Hi Tulip, I sent an email to 60 Minutes several years ago, and I was totally ignored. I would suggest two things. First, send it via hardcopy snailmail, and second get as many Aussies to send a letter as possible, preferably in the same week. Maybe we should be thinking of this as a campaign. I have trouble sending a physical letter, but there may be ways around that - or some of us could send it via email anyway. On the email side, I don't recall whether it was real email or one of those fake limited ones they put on websites, with word limits and so on. Bye, Alex
Sure would be fantastic.
Might be good to mention the "Under Our Skin" video and also the Burzynski Movie. Just so they understand it is affecting everybody and not just us ME/CFS'ers?
Can I just say......I posted this because I feel like it's something *I* need to do and I don't mean to be rude, but I DON'T want to do it as a group nor did I post here asking for permission to do it. I AM doing it, I am just going to take my time so I get the info right. I have no plans to mention XMRV because I don't think it has anything to do with ME. I can not see 60 minutes giving a flying crap about patient stories to be honest, the last story they did was not on patient stories, it just wouldn't drag in the viewers. 60 minutes love a juicy controversial story and that's what I am planning on giving them, if they reject it that's life.
Francelle, I agree oslers web is good, but I can't imagine a producer sitting down to read it sadly. There are a few short youtube vids that have all that stuff in them though and historic cheney footage, so I will give them that.
