Hi,

I live in Rochester MN and have access to quite a few news channels, both local and nation.. I have not found any talk of the Ron Paul events yet on ANY locals news, both Rochester and Twin Cities... Has anyone else noticed this?? If so, we need to get some emails out to the local news directors.. A lot of local coverage can make it to nation news (maybe not so much this week) but it is worth seeing more coverage........

maybe we should email bomb the local press?

That was a thought, nothing like a little (errr, a lot) of email asking for them to pick up an event with 10,000+ fans!!! This is not a basement meeting, this is pretty official, time for the media to stop boycotting RP!!

KSTP (ABC) gennewstips@kstp.com

Rochester:

KTTC (NBC) news@kttc.com
KAAL (ABC) NEWS@KAALtv.com

Most of these stations have the AP story on their site, but no onscreen news coverage of the R4R......
