As WND reported, the "Operation: Can You Hear Us Now?" webmaster, who has chosen to remain nameless, launched his website on Sept. 15. After only one week, he is experiencing an outpouring of support from citizens interested in hosting and attending rallies.

"People are really psyched up," he told WND today. "There are thousands of new visitors coming to the site daily."

The operation website states, "Imagine: There was a million-plus person march on Washington, and no one reported it. It did not happen."

It's not just Obama who's lying. It's his Minion Media, too!

The operation website asks citizens to rally outside "left-wing media outlets" on Oct. 17 and lists the following locations as suggestions:

CNN – One CNN Center, Atlanta, Ga.
NBC's "Nightly News with Brian Williams" – 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, N.Y.
ABC's "World News with Charles Gibson" – 7 West 66th St., New York, N.Y.
ABC News' "Nightline" – 7 West 66th St., New York, N.Y.
ABC News' "This Week" with George Stephanopoulos – 7 West 66th St., New York, N.Y.
CBS' News' "Evening News" with Katie Couric – 524 West 57th St., New York, N.Y.
CBS' "The Early Show" – 524 West 57th St., New York, N.Y.
ABC News' "Good Morning America" – 7 West 66th St., New York, N.Y.
MSNBC's "Today" Show – 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, N.Y.
"Dateline NBC" – 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, N.Y.
MSNBC's "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" – 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, N.Y.
MSNBC's "Meet The Press" – 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, N.Y.
New York Times – 620 Eighth Ave., New York, N.Y.
Los Angeles Times – 202 W. 1st St., Los Angeles, Calif.
Atlanta Journal Constitution – 72 Marietta St. NW, Atlanta, Ga.
Seattle Times – 1120 John St, Seattle, Wash.
Get ready for Oct. 17! Visit the one and only "tea party store" now.

The webmaster said citizens should connect through tea party groups, Facebook, Twitter, blogs and message boards to spread the word. He also said organizers must pick the best times and local media locations for the Oct. 17 events.

"Some people messaged me and asked why not a more symbolic day," he said. "I say, why shouldn't we be the ones to make it a symbolic day, a day in history the press will never forget?"

The operation is planning a coordinated e-mail, phone and fax campaign against four major media outlets with the simple message: "Can you hear us now?"

Attendees are encouraged to bring signs, banners, flags and voices to the events. Make no mistake, the webmaster said, there is no "Astroturf" springing from his website – it's just another grassroots movement catching fire.

"I'm just one guy, not an activist," he told WND. "I have no sponsors, no bankroll, no agenda – except to help put a nail in the mainstream-media coffin."

these media types will not be able to gloss over the mob protesting outside their doors,but i bet a few will try.I believe these protesters will be mostly middle America as well,quite a bit different than the paid protesters that were at the G20 summit in Pennsylvania(wonder how many of them were flown in from wherever just to get gassed?).

i tried being reasonable,i didn't like it, NRA LIFE MEMBER,USMC VETERAN
