NBC: Cancel The Apprentice, Miss USA and Miss Universe

    Dear NBC, I grew up wondering if Rachel and Ross would stay together, my favorite psychiatrist would finally have a relationship, and trying to figure out if George was really the master of his own domain. I watched show after show in the good and the bad times. I still cannot see you eye to eye for taking my favorite cannibal away, but hey, at least you brought back Duchovny!   Which is why I am wondering as to why the Latinos are being treated as second class citizens. Food Network cancelled Paula Dean's shows for insulting the African-American community, Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty was suspended for his anti-gay remarks, and so on and so forth. Yet, as one of the most watched TV networks in the country and owner of Telemundo, the second most largest Hispanic TV network, you side for business and not for ethics, principles and values. A few days ago, one of your TV reality show stars by the name of Donald Trump, decided to announce his candidacy for the largest public position in the United States, the presidency. He called Latinos, not only Mexicans, rapists, drug users and criminals. Racists in this country do not differentiate between Central and South Americans or Mexicans, they just use the word "Mexican." Not only do Mexicans cross the border, but so do Salvadorians, Guatemalans, Dominicans, etc. The word Mexican is also used to describe anybody that looks Latino or has a Latino name, Yes, even those born in this country. Univision decided to see principles as a priority instead of business and cut ties with Trump and Miss USA. Your answer, "we do not agree with his positions on a number of issues including his recent comments on immigration." You did not cancel Miss USA, The Apprentice or even made reference to his hateful and divisive remarks. Not only that, but the only reason why you would not have him as head of The Apprentice would be because of his political aspirations, not because of his incendiary remarks in a country where violence against minorities and racism are still around daily. I, like many others, am an immigrant and had immigrant ancestors that gave their heart and soul for this country. I have two Bachelor degrees and one Masters. There are also millions and millions of us that are reporters, police, entertainers, entrepreneurs, etc. Some even defend this country as part of the military! I am working for the community everyday as well as being an outstanding citizen. I am not a rapist, I have never taken drugs, and the worst thing I have ever done is going fast on the freeway from time to time. I am not worth $4.1 billion, but my people spend way more than that on your advertisers. We have a voice and we decide the future of this country.  Please cancel Miss USA, Miss Universe and the Apprentice. You are supporting a hateful and narcissistic individual without any kind of values, both personal and business wise. Not only that, but you are supporting a growing trend of bigotry and division in this country. Mr. Trump does not need to apologize anymore, which he will not according to his remarks after being dumped by Univision. He needs to be shown that his behavior belongs in the past before the civil rights movement. It is time for him and people like him, to join this century and work for this country, not against it. A large part of your audience is Hispanic and we watch NBC, NBC News, and Telemundo. How about looking out for us? ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- End of original petition.

NBC Fire Katie Rich

NBC’s Dateline runs an award winning series titled “My Kid Would Never Do That, Bullying”.  Ironically, following President Donald Trump's inauguration, one of NBC’s employees Katie Rich, from SNL, tweeted about the President's youngest son. Rich tweeting “Barron will be this country's first homeschool shooter”. Three hours later she deleted her tweet. Barron Trump is a 10-year-old boy and Donald Trump's youngest child with wife, Melania Trump. He attends the Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School in Manhattan. He is fluent in English and Slovene.  Melania throughout the Trump campaign has said she wanted to keep Barron out of the public eye and as such Barron made a total of three appearances on his father’s campaign trail.  Rosie O'Donnell sparked criticism after she retweeted a video suggesting that Barron Trump has a developmental disorder. “Barron Trump Autistic?”  Rosie issued a tardy apology to Melania In 2014, Republican congressional aide, Elizabeth Lauten, resigned after her Facebook post criticizing President Obama’s daughters for their attitude and outfits during the annual White House turkey pardon. A child’s self-esteem can be devastatingly effected long after being bullied or harassed. A child who has only been bullied even once in his or her life can suffer lifelong effects. Kids who have been bullied are more likely to suffer: depression and anxiety, increased feelings of sadness and loneliness, changes in sleep and eating patterns, and loss of interest in activities they used to enjoy. NBC needs to put their money where their mouth is and fire Katie Rich if they truly believe that there is no tolerance for bullying.  Rich has yet to apologize to Barron and the Trump family for her horrific attack on a 10-year-old boy.  A young boy who was put in the limelight because of who his father is.  #firekatierich #SNLstopthehatedumpkate Please sign and share this petition. We as a society can change this behavior by standing up to child bullies. We can let these children know we will not tolerate bullying in any form.

Have Deadpool host Saturday Night Live

We've all seen the trailers, the magazine covers, the viral videos, and the billboards by now, so what's left for Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) to do? HOST SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE AS DEADPOOL!!!! How would this not be hilarious having Deadpool in sketches, breaking the 4th wall, and inserting some of his brand of humor (obviously toned down a bit for network television)!?!?! I have not watched a full episode of SNL in years because I just haven't been able to stomach an entire episode, but having Deadpool host, star, and be all over the episode would get the DVR set so I can watch it again and again!!! Not to mention, depending on the musical guest, how awesome would it be to have some Deadpool interpretive dancing while the musical guest was playing? There's unlimited possibilities!!!Sign this petition in hopes that it'll find it's way to the 'powers that be' and get that idea churning in their heads! Bring Deadpool to host SNL!!!

