Tell CNN to Tune in to MSNBC

by Jacquelyn Mahendra on 10/29/2009 at 1:15pm

Together, we raised the $16,000 needed to run our TV ad on CNN – telling the station to drop Lou Dobbs’s one-sided, anti-immigrant “news” show.

However, unfortunately, CNN isn’t having it. They called to say they won’t take our money and have refused to air our “Drop the Hate” TV ad.

But we’ve worked too hard to give up, and we need your voice now:

Please stand with us in telling CNN’s President, Jonathan Klein, that he can’t silence our growing movement!

By refusing to deal with Lou Dobbs and his nightly tirade against immigrants, Latinos, and people of color, CNN is quickly losing credibility as the “Most Trusted Name in News.”  As people become aware of the network’s one-sided coverage of immigration, they will start changing the channel — which is exactly what we did. America’s Voice is airing the ad on MSNBC!

Tune in to the Rachel Maddow show at 9:00 pm EST tonight, October 29th, to see the ad that you so generously supported. We’ve purchased air time on local cable networks in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City, and Washington, DC. Most importantly, help us make sure that CNN’s president gets the message that we’re not going anywhere.
