TV Boycott announces “Boycott the News” campaign (english)
07 Apr 2003
In an attempt to get the network news programs to cover the war in an unbiased and uncensored manner, the boycott will put pressure on the revenue stream that makes the network news possible.

Boycott the News
California, Illinois, Minnesota, New York, Texas - April 7, 2003 - TV Boycott has published the first of six monthly boycott lists as part of their campaign to correct censorship and bias in the news. A specific complaint and target of the immediate campaign is news coverage of the war in Iraq, on the national and local level.
By targeting the revenue stream of network television, mainly advertising, TV Boycott hopes to remind the networks that they answer not only to their stockholders but also to the owners of the public airwaves, the American people.
TV Boycott is actively monitoring national and local programming throughout the country and recording the products and services advertised during the broadcasts. A boycott list is posted on www.tvboycott.org. The public will then be invited to demonstrate their solidarity with the boycott by notifying those identified on the contact list.
Democracy can flourish only when people have access to reliable unfiltered information. The networks have an obligation to present unbiased balanced news coverage because of their free access to the public airwaves. If you feel like you've done all you can do and your voice is still not being heard find out more about TV Boycott.