Removing Tomi Lahren From TheBlaze

Everyone has a voice and an opinion.  However, when the wrong voice is given a platform and is allowed to influence an audience of millions by perpetuating derogatory ideology toward select groups of individuals, this is where the injustice lies.  Tomi Lahren (although her words are laden with passion and emotion) lacks the knowledge and experience to effectively communicate and facilitate.  As a millennial in these "progressive" times, Tomi Lahren should be allowing safe spaces for all audiences.  Instead, she attacks minority groups, fabricates historical "facts", and is grossly misinformed on political topics.  Being a millennial, she has been given the opportunity to be a positive and influential voice of our generation yet she instead chooses the path of least resistance and becomes a carbon copy of the Fox network.  Should a biased, misinformed, 23-year-old with no background in law, law degree, life experience, or experience in Government be the political voice of a generation that will change this nation?   So the purpose of this petition is to let Fox News know that our generation will no longer allow an individual to use their platform for nefarious purposes.  Tom Lahren's hate speech against minority groups will no longer be tolerated.  She will learn that although we have freedom of speech, there is no freedom from consequences.  This may not solve the main issue; however, great things have small beginnings.  I know that this petition will be the ember that ignites change so that one day we demand that our media and news outlets will value integrity.   *UPDATE* 7-9-2016 Let me clarify my petition because there are people who are still clearly unware of the multiple purposes. I am aware that TheBlaze is an independent from Fox.. However.. You CANNOT deny Tomi has an affiliation with Fox/ CNN considering her relationship with Glenn Beck and her frequent appearances on Fox news. The purpose of this petition is to not only show the complete disgust that the public has with Tomi Lahren, but to also demand INTEGRITY from all of our news and media outlets... It is apparent that she is trying to get a position with a major news outlet with her radical and racist views.  We are letting Fox, CNN, etc know that where ever she may end up WE WILL NOT STAND FOR THAT EITHER.

Save Person of Interest!!!

Person of Interest is one of the most unique shows on TV today. It has built a large fan base that reaches from America to China to Turkey to France and everywhere in between. We've built great friendships around this show. It entertains us, thrill's us, makes us cry and makes us laugh. It gives us LGBT representation and gives us some of the truest representations of a mental disorder. We've been fighting to keep this show alive and would love to see another network pick it up, even if it's just for one more season. Don't let a show we love so much disappear. And that includes all characters, Reese, Finch, Fusco, Root, Shaw, and Bear! We want either a redo of season 5, an alternate universe, a spin off, anything where we can have the whole cast return.

Katie Rich should be fired.

Katie Rich, writer for NBC's SNL, sent out a tweet on the day of the inauguration stating, "Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter." In reference to the POTUS 10 yr old son, Baron Trump.  Ms Rich has since deleted the post and made her Twitter page private.  All Americans should be sad and sickened at this type of verbal attack and bullying of a 10yr old boy.  It has always been an unspoken rule of civility that young children of the President be off limits. Ms. Rich crossed the line with her comments. Therefore, We petition NBC to take action on this matter. We, the voters and viewers, demand an apology from NBC and for Ms. Rich to be terminated as a writer for SNL.

FIRE Katie Rich from SNL & NBC

On Inauguration Day January 20, 2017, SNL writer Katie Rich posted a picture of President Trump's family on Twitter with a circle drawn around 10 year old Barron Trump and she commented: "Barron will be this country's first homeschool shooter." Online bullying of children (including and especially those in our White House!) by any adult is unnacceptable behavior and should not be tolerated under any circumstances.  If Ms. Rich does not get fired, heftily fined AND issue a written apology to our First Family immediately, NBC should be banned from our White House press room and shunned by our new administration, and SNL should be boycotted into oblivion.

Include Gary Johnson in national Presidential polls

The Commission on Presidential Debates determines whether or not a candidate can be included in the debates based on their performance in five selected national polls. In order to be included in the debates, a candidate must be polling at 15% nationwide. We, the undersigned, believe that Governor Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee for President has a chance to reach that threshold. A recent Fox News poll found Gov. Johnson to have 12% support nationwide and his mainstream media exposure in recent weeks has been unprecedented for a Libertarian Presidential candidate, which means that his support has likely grown. Paired with the fact that polls have consistently shown Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to be among the most polarizing candidates in history, we believe that there is a real opportunity this year for a third-party candidate to make a difference. With the Libertarian Party being the only third party likely to appear on the ballot in all fifty states and the political experience of both Gov. Johnson and his running mate, Governor William Weld, we believe that they are the most likely to capitalize on this opportunity. We urge you to include Governor Johnson in your national polling and help give the American voter another option this November.
