Instead of making donations to politicians this year, I made a small donation to The Real News Network. I urge our readers who are able to do so, to do it now. This video explains what they are about and what they will offer us in the future. The founders are from both sides of the political spectrum who, as Jerry Doolittle reminded us, on certain issues meet in common agreement on the problems facing the nation. There is only so far that we bloggers can take things. Americans are so used to the television format that in order to get our message out, the format must be expanded beyond corporate TV news. This a long term plan, as the cable networks are unlikely to take on The Real News network at this time.
I urge you to donate today to help them get started. Maybe this video will convince you.
