This is REALLY exciting!!!

The Spotlight Project

The Spotlight Project examines the media, the role it plays in politics and the public discussion. More importantly, The Spotlight Project enables individuals to communicate with the press and media.

Blogs are changing how we discuss our world. At the very time that many news organizations are losing readership and cutting staff, the Internet in general and blogs specifically, are growing at a phenomenal rate.

In easy peasy Paddy terms... You read a blog diary. You think your local political reporter on channel BFD should know about it. (Or Frank Rich at the NYT). You click on the Spotlight link at the bottom of the post... and MAGIC!!!

You are transported to a list of all available media in the USA.


You are transported to a list of all available media in the USA.

How many times have you read something on a blog and thought, "F***ing media, they never cover this shit!!!" and "If Mike Isikoff knew about this....".
Well, now YOU can tell them!!!

Demonstration Page

It is an incredible idea and Mark the fantabulous man who thought it up deserves all the kudos in the world!!! Check it out, and rec it to your favorite blogs. It is FREE, but if you dropped a coin in Marks' cup, he wouldn't bitch.

Really, I'm serious, go check it out.

All Mark asks....

* Please be polite and reasonable. We don't want folks to get angry
and up-in-arms over a bunch of ad hominem attacks.

* Since it's a serious tool that could have a profound effect as we
try to re-shape the dominant narrative with key opinion makers,
abusing it could not only lessen its effectiveness, it could
neutralize it completely.

* Praise is just as important - if not more so - than criticism.

Game the **** on.....

You used "forward" and Pres. in the same sentence. You know very well that you can only use "backward" in reference to that moron. : )

Spotlighting a blog entry doesn't make sense to me. The media is the problem. Blogs are the solution. Seems sorta backwards or even regressive.
