Reader comment on item: Television in Time of War

Mr. Loev,
Your comments about the politics moving the choices about what fanaticism to air (or not) are quite persuasive. Yet another compelling reason to take the power into our own hands. These media sideshows/paid political announcements are paid for by advertiser's dollars. We need to reserve and practice the right to protest such blatant propaganda. Each one of us can exercise our voice by contacting the advertisers ... wherever they pay for such hogwash ... and let them know exactly what we think of their choices.

I believe that Dr. Pipes deserves all the support he can get and we have the power to lend our support where it matters ... protest to the networks may help and it may also entrench their position even more deeply. The advertisers, by nature, are more pragmatic, I think.
