    I am too sick right now to do anything, but here's some info I gleaned.

    I also discovered that the best way to search for contact information is to google for "news tips" without the quotes. And/or search the name of a news outlet plus those two words.

    Also, attached is how to contact Washington Post

    If you have a newspaper you would like me to contact, please post a link to their page that explains how to contact them. I already have a letter written.

    We need to get our hands on a ready-made email contact list for media including newspapers and health blogs. I hope that other allied disease groups have this such as GWI and Lyme. I have started making contacts in these groups. If anyone else can do this, it would be great. at some point we can ask them if they have these lists.

    I have started a thread here which includes a list that Wally provided. It has been stickied. If you want to add more press contacts to that thread, I can work them into the intial post. Please tag me when you do so. We really should have all of these contacts in one place.

    Kina. :)

    Something is wrong with their contact page. I've tried two browsers and it is not accepting my text as I type it.

    I wrote something very short to them but included a number of links with more info; Hopefully the problem you encountered is just a temporary glitch. Thank you for trying and for contacting others as well!
