91. Make Music not War

War propaganda threatens to corrupt U.S. media. Why waste time, money and our men?

Those men can be anything they want to be and they are using their time to defend our country.

Billions of American dollars have been used to fight this war. The money can be used here in the U.S. for greater things.

So, I fell that if you want to invest money into something effective, make music, not WAR!

92. Against Danish papers printing blasphemous cartoons

I am against the causing offence to other religions.

In this case the Danish media is causing problems for the common citizens of that country by having Danish products and services boycotted by People of Islamic faith.

We do not need to breed more hatred against the West; we have had too much violence in the last decade.

We want to live in a harmonious society and peace. The Danish media must accept responsibility in which they have caused offence and had initially caused the problem in inciting certain individuals who have passion and love for their faith.

The Danish media is to blame.

93. Give Jimma Times license for its independent Afaan Oromo newspaper in Ethiopia

We, Oromo and other citizens of Ethiopia, demand that the Ethiopian government allow Jimma Times to have license for its independent Afaan Oromo newspaper in Ethiopia.

We are very disturbed about rumors and stories in Finfinne that Jimmaa Times has not been given license despite filing application for many months. The fact that the only Afaan Oromo newspaper in Ethiopia is still the government controlled “Bariisaa” newspaper once again shows how Oromo people CONTINUE to be marginalized and oppressed in the country!!

According to the habesha/Orthodox calendar, it was in the year 1999 that oppressed people of the country saw the Jimma Times website become a rare Ethiopia-based media that is independent, allowing diverse views and news. It would be another BIG mistake by the Ethiopian regime to ban the country’s first independent newspaper that would also distribute News in the ONLY language 35 million Oromo people understand.

Unlike some other newspapers in Ethiopia that are established by politicians, all friends of the newspaper know that the Jimma Times newspaper is owned by NON-Political businessmen and philanthropists. Despite the undemocratic and restrictive nature of the country’s “Press Law,” it is more depressing to witness even newspapers planning to obey the “Press Law” are being denied license by the government!

We, the undersigned, demand the regime to stop denying the Jimaa Times workers their basic rights and to grant them their license as soon as possible!

96. Fair and Unbiased Reporting From Media For John Edwards

The media networks like CNN, Fox News, and many others seem to not report on Former Senator John Edwards, and if they do by some chance report on John Edwards it’s always negative.

I mean for example just recent CNN, MS NBC, and many others, reported on Barack Obama placing 1st in the Iowa Caucuses, and they also reported Hillary Clinton placing 3rd in the Iowa Caucuses, but they never really reported on John Edwards placing 2nd, The only thing they did say was that Edwards was out of the race for President.

Once again after placing 2nd in Iowa, they still reported negatively on John Edwards. I think it’s all because John Edwards is willing to take on the big corporations and their lobbyist and I think that scares them just a little, but that does not give them the right to report biased and unfair on John Edwards.

99. Encouraging media to accentuate the positive

We claim we want to increase positive contributions made by those in our world, but yet we don't protest when our media presents 99 percent of its broadcasts and papers filled with war, crime, and violence.

While it is true that these things are occurring and we need to know about them to encourage change toward peace, why can't we hold our media accountable for showing a more realistic view of us. I request you sign this petition to encourage all media to be required, through their license in journalism, to dedicate at least fifty percent of their contents to positive actions and events in the world. The reasons your support of this petition is crucial follow.

One. It has been shown that media heavily influences our behavior. If its contents continue to accentuate the negative, our young people will learn to value violence. However, if we encourage the media to dedicate at least half of its contents to positive events and actions, we will promote higher quality values of peace and kindness.

Two. It has been scientifically proven that optimism improves health. If we hear more positive news everyday, it will improve individual health, increase mood, and inspire us to act in kindness and peace. Thus, improving the health of our society by requiring media to report positive news daily.

Some other reasons include:

One. Showing positive role models.

Two. Increasing the number and willingness of volunteers.

Three. Maintaining and improving the life and services of charitable organizations who help improve quality of life for those who need assistance.

Four. Promoting peaceful conflict resolutions (right now all the media seem to be showing is crime and use of guns for this. We need to encourage the showing of positive conflict resolution through medium.)

Five. Increasing self-respect and respect for others.

