Think protests are the only way to influence public opinion? Think again! You can also track news coverage and keep the media truly "fair and balanced." When they miss the point, as you see it, let them know. If you read it in the paper, write a letter to the editor in response. If you saw or heard it on the airwaves, call the station and express yourself tactfully and assertively. Let them know that, as a consumer of the news, they should consider your views too.
