IMPEACHMENT: Impeach Bush and Cheney: Put The Spot Light On Them In The Media






EASY AS 1,2,3…CHECK AND SEE!

WHAT IS THE SPOTLIGHT PROJECT? (AN OUTSTANDING TOOL TO SPREAD THE MESSAGE OF “WE THE PEOPLE”)

The Spotlight Project enables the progressive blogging community (bloggers, commenters, and lurkers) to quickly and easily forward blog posts, along with their own comments, to nearly anyone in the media.

The Spotlight Project exists to focus attention on the traditional news media. Specifically upon the media's lack of aggressive investigation and reporting of the Bush administration, the Republican controlled congress, and the influence of corporate money on the political process.

For years, conservatives have accused the media of a liberal bias. However, an analysis of reporting clearly shows that the traditional news media consistently favors Republican and establishment causes and either ignores or denigrates progressive causes. One has to look no farther than comparing how the press treated the Clinton Whitewater deal versus numerous Bush scandals such as warrantless wiretaps, signing statements, torture, etc that upend the constitution. (Visit our collection of Media Critiques for more detail.)

In contrast, the progressive blogging community is very effective at fact checking, in depth analysis, developing stories that the traditional news ignores and identifying the press's regurgitation of Republican talking points.

The Spotlight Project works by enabling the progressive blogging community to more efficiently communicate with the traditional news media, their advertisers, and politicians. The hope is that with enough voices we can reinvigorate the fourth estate.
