NPR: TELL THE TRUTH! Coast to Coast Protest on May 14th


Friends of Israel will be holding "NPR: Tell the Truth" demonstrations of
protest outside National Public Radio (NPR) affiliate stations from coast
to coast on Wednesday, May 14, 2003, to express outrage over NPR's biased
coverage of the Middle East.

Each "NPR: Tell the Truth" demonstration is being organized locally by
Jews and Christians who believe that NPR's reporting on the Middle East is
so inaccurate and biased that it poses a threat to Israel's security. The
idea originated with the Boston Israel Action Committee (BIAC), a group
that draws its membership from several Boston-area synagogues.

Demonstrations are being organized in: Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston,
Chicago, Cleveland, Columbus, Des Moines, Denver, Detroit, Fairfield
(CT), Fresno, Houston, Indianapolis, Hartford, Los Angeles, Long Island,
Miami, Milwaukee, Nashville, Newark, New Haven, New York, Philadelphia,
Pittsburgh, Portland (OR), Rochester (NY), St. Louis, St. Paul, San
Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, DC.

We hope that many more communities will organize demonstrations. This is
a unique opportunity to shine a spotlight on the inaccurate and biased
coverage of the Israel on NPR. In the context of demonstrations being
planned in more than 30 cities from coast to coast, even small
demonstrations held outside NPR stations on May 14 will receive
significant coverage from newspapers, radio, and television stations as
the local angle on a significant national story.
