This USA TODAY article reached tens of millions of people today all over the United States. Somebody besides me should tell his campaign staff, as well as tell Bernie himself that he should be sending editorials on several key subjects like this one to editorial page editors like the one in USA Today. It reached tens of millions of people in the largest publication in America, and pointed out clearly that Clinton as SoS promoted fracking in many other nations, much to the delight of her oil and gas donors on the boards of Chevron, Exon, etc.
I am baffled by what appears to be the reticence to do so thus far, but that is all going to have to change radically. Since it saves money on advertising, really gets the word out directly to readers in the prestigious context of the editorial page, and above all is not likely to be turned down at this point by any editor in any of the remaining states, they should be sending out ten or twenty or 100 times as much in this realm. I don't just mean press releases; any politician excels at that; I am strictly referring to editorial page submissions, which that particular editor can either accept or reject.
It's called the Battle of the Editorial Pages, and I know how potent this strategy could be from my extensive experience in the same realm in the 2008 and 2012 elections. Would any reader here, including the publisher of OpEdNews, care to pass that idea along to your friends in the campaign HQ?
Just to send a letter to the campaign would be excellent if it corroborates this very obvious strategy. How to send an email? firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, plus personal messages to Symone D. Sanders, National Press Secretary, and to Tad Devine, National Campaign Advisor, both of the latter on Facebook, plus the directors of each state remaining, all listed in the campaign advisor page here.
Furthermore, short sincere and accurate letters to the editor, not to exceed 200 words, asking various papers in the remaining states to endorse him I believe will pay handsome returns as the votes come in in those states over the next 45 days. At the website, usnpl.com, there are extensive easy to access and easy to use lists for every remaining state. Help Bernie with the battle for the remaining states by putting your support on the editorial pages, too. Phone banking is great, but that alone is not going to do it, and nor is ordinary advertising.
The USA Today editorial by Senator Sanders is the proof of that. My own detailed article on Bernie's Save Oak Flat bill came out today in the Baltimore Post Examiner, graciously published in full. The photos of the destruction wrought by Rio Tinto Mining in other parts of the world are shocking and even nauseating, but this shows what kind of President Bernie would be, and what kind of President his opponent would NOT be.
