Operation Shame on You

Posted by DavidNYC

I like this idea: Some folks have launched "Operation Shame on You," which is designed to target newspapers which endorsed Bush in 2000 to get them to change their minds for this year. The current target state is Pennsylvania. A number of papers there actually endorsed Clinton-Gore in 1996, so getting them to see the light via letters to the editor might actually be doable.

OSOY has previously targeted Ohio and Florida, but if you want to help out with those states, you certainly still can. This is something very easy to do - you don't even have to get out of your chair. I'm not sure how big of an effect these endorsements have, but I'm inclined to believe that they matter, particularly for undecided voters right near the end of the campaign. Let's put it another way: It can't hurt to have as many endorsements as you can muster.

Hey, Cyberactor here (spiritual father of "Operation Shame on You") with an update. We now have a stand-alone website for this project at www.YoureAccountable.com .

Stop by and check it out! This project has finally taken wing and there are now hundreds of people writing to these papers. Thanks for spreading the word!
