But maybe I'm wrong
That's kinda what I was thinking. The Women on the View certainly won't admit that what they said and did were inappropriate and WRONG. They're too self centered to be able to change their "View".

Its going to be the OTHER media, not ABC, not The View itself, that will have the biggest impact. I'm just busting to read this NY Times article that's in the works!!!!!

OK, I'm trying to keep in touch with this while I have a mental day at work - did I see mention of a Yahoo group or site for this event? Can I see the media kit? Ya know, later - once y'all have buttoned up your bras and gone home for junior's nap, so I can vicariously participate? Let me know. Sorry if I missed this in a previous post.

Do they want the negative publicity though???

I was thinking that same thing, that they won't want to draw attention to the fact that they have said some extremely offensive, not to mention naive things regarding breastfeeding. However, their PR department, might suggest that they address the issue as to not amplify the negative publicity.

Hopefully so....

That's the way it is looking so far. I missed the first 10 min, b/c I could not find my tv remote . However, from the sound of it, they are completely ignoring it. I am hoping, *maybe* they will at least bring it up on tomorrow's show? Hoping to watch the news and see if the media covered it.

I did notice all of the "ladies" were well covered up on top today *snicker*

But wheres the logic in it being ok to show a steamy sex scene on their show but not to NIP? grr

I had thought, if they were smart, they would have *used* our nurse-in for publicity - I mean, how many fricking times have I typed "The View" during this, and went to the ABC website, etc. Its all publicity for them - look how many of us are watching? They could have used the contraversy to increase viewership.

(look at all the coverage that horrible Paris Hilton burger commercial got - my dh never did see the commercial but he saw it on the news and other shows several times!)


Yeh, I think it will be the non-TV media that will cover it.


The Yahoo group is http://groups.yahoo.com/group/nycnursein/

Any mention of the nurse in?

I don't think they mentioned it on the show (should be ashamed : ), but they are bound to mention it on the news. I'm TIVOing it just in case. Let me know if I need to watch it.

I just heard from a NYC mom that I know, who actually lives across the street from the Nurse-in site. (she can see if from her window)
She said:

"It's so exciting! Okay, I just stopped home for a moment. Hard for me
to hang out for long b/c my son got so restless there (as I said, he
thought he'd be talking in person to these people!).

I got some wonderful beautiful pictures. I can't estimate how many
are there but it looks to be at least 150 or so? And that was just in
the first 1/2 hour. Mothering said I can write a write-up and provide
photos so I will do that ASAP. I tried to find Ashley but coulnd't in
the crowd. I think she got there late b/c of traffic.

Anyway, lots of sling-wearing, breastfeeding mommies there! I wish I
could send pics via this list. Janice, do you have broadband or
something else? I can send you a few offlist - they are fairly big
files though.

Christine"

I will get the pictures and post them on the Yahoo site

Nursing in the audience-would have been great

Oh how I WISH that I had thought of this sooner and then someone in NY could have done it. Wouldn't it have been great is some of the Mommies had gotten tickets and nursed in the audience??? That would have been AWESOME!!
I could just see it:

I removed the links to the photos for now - they don't belong to me - and the owner needs to decide which ones will be used by Mothering.com for a write-up on the event that she is doing.

Hopefully we'll put the link back up shortly - anyone who has the link PLEASE do not download or distribute these photos!
