just posted muff4

Everyone needs to post a comment to get CNN's attention. The video has been viewed quite a bit, which is great! Post comments!!!!!

Also, I do suggest downloading this video and sending it off to friends, family, media, newspapers, TV stations, etc. It is professionally done and gives the best overview of our disease, efforts, issues, etc.
It does capture one's attention and keeps it which is pretty amazing for people like me who have so little ability to pay attention!! Grabs and keeps the viewers attention and I think CNN and other TV, newspapers will see that as well. DB did their work for them and they will see that.

Again DB: Great work. Really good and I have watched it over and over and am still amazed and impressed.

Thanks Muffin. I don't know what else we can do to get CNN to do an in depth report on CFS/XMRV, but if anyone has ideas please post them here.

Also, I want to let you all know that when you post a comment on the ireport page, you should NOT INCLUDE ANY LINKS IN YOUR COMMENT, or it will be rejected. Several people have had this happen, including me, so please keep this in mind.

I have had problems trying to post to CNN so maybe others have too.

When I register, it says I'm already registered (don't remember doing that) and when I try to sign in, it won't recognize it. Have tried several times since you posted this. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow.

This sucks.

I just dropped CNN a note saying:
Several people have written to me complaining that they are unable to leave comments on my Ireport page. They are either unable to register or when they do register, it says they are already registered... and when they try to sign in, it won't recognize it. Please look into this.

I will keep you posted on what they write back.

Thanks so much Finch! I got a note back from tech support at CNN, and it sounds like they fixed the problem that people were having with the registration there.

I am planning on sending Anderson Cooper a copy of the video on disk this week, and appealing to him to do a story about CFS/XMRV.

So PLEASE POST A COMMENT SOON! The more people, the better. It will show that there is an interest in this topic.
