For far too long, I have heard Greens talk about being given short shrift by main stream media. It has become such a truism that most Greens don't even try.
Let me show you something what can be done if you try. Laura Wells in the Sacramento Bee. It can be done. All you have to do is become the story. In Laura's case, part of that story is having been the top vote getter for any Green in a CA partisan race. That was as a candidate for Controller in 2002 when she out polled the top of the Green ticket, Peter Camejo.
There is no secret to this. Mainstream Media is always looking for a story. So, give them one. If you like this about Laura, then go visit her web site, become a fan of Laura on facebook, follow her on twitter.
More importantly, take some time to Feel the spirit. Bill Moyers had it right. We don't have the money to compete with a Meg Whitman or a Steve Poizner or a Jerry Brown with maybe $7 Mil in the bank. But now one works their ass off like a Green. We have to, but that is what is going to win elections and, who know, maybe make a heroine out of Laura.
