April 4, 2005--

Two resourceful gals launch a TV-Remote Rebellion against unbalanced dominant-media coverage of U.S. troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantanamo and elsewhere in war on terror.

            Two resourceful gals launch a TV-Remote Rebellion against dominant-media coverage presenting an unbalanced over-emphasis on the negative and under-emphasis on the positive regarding the efforts of our troops and our country in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere in the war against terrorism.  To support their efforts, PoliSat.Com designed a logo (see image to the right) which other sites are welcome to display so that clicking it will link visitors to their site:  http://www.petitiononline.com/WER4USA/petition.html.  Other sites are welcome to download the logo and display it on their servers (with the above link) or display the logo (with the above link) via PoliSat.Com's server at [http://PoliSat.Com/images/WER4USA-PetitionLogo-01.gif] -- whichever they may prefer. 

            The campaign is in progress with a goal of having the TV-Remote Rebellion take place on Memorial Day as a way of honoring our troops by clicking away from the unbalanced networks (not just the "news") on that day.  Do we expect the news media to be "cheerleaders" for whatever our country does?  Of course not.  Do we expect members of the media who always posture themselves as cheerleaders for "freedom of the press" against "government censorship" to be "cheerleaders" against tyranny?  Of course we do.  Does that mean we expect at least a degree of "cheerleading" for our troops in their struggle against tyranny?  Of course it does!  

            The launching of this TV-Remote Rebellion by Laurie Calland and Heather Kamimoto makes this a good occasion for PoliSat.Com to reprise a number of animations from the Archives that are relevant to these issues:  http://PoliSat.Com/images/AlJaTeddya.gif; http://PoliSat.Com/mages/Interrogation101.gif; http://PoliSat.Com/mages/Interrogation102.gif; http://PoliSat.Com/mages/CBSNewsContemptForTheTroops.gif; http://PoliSat.Com/mages/PassingTheCoverageRedux.gif; http://PoliSat.Com/Images/ThumbsOnTheScales.gif and http://PoliSat.Com/DeedsInOurName.htmNeedless to say, the dominant media surely cannot deny they have much room for improvement.