In conclusion, I request that you sign this petition in support of requiring the media, through requirements of journalism licensing, to dedicate at least fifty percent of its coverage to positive news and events. In doing this, we will promote peace, values, respect, altruism, volunteerism, health, and a more prosperous world.

Thank you for taking the time to read and consider this petition.

Thank you for your support to require the media to accentuate the positive for the improvement of our world.

100. Objection against Musharaf and the government of Pakistan!

Black period in Pakistan's history...

03.11.2007:

* disrespected the constitution of 1973
* declared emergency
* suspended and dissolved the judiciary
* banned media

06.11.2007:

* 1000's of people been detained
* 1000's of people harassed and beaten up
* demonstrations trough out the country

10.11.2007:

* 10,000's of people detained
* 10,000's of people harassed and beaten up

14.11.2007:

* Imran Khan arrested, harassed, humiliated by the police

16.11.2007:

* Under extreme pressure from Musharraf and the
government Geo News and Ary Oneworld has been shut
down late Friday night

Generally:

Since the imposition of the emergency in Pakistan, Musharaf have not allowed people to hold demonstrations, public gatherings etc.

When ever or who ever have tried to organize a demonstration have been detained and harassed by the police - not only the organizers but also children, women and elders who are participating in the demonstrations are harassed and detained.

The media are not allowed to show the truth - they were approached by Government to sign a agreement on what they could show on TV - GEO and ARY refused, today, on the 16.11.2007 after tremendous pressure from Musharaf both channels has closed!

Musharaf is doing what ever he can do to hide the truth!

101. Cancel GEO subscriptions

1. Dis-Honest reporting.
All the reporting since last couple of months has been negative for Pakistan. Not a single time any thing positive reported through this channel. It is to the extent that since last 2-3 days in their english tx they are persuading Western public that they should stop all the aid to Pakistan.
Our opinion: No matter what ever rifts are within ourselves we never ask foreign countries to hurt Pakistan financially and economically. Only enemies of Pakistan will do this.

2. Disseminating Anarchy/Chaos/ Confusion:
Since last couple of months. As you can notice even in last 2-3 days all they have reported about protests and only views of people talking against present govt. We agree that Emergency/Martial Law are one of the most dangerous and horrible actions taken by any govt. We all condemn this BUT it does not mean that the so called media portrays like there is major unrest in Pakistan (when it isn"t) and it is at the brink of collapse. This is giving a very alarming and negative picture over here.
In fact you can realize yourself that all these Jalsa juloos are happening in front of the courts. Only a fraction of lawyers are involved or might be majority of lawyers may be involved. There is no other opinion that what ever is happening over there is not good. But on the other hand 99% of the country is open, school, colleges, factories, offices are open. Public seems to be not involved up-until now. This news can only be obtained if you call your home where you will find out that nothing is going on in the cities. We have not seen a single report which says that majority of Pakistan is calm and quite.

At this difficult time we need to advise the civil society / political parties / govt to resolve issues within themselves and join hands with each other to first fight this cancer of religious extremism and fanaticism and hold elections ASAP.

Actually media should play a positive roll to resolve the situation instead of puting more fuel in the fire. Instead media specially GEO TV is determined to de-stablize Pakistan at any cost to please their masters we don"t know where from.

The GEO reporters and anchors are physically and verbally persuading public to come out on streets. This is not the job of media to give an opinion. Their job is to report all the aspects without any prejudices and reservations.


We the concern American Pakistani citizens of USA therefore as the first action choose to UNSUBSCRIBE the anti Pakistani Channel GEO TV with immediate effect and announce to form a watch group to monitor other pakistani channels closely. Please join us in efforts to save Pakistan from this yellow journalism and blackmailing.
We will send a copy of this e-mail to Geo TV and ARY also.

Again, it's good to be a wise ulloo than a stupid loomri. (majority of us have PTV at our homes Al-Hamdolillah).

102. Support Musharraf: Emergency was required

People are encouraged to read through and sign as this is NOT a petition in favor of outright military rule, but one that supports the measures taken by Musharraf to eradicate corruption and place Pakistan on the right path to democracy. As Pakistanis, we must appreciate a man who has confronted corruption and created a system under which the voice of the people can be heard.

