Ron Paul and the NH Media...Submitted by Jane Aitken on Mon, 10/01/2007 - 14:55
Do not spam WMUR or any other news outlet as someone suggested in another post. While you might send a politely written story to their news department, I have it on good authority that they have already received tons of information they can use concerning event numbers both past and present, and fundraising and straw poll numbers, that they can use for any upcoming stories about the end of the quarter.
They do know that MSNBC scooped them.
Thank you for that posting of the excellent MSNBC article here:
The media will respond to requests but not if you are harassing them.
That said, here is how you can meanwhile help with the media.
As other sites have noted, is hard to imagine that WMUR was just two blocks away from the rally and they could not manage to send a camera...but here is what you can do.
WMUR maintains a section on their website for each candidate where people can upload campaign photos. I regret that I have been behind in doing this myself since the June 22nd visit and still have many to upload myself. But I suggest that anyone who took photos of the event on Saturday upload them there, with informative captions such as '700 turn out for Ron Paul' or '700 campaign with 27 family members' etc.
Please keep the WMUR photos NH-centric.
Here is the URL:
I realize that many of you across the nation also upload your photos to FLICKR then designate them to go to the Ron Paul group there, and this is great too!
