Educational Action against the Chicago CBS affiliate, Oct. 11 and 18

Posted by Bob - October 9, 2004 (entry 240)

Please join in our action at CBS Monday October 11 and again on October 18!

Chicago Media Action will be at CBS's main studios Monday October 11, and again next Monday, the 18th, with signs and handouts attacking CBS News for politically-motivated self-censored journalism. CMA wants a cancelled '60 Minutes' expose about the Iraq War to be broadcast. CMA also wants fewer Chicago radio and television licenses to be renewed for CBS and its conglomerate owner, Viacom International.

This CMA 'educational outreach action' will be at Viacom's offices and studios for its Channel 2 Television and for 3 of its 7 Chicago radio stations. 630 N. McClurg Court is a mile due north of the Loop and a block from Lake Michigan. We will be there through rush hour, from about 3 p.m. until 6 p.m.

Our handout states our issues very briefly, And has a good article with more details,

Please forward this information widely. And print and distribute copies of the handout if you can.

Contact: Ron Kunde, CMA, (773) 929-3461.
