November is BOYCOTT CNN month

For their absolutely disgustingly lopsided coverage of this years Presidential election, I hereby proclaim November to be "BOYCOTT CNN month." If we all send this news to our address books and ask for it to be forwarded, it has plenty of time (6 days) to cover the country and half the globe. If we could kill 20% of their viewership for a month, maybe they would SMARTEN UP! I wonder if they could manipulate the Neilsen ratings as badly as they are doing it to the polls right now? Can you just imagine how much damage that would do to their bottom line when their advertisers see how much power we have? I am well aware that CNN is not the only offender, but I also know that people will watch news somewhere, so I decided to just pick on the biggest culprit. OK, so who is with me? Take the pledge, "I hereby promise to not watch CNN during the month of November, 2008." I am sick and tired of their terribly biased reporting, if you can even call it reporting, and their political hacks should all be fired! Other liberal biased channels should be warned that they might be next if they don't clean up their act! Reporters should REPORT the news, not create it!

For your viewing enjoyment I have added some video clips to the upper right portion of the page. I think I'll scour the net for more little goodies so I'll be able to swap them around once in a while.

I have already boycotted them for life....

Beth you are ahead of the game then. Way to go!! I wish we could actually cost them enough to open their eyes, but I doubt it.

Donald Douglas said...

It's all Obama, all the time, just about anywhere except Fox.

Depressing, but you fight the election with the media we have. I'm convinced Obama will overreach, and he'll be a failed one term president.

Have a good one.

I refuse to throw in the towel, at least not until November 5th. If the worst does happen, I only hope that 2012 will usher in a new President AND a new congress!

hi donald you radical mcplain rep such a statement shows just how desperate the republican party has gotten wise up

Z said...

Good advice, AA!! PLEASE, someone, we MUST get a list of CNN advertisers and stop buying product. DONE.

Also, November is election month......the very thought of seeing the gloating going on if their ONE wins is almost too much to take, anyway, so this shouldn't be a tough one.
I wonder how long it'll take before they realize they made a VERY bad mistake.

Barney Frank's already talking about cutting our military spending 25%....ready for that? Well, you had to be wondering how THE ONE was paying for all his leftwing idiocies, right?

Mr. Z boycotted CNN 2 years ago, especially Larry King; I have to quickly turn the channel if Mr. Z walks in the room and I only peeked to see who Larry (the 'independent!') has on.....This, and watching QVC, are the only two things Mr. Z would rather I not do.

So, I cheat once in a while!!
And, right..he'd rather I never gripe, too, I'll admit it!!!

average american you are just as out of touch and also probably a racist just like donald is so why don't you just wise up and go back to watching fox and rush limbaugh

Average American said...

Sportrat, I am not half the racist that barak HUSSEIN obama is! Don't believe me, just read either or both of his books. You sound like one of those gutter vermin that lives off the dole. If so, I can understand why you feel as you do, you don't want your welfare checks to stop coming. Get a job!

MK said...

I'm like Beth on CNN, unless they're like the only news channel available, i won't watch them.

Rather watch FOX, they really are Fair & Balanced when compared to the leftist MSM.

Average American said...

MK, I don't know that a handful of bloggers can make any difference in their biased coverage, but I do know we'll never make a difference if we don't try. Strictly blogging about it won't help, but getting the message into the e-main stream might stand a chance. If we could just dent their bottom line, they would listen, and maybe even act. It's worth a try.

Kris said...

I have never watched them. In fact, i didn't have cable until fox came on the picture...i got cable just to have news that I could actually watch.

Average American said...

kris, you are not missing ANYTHING! CNN has one show which I like, Lou Dobbs picks on Republicans and Demoncraps equally. Probably 80% of his shows have to do with illegal aliens which is a hot topic for me. He really does put up a damn good fight on behalf of the middle class! The rest of CNN can pound sand! Thanks for the visit and come on back soon. I'll drop by to check out your site in a minute.

shoprat said...

I have a better idea. Let's boycott the entire MSM until it either changes or collapses.

Average American said...

I'm with you shoprat, but I doubt to many news junkies could swear off all of them at the same time.
