Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Now, I love Stewart and Colbert and I love the way that they give the middle finger to the Corporate Media establishment (even though they are employed by a big member of the Corporate Media monster).

They are voices of reason in an unreasonable multimedia landscape of buffoons and charlatans.  They are present day court jesters with razor sharp wit and political satire that shed light on the real fools.

That being said, I am worried that their 10.30.10 rally on DC is taking the oxygen away from the 10.2.10 rally being promoted by the more serious Labor/Civil Rights/Peace coalition of One Nation Working Together.  Hell, I very much look forward to both rallies and planning on going to both.

But the Corporate Media is, collectively, avoiding coverage of the 10.2.10 rally.  With the Citizens United ruling, Corporate Media has become a real threat to our representative democracy.  Media technology convergence and the disappearance of net neutrality means that the electorate can be manipulated by unrelenting Orwellian political propaganda to rival anything the Communists and Fascists of old could ever have had.

We need to push the media powers that be to cover 10.2.10 with the same amount of attention that they gave Glenn Beck and will give Stewart/Colbert.

E-mail MSNBC at mediainquiries@msnbc.com and ask them to cover 10.2.10.
