Petition to MSNBC and CNN: Stop promoting Donald Trump

http://act.credoaction.com/sign/msnbc_cnn_trump_dems

Within hours of Donald Trump proposing a ban on all Muslims entering the United States, both MSNBC and CNN interrupted their evening programming to broadcast live footage from a Trump campaign rally in South Carolina. MSNBC took it a step further, quickly announcing that Trump would appear live on its Morning Joe program the next morning, for the second time in just eight days.

The mediaís obsession with Donald Trump has gone too far. By relentlessly chasing ratings and devoting massive airtime to Donald Trump interviews and live coverage of his speeches, MSNBC and CNN are providing Trump with free publicity that is fueling his campaign.

Tell MSNBC and CNN: Stop promoting Donald Trumpís racist presidential campaign.

7. K & R

I am sick of his schtick!

As to the argument that we need to see more rather than less of him, I disagree. His hateful bigotry has been a siren call to the crazies. His speech is incendiary and seems to be influencing an increase in discriminatory actions against Muslims. And MSNBC and CNN are complicit in promoting his message.

11. I don't mind so much...

If they cover him. What annoys me to no end is when they bring on equally creepy GOPers to give a "balanced" viewpoint.
