I don't know whether any of you know about the above organisation, which has
been going for a few months, and is gradually increasing its membership and
functions. On a daily basis, we send each other information about
newspaper/radio/TV programmes which are either good or bad for comment.  We
then respond to the appropriate media source if we wish to do so.  We are
starting to get successful in getting letters printed, seven last week. BBC
reviews their programme content if they have ten or more complaints,
apparently.  We also are joining with appropriate groups to lobby newspapers
and other media organisations about content, and also trying to get funds for
research into things like audience awareness.   We have also formed alliances

when there is a factual error recorded.  The expertise from this discussion

We could forward articles which are particularly relevant to casi, or
