***Welcome Instapundit Readers***
Conservatives are always asking me how they can fight back. Aside from my usual advice – get behind a conservative candidate’s campaign and do everything you can to get them elected – here’s an easy way:
Boycott all Disney movies, all ESPN programming, and all ABC programming until ABC News fires George Stephanopoulos and Brian Ross.
This morning on Good Morning America, the dynamic duo of Ross and Stephanopoulos equated the Tea Party’s fight for limited government with the murders perpetrated last night in Aurora, Colorado. Despite their half-assed apologies, they have impuned the integrity of millions of Americans by demeaning the tea party on national television. (Stephanopoulos was also behind blaming talk radio for the Oklahoma City bombing under the Clinton Administration.)
Let’s send a message. Let’s tell the left-wing media that their bias is going to start hurting them.
Disney owns both ABC and ESPN. Roughly 150 million Americans describe themselves as conservative. If just a small fraction of us join in this boycott, I promise that Stephanopoulos and Ross will be unemployed within the next two weeks.
Disney’s movie “Brave” hits the theaters this week. Let’s start there. Don’t take your kids to see it. Stop watching SportsCenter. If you watch any of ABC’s programming, take a break for awhile. (See a list of ABC’s programming here http://abclocal.go.com/wabc/promo)
Also, flood ABC News’ lines with your complaints. (This will really screw up their days.)
Their assignment desk is 212 456 2700.
You can reach ESPN at 212 916 9200.
And Disney at 212 456 3412
Make a dozen calls a day if you can. If they tell you to call another office, keep calling. Eventually their internal complaints will reach management.
Let’s make a stand. Let’s tell the networks that their unadmitted bias has repercussions. The only way to do it is to make keeping Stephanopoulos and Ross more painful than it’s worth.
If you have another blog, please share this mission. This blog gets more than half a million hits per month, and as our boycott gains speed, other sites are certain to join our cause.
I like Disney, ESPN and a few shows on ABC. I’m going to boycott them anyway. Together we can affect change for the better in our national discourse. Please share this on Facebook, Twitter and your own blogs. Please join me in the boycott until Stephanopoulos and Ross join the 8.4% of America that is unemployed.
