    Posted: Aug 13 2014 at 10:15pm
As you all know, Ferguson is erupting, police is rolling out in the streets with tanks, spraying people with tear gas and rubber bullets, roughing people up, arresting protesters and reporters, restricting the media, etc. And the MAINSTREAM MEDIA seems to be DELIBERATELY NOT GIVING THIS STAND-OFF THE ATTENTION IT DESERVES! Let's blow up their e-mails and shame them into practicing true journalism!

Here is a draft letter you can use. Feel free to modify as you wish or send it as is.
Nex post below contains the names and e-mails of various media organizations, provided by Ms India. Please send! It will only take a few minutes! One e-mail, several addresses! Let's support our brothers and sisters in Ferguson! Let them know we DEMAND better coverage, unbiased coverage! Whether you read this now or in the morning, please take a few minutes of your time to do this. It doesn't cost anything!

Dear to whom it may concern,

The heavily militarized police department is continuing its assault on the citizens of Ferguson, MI. The media is not giving this situation the attention it deserves and we demand this changes immediately. There is a full on war being waged against citizens of the United States and yet the media outlets have continued to ignore their primary vocation; which is to provide unbiased and transparent investigative reports. Americans who are peacefully protesting are being threatened with violence, shot at with rubber bullets and unlawfully arrested. Reporters, who are exercising their constitutional right to provide freedom of press, are having their rights violated at this very moment. Please restore our faith in these historic institutions by providing non-stop coverage or updates with this current on-going situation.

Sincerely,
citizen of the United States of America
