On behalf of the American Dream Campaign, MoveOn.org, a coalition of groups working to bring real people into politics, is petitioning CNN to “Give the American Dream Movement air time to respond to President Obama’s jobs speech on Thursday, just like you did for the tea party.”
After President Obama gave his State of the Union speech in January, CNN gave air-time to both the Republican and Tea Party response. With Progressives under-represented in media and a political sphere that is pushing further and further to the right, MoveOn.org is petitioning CNN to level the playing field and work towards more informed debate. Obama will give his jobs speech this Thursday, and MoveOn wants their voices to be heard.
“And we’re going to hold Scott Brown accountable and any other elected official that votes against us, the people, the working people who pay their fair share of taxes and allow the rich to get away with not paying their fair share.”