Pervez Musharraf has been the centre of a lot of criticism lately, and this petition is an attempt to show support for his vision and rule in Pakistan. We understand some actions by the current government in Pakistan are drastic and some may argue against them, but it is up to us to realize the ground realities and act responsibly in deciding who to support. Opposition parties are exploiting the mass public by using democracy as an excuse to regain power and destabilize a government that has achieved a lot in the last eight years. Religion is also being used by some in the media to incite the public, which has gone about its daily routine with no interest to come out on the streets. Objectivity amongst reporters on international broadcasts of Pakistani news is rare. This is an attempt to show that there is a large movement that supports the President. Outlined below are highlights of Musharraf’s achievements, there is a section on reasons for imposition of emergency rule as well.


POSITION ON OPPOSITION PARTIES

Nawaz Sharif’s incompetent government and Benazir’s corruption (wife of Mr. Zardari who is popularly known in Pakistan as 'Mr. 10%') left Pakistan in a dismal state. Thus prior to Musharraf’s debut on the stage of Pakistani politics in 1999,

* The country was almost bankrupt;
* Pakistan was on the verge of being declared a “failed” and “terrorist” nation;
* It was listed as being the second most corrupt nation in the world (the first being Nigeria)
* During the time of Benazir and Sharif, the KSE 100 index was less than 1300. Now it is over 12000.
* Atrocities such as judicial killings of opponents took place shamelessly throughout Pakistan, particularly in Karachi, for which Benazir and Sharif were both primarily responsible.

MUSHARAF’S ACHIEVEMENTS

Under Musharraf’s regime since 1999, Pakistan has experienced tremendous growth and seen record improvement in its overall condition.

* From being #2 on the list of corrupt nations, Pakistan is now #138 – a remarkable improvement.
* Compared to being nearly bankrupt less than a decade ago, Pakistan now has reserves of close to $16 billion, and is still growing.
* Corruption has been virtually eliminated from the upper levels and significantly reduced in the lower levels.
* Musharraf actively confronted terrorism in Pakistan and employed several schemes to eradicate it from our country.
* Large-scale development is taking place all over Pakistan, with a significant amount of construction going on in Karachi and areas of Baluchistan. Previously, these areas were largely neglected, with Baluchistan left to the mercy of warlords for much of the history of Pakistan.
* Tax recovery is at an all time high.
* Pakistan’s media has flourished with Musharraf’s permittance and encouragement.
* Devolution of power- Musharraf brought the Nazim System and gave powers to the local representatives at the lowest level.
* Women's representation used to be 3.2%. Musharraf made a landmark decision and appointed 33% seats to be reserved for women in all three tiers of the local government and 17% in the national and provincial legislatures. (This also resulted in Pakistan being recognized as the country with the greatest progress in women’s representation within parliament in a comparison study of South Asian politics.)
* President Musharraf was awarded the White Ribbon Man of the Year Award 2006, in recognition of the tremendous support to the cause of women’s rights in Pakistan.
* Pakistan’s relations with India have also significantly improved. Previously, India refused to acknowledge the territory of Kashmir as a 'dispute'. As a result of Musharraf's diplomacy, Kashmir is today acknowledged as a disputed territory and both sides are working towards a peaceful resolution of the conflict.


These are remarkable achievements in an 8 year timeframe. This is not to say that things are perfect; much work still needs to be done. But, Pakistan, under Musharraf, has been heading towards the right direction and this momentum should continue. He has addressed the root cause of problems in the country thus building a foundation for democracy to prosper. The measures taken under this regime are an attempt to reform Pakistani society with a high emphasis on education. One cannot educate a nation overnight; it takes time and honest commitment. We cannot let corrupt politicians ruin 8 years of hard work.

Chairman of the FCC, Kevin J. Martin, has plans to repeal, in two months, a restriction that currently prevents a company from owning a newspaper and a television or radio station in the same city.

This necessary regulation prevents large conglomerates from monopolizing public access to information. Some major conglomerate executives such as Rupert Murdoch have been lobbying for years for reform on these restrictions.

105. Call to promote free press and media development in Ethiopia

This millennium petition is inspired by the unity of Ethiopians following the massacre of 65 Ethiopians by the ONLF rebels and by our courage to face numerous other rebels who are ready to massacre Ethiopians instead of joining the peaceful opposition parties inside the current Ethiopian parliament.

