You would need to be more specific than that, and establish that you have a large enough following to matter, if you want to affect anything.
First you need a core group, signed up, with addresses, if you want to be taken seriously.
Secondly, you need a way to inspire larger numbers of people to go along with your plans. You will need very large numbers, as the advertisers think
in terms of millions.
Next you need a focused demand that can reasonably be met, such as that a particular station show a particular educational "truther" video. And it
had better be good. Don't bother asking for prime time viewing; you won't get it.
Boycotting even just one station won't work, too many people are addicts to their favourite programs.
However, boycotting a major advertising sponser for a week will affect the station. You would need to let that sponsor know they are being boycotted
and why, and also let other advertisers know. You must have a measurable impact on sales for that week, or you will be laughed at from then on.
Once you prove you have muscle, you can ask a large advertiser who seems co-operative to pressure the station with you, on the understanding you can
reward them with additional sales. Choose well dressed, well spoken representatives and arrange meetings, learn how to win people over and how to
Remember, advertisers are the media's life-support, the Johns who support media whoredom. Show muscle, very nicely and sweetly, to these Johns, if
you want to affect any media outlet.
