoyed with me and quite rude.....said she had no control over it but did pass me on to a voicemail to Levin.........I left him a message highlighting his shame in allowing Jennings on the air.

I just called.

I told a frazzled man who answered the phone that not only will I never buy another disney product, nor watch any ABC affiliate, but I would also encourage every person I knew for the rest of my life to do the same. In addition, I told him I would make it my dying effort to write letters to all of ABC's advertisers telling them I will never buy their products if I see them advertised on ABC. I then told him, I just want you to pass my thought along to your superiors, and tell them this is because of what I heard Peter Jennings say about our President.

He very respectfully "yes sirred" me the whole way...I don't think my call was the first, obviously, and I hope it isn't the last.

But if you call, remember: NO CUSS WORDS.

I have them on the phone right now. They put me on hold. Now I am instructed to leave a 30 second message.......... I have told ABC that Jennings is irredeemable and is a biased left-wing sycophant for left wing proppganda. His attacks on my President offend me and millions of other Americans. I will never watch ABC nor patronize Disney as long as Jennings is your employee. Please sent me a written acknowledgement of this message.

Please, everyone, call them.--and tell them something that I forgot to---"It's Fox News from now on, baby!"

I called my local ABC affiliate yesterday and politely told the news director that Peter Jennings is a sniveling punk, and suggested that they run local news instead of him.

What did Jennings say? I do not and will not watch him (Especially since I get Fox). Please quote him so I can understand exactly what I am opposing (not to mention motivate me to call). Thank you fellow freepers!

Jennings has rarely been more blatant in displaying his bias than during these last few days. His interview with that vile creature, the female Palestinian representative, who all but said America deserved this, so infuriated me I almost threw my phone into the TV.

Not only call (which I did) but send letters to Disney executives. Enormous piles of letters are every bit as effective as calls, even more so since they take up physical space.

Michael Eisner, chairman and CEO

Robert Iger, Pres, COO, Director

Roy Disney, Vice Chairman

500 South Buena Vista Street, Burbank, CA 91521

With any luck Canada won't want the SOB back. I'm sure the Palestinians would welcome him, though.

Rush has been talking about this.

Jennings implied that Bush was a coward by his comment that it was taking Bush a long time to address the people and seemed to be hiding. He also said that some Presidents were very good at reassuring the American people and giving them confidence, and that some were not--clearly suggesting Bush was among the latter.

Called.

Call (818) 460-7477 to go directly to the comment line recorder.

In 10 minutes (after 1:00 p.m. Pacific), the operator said that I should get a live person at that number.

...when the recording starts, press "4" to get to the recording. Speak fast... the "30 seconds" they give you is less than that.

I didn't catch his anti-Bush statements, since I turned the station after his insensitive remarks about the crumbling WTC. While showing footage of the second tower falling, Jennings tactlessly said it looked like a "peeling banana." Then he said, "Oh, but there's people in there." It made me sick.

This morning, just before Bush spoke to the NY mayor and gov., Jennings said many people consider Bush an "illegitimate" president.

Jennings is a foreigner. His venom against the President is undermining our war effort, creating additional danger to the President during the crisis. He should be deported.

I was channel-surfing on our national 911 day.

Fox was not coming in clear on the TV I was using, so I was having to hit CBS, NBC, ABC.

I heard Mr. Jenning make a remark with a disgusted tone that they had to break away from some "Political" commentary.

It was Karen Hughes, Communications Director of the White House providing a strong summary of the various actions of Executive Branches.

She provided in a concise manner, without bias or emotion, answers for some of my questions.

Mr. Jennings, having labeled her as some political hack, tried to discount the importance of our hearing from her, without his ability to spin the truth.

We know Karen Hughes to be a Truth-Teller. I would much rather have any of the Truth-Tellers of the Bush Administration answering questions then some biased talking head who is more concerned about his political slant getting into the act.

Incredible. Jennings has been sitting their talking to ABC "correspondent" Stephanopoulos - - a Clinton political hack - - giving this hack all kinds of deference - - - - but he sniffs at Karen Hughes as a "political operative." I believe her title is Communications Director. Why should a communications director be communicating on behalf of the administration?

Andrea Mitchell did the same thing Tuesday on MSNBC. She was badmouthing our President for not being as "good" with words as Clinton was.

Here's a copy of the email I sent to MSNBC:

I cannot believe your network aired Andrea Mitchell badmouthing Pres. Bush today of all days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She said Clinton could have soothed the nation better because he has a better way with words. How dare she use this situation to slap Pres. Bush in the face while he's trying to handle this horrible attack on our nation!!!! This is a time for all Americans to pull together.......guess you folks at MSNBC don't want to be instrumental in helping us do that!

You should fire her at the least, and more appropriately chastise her on the air unless you all agree with her statements.

Enraged former viewer,

You know, I appreciate your sentiments, but why give Disney the idea that a fading network news anchor like Jennings is being watched enough for anybody to care?

Xena's Mom's best friend Karen gave me two shares of Disney stock for high-school graduation; thanks to splits, I now own 24.

I'm on the phone with Disney Investor Relations right now. I shall ask them how to dump my shares as quickly as possible solely and utterly because of Jennings.

After a three-minute canned-opera hold, the nice Shareholder Services lady told me I'll have to write a letter to get new certificates, and then my local broker can dump it. I'll take probably a 40% long-term capital loss on the stock, but I'm happy and proud to do it.

I tried calling this number...the lady keeps forwarding the phone to ABC NEWS. Evidently,DISNEY doesn't really care about how it affects their stock.

I say everyone sell as much of Disney as you can now.

I have to agree with this. I didn't hear Jennings, because I haven't watched him for a long time. And any network that considers Stephanopoulos a "correspondent" is way outside my tolerance level.
If we all just ignore the network, that should eventually cure the problem. They need ratings to get advertisers, and without advertisers, they go broke.
I might suggest that anyone who actually watches Jennings should contact the advertisers. They might pay attention.

Complaining to Disney about Jennings is roughly equivalent to making a complaint to bin Laden because his people committed their acts of terror.

Disney is not angry at Jennings. They want him to bad-mouth Bush. They are even worse than he is.

"call your LOCAL ABC AFFILIATE, too!!!

Indeed!

When advertising does resume, collect your facts, and let the advertisers of your LOCAL stations know how you feel, as they are more likely to agree with you than the smarmy CEO's of the advertisers on the network feed.

I don't think they give a rat's behind what we think as long as the $$$ keeps rolling in. That's the secret, do something that hurts their pocketbook and they "might" pay attention.

I received a great picture, do you know where I can find the directions on how to post it?

Call your local ABC station as well. Make the person on the phone personally associated with the disreputable ABC net work . If you lie with dogs you get fleas etc.

Bore in ,don't hangup be nice, but make the affiliate know that Jennings in not acceptable to America.
