  1. Dear Maurice

    What should I do? No one wants to talk about this in the commercial media . Of 9 MPs, 9 with no comment. Of one Human Rights Lawyer “The idea is good”. I think you have the experience to understand what I am trying to point out. Which I guess is that it is truly impossible to have real democracy if the mass media is funded through the sale of advertising. At this point I have a single post blog that outlines my reasons for coming to such an absolute conclusion. I refine it from time to time.
    yours

  2. Maurice,

    May I have permission to reprint your article? May I have permission to alter it slightly so that I may write a letter to my Congressperson by changing some of the words but leaving the overall message the same, albeit now coming from an American to her Congressperson?