This petition is motivated by a dwindling but surviving hope that international watch dogs are able to one day re-evaluate what role they are playing in the progress of democracy and freedom of press in Ethiopia.

106. Media Should Stop the Sectarian Divisions of Iraq

In the last few years we have noticed a disturbing tendency among media outlets, both western and Arab, to divide Iraq into groups based on the religious affiliations or other sectarian lines.

For example, when Saddam Hussein was taken into court, almost all media outlets referred to the victims as "148 Shi'a," rather than "148 Iraqis", as if the Iraqi government was prosecuting for one side and not the other.

As another example, when the Iraqi national soccer team won the Asian cup in 2007, the media focused on the religious affiliations of the players, as if these religious differences are what matter most in the context of the sport and the victory of the team. All of the players are Iraqis, and they are defending Iraq on the football field where sectarian definitions are irrelevant.

As Iraqis from all over the world, we would like to express to the media that this incessant focus on sectarian divisions when it comes to Iraq reporting is anathema to many Iraqis who really look at Iraq as one nation - not a divided land - and we think that in order to heal Iraq’s wounds, we must stop dividing Iraqis into sects and groups when it is not relevant to the story, and should make every attempt to report on the people and their tragedy as one nation.

As Iraqis, we maintain that most of the violence in Iraq is committed by people who do not care about Iraqis - whether Sunni or Shi'a; they care only about destroying Iraq and exploiting the country economically and/or structurally in order to achieve their goal of dividing the Iraqi people among themselves.

108. Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) awareness in the Media!!

This petition is dedicated to the memory of every adult or child who lost their life to Congenital Heart Defects (CHD).

1 out of 85 babies in the United States of America are born with CHD. **Correction by Dr. Diana Bernshausen of Euless, TX**

Every 15 minutes one of those children pass away from CHD.

1/2 of all CHD babies do not make it to their 1st birthday!!

Congenital Heart Defects are present at birth, and can involve malformations of the heart, valves, arteries, and any other part of the heart/lung area. Congential Heart Defects are not usually discovered until the child shows physical signs or it's too late.

Most pregnant woman are not even told about CHD by their doctors.

This petition was started so that someone in the United States Media would take note and help some of these families and survivors start telling their stories.

Whether it be in television interviews, pubishing or book deals, movies about CHD, or newspaper articles the people of the United States of America have a right to know about the most deadly defect in their country!!

109. Homeless Petition for REAL AID

WE THE HOMELESS OF AMERICA, seek justice and reform in social service programs and grants offered up by the government which are currently involved within the issue of the Homeless. We seek also reform within criminalization of those without homes, those who are staying in cars because of lack of housing, lack of money and or money not being used to obtain real homes for those on the street so that they can get a real start again in America.

The Homeless are forced into the street, are being told when there is no shelter programs available that they can not go into parks and or stop anywhere on the street without criminalization.

Because they get no money and are afforded nothing within the same measure as United State Programs allow those from foreign nations we are seeking that a special investigative panel be appointed to investigate allegations of fraud mishandling of state and federal grants and also place more money into housing aid and financial assistance without bias, and or creating criminalization via identifying those on the streets which has make homelessness a label to criminalize instead of offering real assistance.

110. Setting The Daily Record Straight

Hitz Radio UK is an internet radio station based in Ayrshire, Scotland founded by Ryan Dunlop in January 2006. The station has become infamous for the publicity it has gained in United Kingdom national newspapers, and for claims that it is fully licensed for internet broadcasting, that it has hundreds of thousands of listeners, and that it employs over 40 people. The station has also claimed that it has a projected turnover of £37,000,000.

Many of Hitz Radio's claims have been disputed, and many of them have been proven wrong by a variety of media communities.

Hitz Radio was launched as a single-stream, internet-only station by Ryan Dunlop on January 16th, 2006, branded as "Hitz Radio Unsigned". In order to launch the station, Dunlop used £20,000 of his father's money and a £250 grant from the Prince's Trust.

Since the station's launch, numerous additional streams have been added, including Hitz Radio Glasgow, Hitz Radio London and Hitz Radio Xtra, the latter being an indie station, although most of the output on each stream is the same.

