Petition: ABC NEWS: FIRE JON KARL

This petition will be delivered to ABC NEWS:

We, The People have a Constitution that names the media as our Fourth Estate, and worthy of Constitutional protections. When our media peddles lies as truth for ideological ends, it misinforms & disinforms the People & undermines the Democracy which we are pledged to defend. Such acts deserve NO Constitutional protection. http://fair.org/extra-online-articles/a-right-wing-mole-at-abc-news/

To:

ABC NEWS

Fire Jon Karl


Sincerely,


http://www.change.org/petitions/abc-news-fire-jon-karl

2. Don't hold your breath for Jon or ABC to give up their source.....

Jon knowingly fudged his report and misled the nation with his falsehoods into believing the WH was involved in a Benghazi coverup.


Even the best reporter can get played by a source with an ax to grind, but by presenting that source’s misinformation as a series of direct quotes from emails that the source made up, Jonathan Karl bought and paid for the consequences, and so did ABC News. They both owe their viewers, and this White House, an apology.

5. Today. Act with honor. For a change.

Anti-American, lying, Right-wing Republican Propaganda Pimps should have no place on network news. Fire this propaganda pimp, and hire a real journalist. For a change.

6. If Jon Karl plagiarized an article for a major paper like the NYT.....

would he be (at the very least) suspended while the paper discusses disciplinary action or dismissal?

7. A promised boycott would have more effect, I think.

A boycott until the news arm apologizes and fully explains what they did wrong. They will simply dig in their heels and refuse to do anything if they're pressured to fire someone specific.



Stop looking for heroes. BE one.
