A single letter to the editor from someone portraying themselves as "Ellie Light" appeared in over 50 newspapers, from large to small town. This letter seems to have gotten a green light from someone at the top to appear in all of these papers in a mass propaganda initiative. There is simply no way with the many letters that editors get that this single letter would appear in so many papers without someone at the top ordering it to be so.
So now in this country we have a cabal working the newspapers, as if that wasn't clear enough from the election with all of their pro-Obama "stories". This one though can not be hidden. These imbeciles actually thought that they could pull one over on the American people and that they would read this letter "from an average American" who supports Obama and maybe change their tune.
Some have noticed that the majority of the papers are Gannett Company owned.
I would just like to point out that the name "Ellie" means "Light" in Greek, as any baby name book can tell you. I originally heard the name and instantly thought it was an anagram for something, but looking into it could find no complete letter usage, though the words "lie" and "hill" and "get" appear. I don't believe the name itself is a way to track where it is coming from or will give us any insight into who the person is.
Here is an interesting bit of information that was posted on Oct 12, 2007 at MyDD (a progressive website) by writer Shai Sachs under the title "Newspaper ownership and conservative dominance of op-ed pages".
(Tipped by Ruth at Illegal Protest)
In the post it contains mention of the dominance of conservatives on op-ed pages and that Sachs thinks that there should be a secret op-ed company set up to counter this across the country. Is that what we are seeing now? If so how long has this been going on with no one noticing?
A couple of weeks ago, I commented on the Media Matters report on conservative dominance of newspaper op-ed pages. At the time, I wrote that it could be possible for a liberal entrepreneur to establish an op-ed syndicate for progressive writers which competes with the titans of the opinion industry ...
Regardless of the cause of conservative bias in op-ed pages, I'm still curious about, the possibility of establishing a progressive op-ed syndicate. Such a syndicate could do a great deal to strengthen the progressive movement.
There is more information on this - and looking into who Ellie Light could be - over at Riehl World View, Patterico's Pontifications and Hot Air where they call Ellie an "Obama Astroturfer". Some commenters simply call Ellie a spammer, but I think it goes deeper than that.
A bit of information on the mass media in todays world:

The Print Media After television news, daily newspapers are the most influential information medium in America. Sixty million of them are sold (and presumably read) each day. These millions are divided among some 1,500 different publications. One might conclude that the sheer number of different newspapers across America would provide a safeguard against Jewish control and distortion. However, this is not the case. There is less independence, less competition, and much less representation of our interests than a casual observer would think. The days when most cities and even towns had several independently owned newspapers published by local people with close ties to the community are gone. Today, most "local" newspapers are owned by a rather small number of large companies controlled by executives who live and work hundreds or ever thousands of miles away. The fact is that only about 25 per cent of the country's 1,500 papers are independently owned; the rest belong to multi-newspaper chains. Only a handful are large enough to maintain independent reporting staffs outside their own communities; the rest depend on these few for all of their national and international news.
