> Subject: Growing Press Coverage for Viacom War Crimes Censorship Scandal, Possible Federal Lawsuit and More
> To: angusfarms@hotmail.com
> As scandal around Viacom's censorship of an attempted paid ad for
> "The Last War Crime" movie continues to grow, some very prominent
> bloggers are starting to cover the story, like Michael Hayne of
> Addicting Info, where they get 3 millions hits a month.
> Here's the link to the article, including an exclusive interview with
> The Pen himself (or maybe it should be "myself"), with quotes and
> info you can read nowhere else. Please everyone click on the
> forwarding link below and check out the article.
> www.peaceteam.net/addicting_info_article.php
> For your information Michael Hayne is a prominent comedian as well,
> who produces a chapter of Laughing Liberally, wrote for NY Times
> Laugh Lines, and writes a column for MSNBC.com affiliated Cagle
> Media.
> What about you? Are you a journalist, too? Drop us an email and The
> Pen will give you an exclusive interview also. Do you have a radio
> show? Why not interview The Pen about this valiant struggle against
> corporate censorship live on your show?
> There have already been more than 10,000 protest submissions to
> Viacom over the censorship of the content of "The Last War Crime" and
> under no circumstances will they succeed in stopping this movie.
> After all, it's about indicting Cheney for torture . . . and isn't
> that something billions of people want to see? So please keep the
> heat on and keep those submissions coming. Here's a direct link to
> the action page:

> In the meantime, we are seriously considering filing a federal
> lawsuit against MTV/Viacom. The Supreme Court's justification for
> removing all meaningful regulation of corporations spending unlimited
> money to buy paid advertising was that the power to spend money was
> the equivalent of free speech. But what if these same corporations
> SELECTIVELY refuse advertising for messages they don't approve of.
> What happens to free speech then, when you cannot even BUY "free"
> speech?
> The curious thing about the Supreme Court's elevation of corporations
> to the status of super people, just like natural people except with
> gargantuan campaign war chests, is that it was done by turning the
> 14th Amendment's equal protection provisions inside out. By what if
> different advertisers with different messages are discriminated
> against because of their message. Is THAT not a triable equal
> protection case? Do not the courts have a duty to intervene to stop
> this injustice?
> Someone has to make this argument, and this may in fact be the case
> to do it. Are you an attorney with an interest in these areas? Please
> email us back now and let's talk about how we can make a real strong
> showing in federal court.
> We are also posting LOTS of great still photographs from "The Last
> War Crime" movie on the Facebook page. You don't have to be a
> Facebook member to see all the sneak preview pictures. But if you are
> active on Facebook, please like the page and share, share, SHARE.
> The Last War Crime on Facebook:
> http://www.facebook.com/thelastwarcrime
> And also if you have many Facebook friends yourself we also need more
> people to help administer the page. Would not take much time. It's
> just a little something extra you can help do to really get this
> movie out there in real theaters where it needs to be seen.
> And you like rock and rock, check out the theme song of the movie,
> "It's A Crime", featuring the very best studio musicians and singers
> in Los Angeles. You can download the tune right now from iTunes for
> just 99 cents, and help to get the movie out that way as well.

> There's one more thing we want to ask you about. We were invited to
> participate in an event for Rocky Anderson, former mayor of Salt Lake
> City, who is working on putting together an independent campaign for
> president. We'd like your feedback. You may remember, in the
> aftermath of the health care bill debacle, we vowed to only work for
> independent candidates. As our participants, is this something you
> would like to see us get involved in?
> Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed
> to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.
