I just made the following comment over at HillBuzz’s post on the importance of persistence in dealing with corporations — in this case, the campaign to persuade CBS to fire David Letterman:
What if we went to the Tea Parties with petitions calling for David Letterman to be fired and brought along pre-printed post cards and letters people could sign (after filling in their return address) that we would mail to CBS and Letterman’s sponsors?
We should press this until Letterman is fired.
I am positive the reason HillBuzz is standing pat on Sebastian’s June 18 post is that they are pressing this point: persistence and tenacity win the day. The idea of going to the Tea Parties prepared to give people something tangible to do to show that attacking children to intimidate and manipulate people you don’t agree with is career suicide will show CBS the campaign to FIRE DAVID LETTERMAN is gathering momentum.
