Here’s her open letter to Leno, Maher and G.E.:

OPEN LETTER TO JAY LENO, BILL MAHER, & G.E. FROM YOUR ANTI-CENSORSHIP ‘DISRUPTORS’:

Thursday, January 17, 2008

Dear Jay and Bill:

We hope you understand why we interrupted The Tonight Show taping on
Tuesday. It was not a decision taken lightly. We had no idea who was
going to be on the show that day, and it wasn’t a protest against
either of you. Our beef was with NBC / MSNBC and their agenda-driven
censorship.
Our words—“Let Dennis debate”; “GE, NBC, Put impeachment on TV”–should
make it clear that we were protesting MSNBC’s barring Presidential
candidate Rep. Dennis Kucinich from the Democratic debate in Las Vegas
that evening, and we were also demanding that the media stop censoring
calls for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney. (As you probably know,
Kucinich has proposed a resolution to impeach Cheney: HR#799; and
impeachment is part of his campaign). The four of us who were there
included a combination of L.A. National Impeachment Center members, and
Kucinich supporters, acting completely independently from his official
campaign–and certainly we were not connected with the WGA at all; it
never even occurred to us that anyone would think that.
