Hey, we need The Daily Show and Colbert Nation back on to get trustworthy news.

Me, I just did the "Pencils2MediaMoguls" thing, lots more here:

Okay, what is Pencils2MediaMoguls?
We’re asking people to use our site to buy pencils to send to the six media moguls who run the six corporate conglomerates.

Why pencils?
A lot of different fan sites were suggesting that people send pencils to networks and studios. United Hollywood and Strike Points met with some of the television showrunners, and together we decided to follow the fans’ lead.

Pencils have become the symbol of our cause: We are putting them down until we get a fair deal.

Symbolism, whatever. Let’s face it — isn’t this kind of a waste of pencils?
We were worried about that too, so we found a vendor who makes environmentally sensitive product: California Republic Stationers. Their pencils are made from sustainably harvested wood, which means they don’t deforest.

We’ll also send the media moguls suggestions about where they can donate the pencils to non-profits that teach kids how to write. After all, the CEOs aren’t writers. It’s not like they can use them.

Re: Pencils Idea to Media CEOs_
I think we should just pirate the airwaves, or flood their mailboxes with bad sitcoms til they reinstate the writers!

This is an even more egregious waste. The pencils are still going to end up in the trash – so it was a waste to recycle them in the first place.
