Our Petition

We, the undersigned, support THE PLAN.

THE PLAN strives to bring truth to all forms of journalism by calling on media outlets in all categories to be accountable for statements made by unverified sources. We also call on said media outlets to cease their payments for photos provided by paparazzi and by “fans” when said photo is taken of someone who is obviously not aware of or does not desire to be the focus of the photo.  By paying for these photos you have created a situation that is no longer safe for the celebrity, the paparazzi or the people who happen to be around at the time the photograph is being taken.   It is our belief that such photos are an invasion of privacy and the person or persons that are the subject of such photos should be protected by the law.  As a result, we will use all methods of communication available to effectively communicate how tabloid journalism lures in consumers with unverified, sensational and salacious headlines for money.  Additionally, we will work toward changing the laws as they now stand to protect the people affected by material reported by media outlets.

We wish to see the following changes in your policies

  1.  Your site must cease the practice of paying for photographs—whether they are taken by self-proclaimed journalists, paparazzi, or fans.
  2. Your site must cease to publish stories that have unsubstantiated claims and or unnamed sources.
  3. Your site must cease the practice of  printing stories that encourage anger and hate

Until such time as we see significant changes in your practices, we will cease to visit your site and will boycott products of all advertisers that sponsor your site.
