Grassroots Newspaper Ad Effort to Be Reported in Major News Outlets
At least it will be if we start contacting members of the main stream press. Spoon feed the story to them. Give them an objective look at what was accomplished.
Talk about meetup groups. Talk about the Ron Paul Revolution. Talk about how quickly is was accomplished. Talk about how much it would normally cost for a national campaign to pull something like this off.
Then email or call every local and national news agency you can think of. Give them the links to the original thread, give them the link to http://ronpaulmosaic.com/
Write the story for them: either as a supporter or as a reporter.
There are thousands of news outlets across the US. If we contact all of them, at lest a percentage of them will run with this story: because it is an interesting human interest story. Write a completely objective story that could be picked up by the AP or Reuters.
Remember, local stations and news papers always want stories. Do their jobs for them and get the word out!
Who will you contact today?
Do we want to be attracting media attention the forums? That sounds like it could backfire, but I don't know.
The Campiagn has specifically requested that all press releases come from the campaign.
I think giving forum URLs is a bad idea.
I agree, lets not 'get too crazy' about all this... why? well, they might start coming down hard on us... regarding regulations and all of that... lets let this wave grow organically.
Not only that, I put out 4 -1/2 ads in the last week in Ames Iowa... had over 40 rotations of a radio ad on WHO and WOW (today wow fm 98.3 is running the last blast 6x times today -- listen in Des Moines)... so the current ad is FANTASTIC, but its not 'new' in that we at the grassroots level have been doing this for weeks now... same as when meetups march down the street!!! To me, that is MUCH MORE involved.. hahhaha... I am a very shy person... so, lets keep this all in perspective...
Stay tuned.. in the next 1.5 weeks.. I will be making some big announcements for promotion, and we will ALL BE INVOLVED......
lets not draw too much attention to ourselves right now... the powers that be will no doubt get a directive to stomp it... so, to me.. lets be hush.

Xita, please tell us you are not doing this. If you have started, PLEASE STOP!
