Truth in Media Activism: Letter to Justices

Nov. 21, 2000

To Florida's Disgraceful Supremes:


A Letter from the Truth in Media Editor and Founder to the Florida Supreme Court Justices



November 21, 2000

Dear TiM readers, 

If you followed this evening's developments involving the Florida Supreme Court, then you probably know by now that this UNELECTED judicial body has decided to usurp and override the powers of Florida's elected Legislature; of Florida's elected executive branch, and to punch a perfect chad out of the Florida voter's choice. These justices have just unilaterally changed the rules of the game - AFTER the game had already been played.

Enclosed below is a message that the TiM editor has sent to the justices of the Florida Supreme Court, which is likely to be remembered from now on as the Florida Court of Disgrace. Their respective e-mails are shown below. If you agree with the sentiments of my letter, please join me in writing to them and expressing your own outrage.

We would appreciate it if you would send a copy of your letter(s) to, so we can consider them for a special TiM Readers' Forum on this topic. Thank you.

Bob Djurdjevic, Founder, Truth in Media, Phoenix, Arizona

P.S. For what it's worth, all seven Florida Supreme Court judges have been appointed by Democratic governors.

The Justices of the

Subject: Florida Court of Disgrace

You should be all ashamed of yourselves! Your politically-motivated meddling into an already badly flawed electoral process is disgraceful. You are making our entire country the laughing stock of the world, not just the state of Florida.

More importantly, along with your own, you're destroying the credibility of our courts. Which self-respecting American will ever again respect a decision by a politicized judge? Or the authority of a President who lawyered his way into the White House?

"Your Honors," if you really have any honor - individually or collectively - you should resign forthwith.

    Best regards,

Bob Djurdjevic, Founder, Truth in Media, Phoenix, Ariz.

P.S. For what it's worth, the writer is NOT a member of the Republican Party and did not vote for either Bush or Gore.
