My Latest letter to the Network News

   By Fancy Pants Elitist at 9:13 PM

This is my latest letter to the Network News channels, the main ones, CBS, ABC, NBC and PBS. I will probably send this also to the cable news channels, and a modification of this to the major radio programs, but this took long enough to write that this is all I'm doing TODAY. :)


From: Joy
Date: 05/31/05 12:12:06
To: nightly@nbc.com
Subject: Campaign Launched to Demand a Presidential Inquiry




To the staff of NBC News,

The lack of coverage by the major networks of the Downing Street Memo has been appalling. I'm not sure if it's because you are all afraid of the administration, or your corporate owners are sitting on the news, but either way, because the media is not COVERING the NEWS, our soldiers are dying. Your complicity with the lies of the current administration of Neoconservatives make you equally guilty of this travesty. I write to remind you of your responsibility as "journalists" though that title you wear very loosely now.

I long for the days of journalistic integrity when Woodward and Bernstein remembered their duty to be the fourth estate, as a check and balance to curb the tyranny of governmental power, during the Watergate era. Or the days when an unjust war was primarily ended due to the courageous coverage of the Vietnam War by journalists such as the now scape-goated Dan Rather. Where are "journalists" now? Covering stupid, non-stories like Michael Jackson, the "Run-Away Bride" and other infotainment that does not constitute news! Or they are busy making apologies for covering a story that was true (Bush's service record), even if the documents that Rather relied on were probably forged by Karl Rove to release information that they could later discredit. (This btw, is what Karl Rove does, he is a master at Machiavellian techniques, and ABC owes Dan Rather an apology).

Without an effective landing page for each and every ad campaign you undertake, you're wasting money and customers. The ad attracts the prospect's interest, but landing pages are supposed to pick up where the ad leaves off and lead the prospect to complete the transaction. The hours and hours it will take you to perfect your landing pages are an investment in success. Failure to do so results in failure, especially if you are in the direct marketing side of e-commerceseo
