The most important thing you can do is to contact CBS and voice your disgust about Dan Rather. Second, about CBS's anti-Bush taint, and third, send media links to the controversy to the advertisers and lodge a complaint with the advertisers that they must repudiate the 60 Minutes hit piece. Do they want their products associated with a politically motivated hatchet job which turns out to be a fraud?
CBS 60 Minutes Hit Piece on Bush
This should be enough to put a LOT of heat on CBS if you're willing to do the work. Complain to CBS advertisers. Most of these are advertisers that were involved with the 60 Minutes slam on Bush, but hey, complain to them and ask for them to pull their advertising from the Bush Hating CBS...

"Dear Home Depot...Due to your advertising support for 60 Minutes ...Sears and Lowe's will now get all of my business instead."
In the interest of effectiveness, I think it would be a good idea for all of us to not overplay our hand; in this case, to appear reasonable.
Specifically, I mean to specifically state something like: ...until I personally have received your assurance that you have CEASED advertising on 60II, I will shop at OSH/(your local chain) instead, THOUGH THEIR SELECTION IS NOT AS GOOD, AND IN FACT THEIR EMPLOYEES ARE LESS TRAINED, (emphasis for you, not them).
See what I mean? Anyone who has worked with the public knows that there will ALWAYS be a segment who will whine no matter *what* you do-- we should distance ourselves from that portion. Just a thought.
