    for CNN? I like to send a personal message rather than just signing a petition. Their contact page is circling round and round for me and won't download. It's ridiculous to keep giving this guy a stage when he regularly espouses violence. What is wrong with modern media that it values sensationalism instead of actual news? (That's rhetorical, but geez!)

      Which I guess you have.

      I think the Komen incident was very instructive of the power of Facebook. Komen's Facebook wall was just plastered with nothing but complaints.

      I think it'd be a good idea to suggest people do the same to CNN's wall.

      It's here:

      It makes it really hard for CNN to contain the story, and people see their friends posting on CNN's walls and it propagates the story even further and invites them to engage as well.

        Saw your post there, too!

        I never could get their comments page to come up for me. Maybe my connection is slow today. I would encourage anyone who uses FB to also "like" and/or reply with encouragement to posts there about Martin. It would seem to let them know that the message is being heard.
