Let’s outsmart them. Let’s proactively engage media. Don’t try to ignore this as silence will backfire. If some body does something violent, God Forbid, Fox will be all over it.

I’ll watch the full episode and update.

Please share your thoughts. Let all the discussion be here. We’ll brainstorm and then will act, iA.
