CNN Blackout for Gov. Gary Johnson! Please Read!

John S.
Today we're organizing a virtual blackout of CNN for Gary Johnson! Help if you can!! CNN has never given Gary Johnson a fair shot. They kept him out of GOP debates based upon not reaching certain thresholds in CNN polls - WHICH DIDN'T EVEN INCLUDE HIM AS A CHOICE on their polls!! We're facing similar circumstances now. And today they STILL omit him from polls even though Gov. Johnson will appear on all 50 states' ballots and is polling between 7 to 13% on other polls! We must band together to insure his inclusion on the national stage. 15% will get him there. Here's how we can work to get him some face time on CNN:

TWITTER AND SOCIAL MEDIA BLACKOUT

Who: Everyone! What: Take to Twitter and other social media and call on CNN to include Gov. Johnson When: July 16, 2012, all day! Where: Twitter, Facebook and everywhere! Notes: The most powerful of these tools is Twitter, followed by Facebook. But all Social Media mentions are welcome! Everyone take to their computers and phones and demand that CNN take notice.

We start at 11 and continue all day. Tweets to: @CNN , @CNNPolitics , @CNNBRK (breaking news) Hashtag: #BlackoutCNN. Please do not use this tag until July 16 at 11 am EST. EXAMPLE: “#BlackoutCNN like they have blacked out @GovGaryJohnson ! Include him in your polling @CNN .”

The more we do, the more likely it is that we will be picked up by other media, as well, who will pressure CNN to pay attention!

PHONE BLACKOUT

Who: Everyone!

What: Call CNN and demand that they include Gov. Johnson

When: Beginning July 16, 2012, beginning at 4:00 PM CST

Where: CNN (404) 827-1500

Notes: States are paired up to work together for 30 minute intervals. We will work at this EVERYDAY until CNN includes Gov. Johnson, but July 16 is important to make an impact. We are asking for only a few minutes of a lot of people’s time. We need as many people as possible to call. ·

Stay on the line until you talk to a live person. · Ask to speak to whomever is in charge of polling and debates for the Presidential Race · Sample script: “I would like for CNN to include Libertarian Nominee Governor Gary Johnson in their polling for the general election because he represents my views on many subjects, ________ being one of them. Will you please begin including him in your polling?”

If enough people call at once, we can jam their phone lines, which will also get their attention. Libertarians did that to Herman Cain’s radio show, and he included the candidate after that, so this can be very effective. Schedule (All times are listed as Eastern time so adjust for each state’s time accordingly).

Texas Gary Johnson Supporters call from 4:30 - 5:00 pm!! If you can't call during these hours, call when you can!

Blackout cnn moneybomb Show your support for a candidate who really represents the people. No more elistist-picked, big government candidates! Show CNN that we have the voices and the dollars to support Gov. Johnson and Judge Gray. Every dollar counts, and is a huge assistance for the campaign. Please donate $10, $25, $50 … up to $2500 per individual towards the campaign. Every dollar we raise shows the media and the two-party establishment that we are fed up with the “choices” they force upon us. http://www.facebook.c...
