Become a Truth Tracker: How to Comment on News Stories

Truth-Tracker-300x111.jpgCommenting on news stories (both positive and negative) about the attacks on public service workers is easy and important. Feedback can help balance out a story, correct myths about public employees and influence other readers, and even reporters who typically follow the comments on their stories.

When you see a story in print, go to the website of the media outlet where the story originally appears. At the bottom of each story is usually a place where readers can leave comments. If you are leaving a comment for the first time on a site, you may have to register.

The following are some general talking points about the attacks on public service workers. However, you should feel free to use your own words and personal experiences.

Help make sure that everyone in this country understands that:

• Public service workers did not create the economic crisis and should not be the scapegoats for Wall Street and right-wing forces who want to deflect attention away from their own greed and irresponsibility.
 
• Making targets of public service workers won't create jobs or rescue state budgets.
• The U.S. cannot benefit if states and localities join a race to the bottom on salaries and benefits for private and public sector workers.

I have to say that for the past few of hours i have been hooked by the impressive articles on this blog. Keep up the wonderful work.

We think the "trouble makers" and solidarity fists are pathetic crooks that want to "spread the wealth" and attain more power. Stay up North !

The silent majority is about to take a stand and be heard.

I would love to make comments,especially in light of the attacks on Public Health Nurses.
