Sample letter / email , to the Director of Marketing, Owner or CEO at each advertiser:
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am an American with a strong desire to see a full, open debate about the policies that are destroying our nation. Last night, I watched the Republican Debate in Florida, in an effort to be an informed and responsible voter.
What I saw disturbed me very much. At the opening, Erin Burnett was surrounded by Ron Paul supporters with signs and chanting. All she could discuss was Romney, Gingrich and Santorum. Then while those 3 rambled on at will, the ONLY candidate called for "time" was Dr. Paul. The deliberate way Romney and Gingrich take jabs to keep control of the conversation needed called for "time." It is supposed to be a debate, not a cat fight. When Dr. Paul was due a rebuttal, the moderator just "moved on." The very design of the debate where the most popular candidate gets more time is absurd and a soft form of election tampering.
I tallied the number of times the candidates were allowed to speak:
Paul - 15
Gingrich - 25
Romney - 26
The people want to hear what the candidates have to say, and then choose the one they feel will be the best President. This nonsense of the media anointing "likely winners" and then fulfilling their own prophecy by showering them with media attention must stop.
I am appalled that you would support making such a mockery of our election process with your dollars. Please know that I will not support you with my dollars. You may be able to corrupt our elections, but I can still vote with my money."
Sign it and send it.
THIS WILL BE MOST EFFECTIVE IF YOU CANCEL AN ACCOUNT AT THE SAME TIME.
I note they are mostly "untouchable" types, but if you happen to have an account with one of these companies, I urge you to cancel it.
Thanks for doing whatever you can to stick up for HONEST DEBATES - especially when it is Dr. Paul getting shafted.
PLEASE feel free to add your own "sample letter" below, although actual letters sent would be even better!