In February 2007, Hitz Radio begun to gain exposure in the national press, with the Daily Record reporting on February 26th that Hitz Radio had become a radio empire "with five million fans".

The following week the Sunday Times reported that Hitz Radio had roughly 250,000 unique listeners, and that the station had 40 employees. In the Scotsman newspaper, however, the station was reported to have "five million listeners at any one time" Dunlop also appeared on BBC Scotland, Scotland Today and BBC Radio 2 to promote the station. In early March 2007, just after the original articles appeared, the station's website had only 25 forum members.

The forum was quickly scrapped after this became known. However as of 24th May 2007, the Hitz Radio UK MySpace site had attracted less than 1700 profile views and just over 200 friends since early March 2006. This suggests the claims of the number of people visiting the station's website, listener numbers and general public awareness of the station to be false.

In May 2007, Ryan Dunlop was awarded the "Business Hero 2007" award by the Daily Record for his work on Hitz Radio, and is the Shell Livewire "Young enterpreneur of the year" finalist for the Dumfries and Galloway area, although allegations his claims may be fraudulent are currently being investigated by Shell Livewire.

His eligibility for both awards is disputed due to his frequently changing his stated year of birth on both his personal website, and articles on other sites about him. The terms & conditions for entry to the Shell Livewire competition also includes the point that the business "must be legal".

As of 24 May 2007 inquiries are ongoing into the names of the Company's Directors and the age of Mr Ryan Dunlop. Even if the company is found to be compliant with various legislation for private limited companies, it has been proved that the radio station has been operating illegally since, by breaching copyright or trademarks from various sources.

112. No More Harry News - Keep his deployment secret

Currently there is increased speculation that Prince Harry, who is a member of the British Royal Family, may be sent to Iraq as part of the ongoing British Army Deployment there.

The media has recently published more than one article related to the possible whereabouts of Prince Harry and his regiment, as well as information that could lead to the insurgents or terrorist cells to conduct potentially dangerous and lethal acts against the Prince and his fellow soldiers.

There is a need for the media to be banned from reporting specific details of Harry's possible deployment in Iraq or other war zones.

Because of Harry's high profile, it's feared that he would be a target of those who are currently causing mayhem in Iraq. If this were to happen, then Prince Harry's fellow soldiers would also be in danger of losing their lives.

Please support this petition for a press agreement to protect Prince Harry and his fellow soldiers.

114. Make the Media Stop the Epidemic it Started

Dear Sir or Madam:

SUBJECT: EATING DISORDERS IN THE MEDIA

My name is Katie Morton and I am writing because I would like to see a part of one of the CBS Evening News shows to be about eating disorders in the media. As a teenage girl I am deeply disturbed by the growing number of people that are affected by eating disorders on a daily basis. Due to the media many girls result to not eating or eating very little in order to look like the stars they see on television.

Many girls in today’s society look at the skinny, beautiful models and actresses as role models. It appears that these women have everything, money, fame, and good looks. They think that these women are in control but what most girls do not realize is that these women are really spinning out of control because many of them have an eating disorder. “In America young girls have been so obsessed with dieting that they will take extreme measures by the time they are ten years old” (Erlanger).

Almost every girl at some point in her life has looked in the mirror and thought that all they saw was fat. By being skinny it shows that you have control over your life. Even I have been one of those girls who look at themselves in the mirror and think they are fat. Unlike many girls I have never taken drastic measures to change the way I look. All I have done is exercised significantly and eaten healthy foods. Like every girl in America I wanted to be like the women that I see on television.

“Five to ten million people have eating disorders nation wide; that includes eleven percent of high school students and up to nineteen percent of college students. Eighteen to twenty percent of people with anorexia will die within twenty years of diagnosis” (Lauren Gold). This is a statistic that must be changed for the benefit of today’s youth. Television is the way most individuals get information in the United States; therefore it is the media’s responsibility to portray a more realistic image for young girls.

I believe that it would be a great idea for CBS to run a show on this growing epidemic in America. Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,
Katharine Morton

It has become a sexual highway in every area of marketing in the media. Our males do not know who they are they think that material is what makes them with no respect? It is time for the people of America to take a stand. Enough is Enough. Our children are depending on our voices. Soon we will become old and this is what we will be left with to take care of us?
