MEDIA-US:Michael Jackson Easily Trumps Darfur on Nightly News

beAWitness.org

WASHINGTON, Jul 12 (IPS) - U.S. broadcast media are failing to provide even
minimal coverage of the ongoing crisis -- some say genocide -- in Darfur, Sudan,
according to a new report, which concludes that media fixation with celebrity,
as well as the Iraq war, is crowding out news of important events that deserve
global attention 10 years after the genocide in Rwanda.


beAWitness.org

join me and tell the TV networks to cover genocide in Darfur

I am inviting you to take action to tell the TV networks to do their job and cover
the situation in Sudan. I already sent a message to beAWitness.org and you can too by visiting http://www.BeAWitness.org

please go to http://www.beawitness.org/ and take action today!

thanks,
strider

I dunno if you know this or not, but there are graphics you can get from the site that you can add to your site. I did that.

They're pretty compelling graphics if you ask me.
