Media blackout on Cheney impeachment charges

Shockingly, the corporate media is all but ignoring the major story that Congressman Dennis Kucinich has filed impeachment charges against Vice President Dick Cheney. This will surely have the intended result of a lack of popular pressure against Congress to follow through.

We cannot allow the corporate media monopolies to derail this process. We must spread the news about this event as far and as wide as possible. Please tell everyone you meet, in real life as well as online. And above all, call your member of Congress and Senators by calling the Capitol Switchboard, toll-free at 1-800-862-5530.

Tell them you'd like to talk to your member of Congress or Senator, and give them your zipcode if you don't know the person's name. They'll connect you to their offices, and there you can call for the impeachment of Cheney first, and Bush second.

And also, you ought to call your local media, TV and print, and demand that they run this story. Also, you can stage protests outside the newspaper and TV studio offices, to raise hell about this issue. This is the first chance we've had to make real change happen in Washington, so let's take advantage of it!

Right on, brother! I can't believe how this story has been ignored. We need to pass the word on to everone we know to put pressure on the spineless Democrats to get off their asses and show so political courage! Go Kucinich!
