On Feb. 26 – 27, major news networks blacked out coverage of more than 100,000 people gathering in Wisconsin for what has become a historic battle for working people in America.

In the absence of any mainstream TV coverage, @brandzel live streamed events from his phone for a huge online audience.

In 2010, @CNN embedded a press corps in their custom-painted “CNN Express” press bus to follow the TeaParty Express around the country , reporting 3-4 times DAILY on the activities of the corporate-funded Tea Party Express. Hundreds showed up to those Tea Party events. Tens of thousands are arriving each hour in Madison. So, it must be asked, where is @CNN?

We demand that @CNN and other mainstream media outlets provide LIVE, round-the-clock coverage of the events unfolding in Wisconsin this week.

CNN has not responded for over 3 years.
