"I certainly support the need for a more fair and ethical media, and recognize that stopping media consolidation and net neutrality are major tasks to accomplish. The last year and a half have really made it clear to me how much the media is both biased and totally without a sense of their professional obligations. As such, I'd love to remain a subscriber and supporter. However, considering that the major role of the press in the last year has been as ass-licking toadying Obama supporters to the detriment of the democratic process, and considering that your organization fails to recognize this even though it has been the subject of peer-reviewed communications research, I'll have to take my leave. If you are more concerned about the two or three myths spread by extremely right-wing outlier news sources than about the blatant misogyny and appalling reprehensible falsehoods reported on two major female candidates by every major newspaper and news network, then you are beyond partisan- you are self-absorbed to the point of total blindness and incoherence. Please do let me know if you eventually take your collective heads out of your respective asses though, as I still support your larger goal."

This supposedly non-partisan org did nothing but scream about anti-Obama bias for all of last year. How do you get an org's non-profit status yanked? Because these guys are NOT non-partisan. Hey, maybe that's the next step for us to take. Start fucking over all of the "non-partisan" Obama cheerleader orgs non-profit status!

I'm glad you liked it. I certainly had fun writing it.

Moveon would be the first one, as they were the worst of the lot spouting misogyny and lies about Hillary from way back in the primaries, Code Pink is another that did that during the primaries too, not quite on the extreme level Moveon did, but bad enough. I'm peeved at NARAL too, they never really did anything for abortion rights and toadied up to Obama when Hillary was the one fighting for all women's rights including abortion rights, while Obama freaking did nothing (just like NARAL- guess that's why they endorsed him even before the primaries were over)

At least NOW had the decency to wait until after the convention... and did talk a bit about the sexism (but only in the news media, not Obama's and his campaign's misogyny) directed at Hillary.
