Support Bob Simon "60 Minutes"

Action Alert

Your actions will ensure the future of truthful journalism Newsman under attack for his fair program on Palestine

On Jan. 25, Bob Simon of CBS' 60 Minutes asked a simple question: "Is Time Running Out for a Two-State Solution?" For one of the first times in mainstream broadcast media history, 60 Minutes aired an insightful, honest portrayal of the humiliation, hardships and travel restrictions Israel imposes upon Palestinians on a daily basis.

Simon's segment showed the harsh reality on the ground in Palestine - a view most Americans never get to see. The segment highlighted the cruelties of the separation barrier, and the humiliation families undergo when the Israeli military appropriates their homes and keeps them under house arrest. He exposed the truth behind illegal settlements as part of a plan to expel Palestinians from their homeland. Viewers also got a glimpse of how Palestinians' freedom of movement is severely restricted because of numerous checkpoints.

Simon exhibited sheer bravery in bringing this story to his American public. But now he is under EXTREME ATTACK. The Unity Coalition for Israel and other Zionist groups have started a campaign to barrage CBS, Simon, his producer and advertisers with complaints and economic threats to boycott advertisers who support 60 Minutes and CBS.


We need to encourage CBS, Bob Simon and their colleagues to continue to report the truth. We also need to let their advertisers know how much we appreciate and want this kind of news coverage.

Please call CBS, Bob Simon, his producer and each advertiser on this list and let them know how much you support Simon's segment. When talking with CBS, please request they produce similar truthful shows. If no one answers, leave a message. Remember to speak clearly and to remain calm and polite.
