Spread the word to readers
and key decision makers across the country. You can bring an issue to
the attention of a department editor, send a press release, or write a
letter to the editor on-line.
NOTE: If you write a letter
to the editor on-line, be sure to enter Letter to Editor on the Subject
line; and be sure to include your name, home address and daytime
telephone number. Keep your letter brief (under 200 words is best)
and to-the-point for a better chance of publication. Letters which
respond to a story or commentary in that paper often have the best
chance of publication. You can alert readers about important
issues, correct distortions, ask readers to contact their
representatives, and even praise or expose a Congressman's or Senator's
vote on an issue in their home state paper!
And above all, hold
reporters and editors to high ethical standards - write or e-mail them
with your comments, complaints, praise, or reports of bias.
