Default I bow to thee

Thanks a bunch to BerkeleyBee and Siva to get this done.

It is not easy to get any article published or get time to present your case on the local TV station. The IV media team is relentlessly pursuing all the media contacts they can but its harder than what most people expect.

The Indian media is always ready to publish articles about that UP scamster boy topping the NASA exam or how Kareena Kapoor loves her new red shoes or how Salman got whistled by Akshay link (argggghhhhh) but is not willing to print an article about us legal immigrants here in the US.

Given that, I am glad that we got all of 120 seconds on primetime television

Default Good Job

Good Work by IV. To get coverage is NOT EASY.

I just saw the clipping after taking it from one of the IV posts in this thread.

For use of others I am putting it here again.

Default Please rate the article corresponding to this interview

Please also rate this news article http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/12085007/ with a 5 star - just to show NBC that there is lot of interest in this area

Whats with the Ron Hira bashing? Just like Shiva's his entire interview was probably whittled down to a few seconds so its not fair to judge him based on that. Besides he was talking about H1B's - a temporary nonimmigrant visa where people do often get screwed by their employers thanks to the visa regulations - we dont know what his views on the legal immigration process are. Lets find out what his (entire) viewpoint and rationale is first.

Default Congrats to Siva and his spouse!

The message was right on target in the short time provided.

I second the idea for every one in IV to rate the article.

It seems that people are confused by the UI to rate it ( just one click on the stars registers your rating). seems that there are a number of misclicks.

For example this article is rated
3.5 out of 159 users.

The top rated article which is also on NBC home page is
4.5 by 110 users

you should be able to vote twice by clearing your cookies.

the only advantage is that it will increase the views on the article and NBC will be more willing for such articles in future.
