You may have seen the petition to fire David Letterman circulating on the internet via emails and blog sites. Michael Leahy, the creator of FireLetterman.com has organized a protest rally to be held on Monday. Let’s strike back against the distasteful and hateful sexists attacks of Governor Palin and her young daughters by liberal talk show host David Letterman. Let’s send Letterman, CBS and its sponsors a message loud and clear. ENOUGH!!!
From Michael Leahy:
I am pleased to report that we have received enough volunteer leader commitments from the now 2,253 people on this mailing list to make a FIRM DECISION to go forward with a planned FIRE DAVID LETTERMAN RALLY, currently scheduled to be held from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm this Monday June 15 outside the Ed Sullivan Theater, located at 1697 Broadway in New York City. If you live anywhere within a 4 hour driving distance of New York City, please plan on attending this event. Bring your own signs (be creative but PG rated!). We will be announcing more details over the weekend so stay tuned. We need more volunteers to help our "Project Servant-Leaders", so please email me at [email protected] if you can provide some time. Laureen Cummings has agreed to serve as our "Project Servant- Leader" responsible for our Media Relations. Marie Wilkinson and others have agreed to share "Project Servant-Leader" responsibilities in the Social Media arena. We have volunteers for our logistics and volunteer coordination areas as well, and will be announcing the names of that leadership group over the weekend. Keep telling your friends on the internet and in person to sign the letter to CBS asking them to fire David Letterman at our website, http://www.firedavidletterman.com . Two additional pieces of news to show that we and others are already making some progress: 1. CBS has received so many negative comments about Letterman they have shut down the comments section of their website. 2. A leading New York State Legislator, Brian Kolb, publicly called today for CBS to fire Letterman. Thanks for all your help. Stay tuned for news over the weekend about how you can help make this coming Monday's "FIRE DAVID LETTERMAN RALLY" a success ! Best Regards, Michael Patrick Leahy
