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.
Renew Nashville for season 5
It is REALLY heartbreaking for us to say it but our beloved Nashville was canceled today by ABC! We need to save this fan favorite show!!
Never have Cris Collinsworth commentate on another Philadelphia Eagles game
Cris Collinsworth is the most biased and horrible commentator ever. Being a Philadelphia Eagles fan and having to listen to him constantly talk about the Patriots and hardly ever the Eagles during the game made it almost unbearable. As a professional he has a duty to if not be unbiased at least try to make the game enjoyable for all viewers. His constant fawning over Tom Brady and the Patriots the entire game was disgusting, making it sound like he was a local Boston radio personality and not a commentator for a nationally syndicated football game. His performance brought back recent memories of the horrible job Pete Morelli and his officiating crew did against the Panthers earlier in the year. Please NBC discipline him or at the very least keep him to only commentating on Patriot games who he so very much loves.
What are you thinking? Renew Hannibal.
The fans want more Hannibal. Period.
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.
Provide Media Coverage for our US Citizens in the Virgin Islands Disaster Relief Efforts
Over 110,000 American citizens live in the United States Virgin Islands. The Islands of St. Thomas and St. John have suffered devastating destruction to their homes, businesses, restaurants, resorts, and overall infrastructure. With little to no internet capabilities, no electricity and running water, as well as communication challenges the residents have months and months of rebuilding ahead. Major news outlets and media sources have given intermittent, if any, coverage at all to this dire situation. Relief efforts are finally coming in, but more coverage of this situation is desperately needed. Many of us don't live on island but hold a special place in our hearts these people and their home. Fundraising efforts are underway, but we need more exposure to make this a success. These people are American citizens, and they need our help! Please help us secure more media coverage of their needs and fundraising opportunities. All we are asking is to include these relief efforts in the landscape of the overall broadcasting. Those wishing to donate can find three reputable organizations here: St. John Community Foundation: https://stjohncommunityfoundation.com St. John Rescue, Inc.: www.stjohnrescue.com/donate St. John Animal Care Center: http://www.stjohnanimalcarecenter.com/donate
Change USA Gymnastics Leadership in Wake of Sex Abuse Scandal
Please sign our petition to protect children from sexual abuse. In March of 2017 we appeared on CBS 60 Minutes and told the nation our very personal stories of physical, emotional and sexual abuse inflicted upon us by USA Gymnastics and their former National Team Doctor Larry Nassar. Since then more than 140 girls and women have come forward to report alleged incidents of sexual abuse that are strikingly similar to ours. The current leadership of USA Gymnastics failed in its responsibility to protect child athletes from sexual predators and failed to alert authorities to reports of sexual abuse as required by law. Olympic level gymnastics has become a big business funded by some of America’s largest corporations and overseen by the United States Olympic Committee (USOC). Change is being made in the leadership in major companies when sex abuse survivors step forward and say, “#Metoo,” but this hasn’t happened yet in USA Gymnastics. USA Gymnastics Chairman Paul Parilla, Vice Chairman Jay Binder and Treasurer Bitsy Kelley have focused their attention on money and medals while USA Gymnastics is attempting to cover up the largest child sex abuse scandal in the history of sports. They must be replaced by people who will put the health and safety of athletes first. Please sign this petition now. Demand a leadership change at USA Gymnastics.
