Nice, but two things: one, the networks are being taken over by cable.
Two, any advocacy group talking to advertisers has the distinct disadvantage of
being a minority in terms of viewing audience. I'm not saying it won't work,
but going up to advertisers and threatening not to buy their products because
they won't support an upstart is a bit risky; the Christian advocacy groups can
tell you about that.

target. How about reaching out into their pockets $$$$$$$, talk (strongly) to
the advertisers.
