Media lies are responsible for wars, mass killings, and genocide. They frame issues (propaganda) to justify the atrocities being committed on a daily basis. We can STOP this dangerous assault on the truth and save humanity. But we must act quickly.

Media's power comes from its reach -- from ratings, which translates into money. We, as individuals and collectively, feed this cycle. Reduce the reach, lower the ratings, deprive its income. Boycott.

It is DOABLE. We can start with the most egregious (may vary from country to country), boycotting 3 outlets for 3 days until behavioral change is noted (rely on other media outlets to see if change has been instituted. Do NOT watch, listen, or read online the following:

CNN: Parent Company, Time Warner.

CBS: Controlled by Sumner Redstone

FOX: Parent Company NewsCorp

These (among many) have been pandering to Israel, presenting the assault as a war among equals and justifying the killing of women and children living in an outdoor concentration camp as 'defense'. We must stop their lies.

In order for our action to be effective, we must have numbers. This is what must be done:

Enlist at least 5 people (ideally with one of them having a different ideological view from yours -- it's doable) to commit to the BOYCOTT, CNN, CBS, and FOX for 3 DAYS -- July 21, 22, & 23.

Ask them to enlists 5 people, get commitment and inform you of the accomplishment.

Repeat the pattern.

Keep track of the numbers.

It is no longer sufficient for us to simply blow off steam on FB and other social media. We must act. We must bring the cycle of killing and lies to an end. We must unite and put in the effort. Let us save humanity.

We will plan our next phase in two weeks and after the initial response.
