Feathers of Hope is a network of ordinary citizens committed to advocating for the removal and replacement of Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House, thereby diminishing the power and influence of MAGA extremists in the chamber.
We have been urging moderate Republicans and Democrats in the House of Representatives to form a temporary bipartisan majority voting bloc for the purpose of passing a motion to “vacate the chair” and elect a new Republican Speaker who owes nothing to the minority MAGA group.

Media Contact Information
It is more difficult than one would expect to contact specific columnists at major newspapers or cable news stations hosts. In researching this, we found that the format for contacting individuals at the corporate level is typically first name or initial, dot, last name @ nytimes.com or washpost.com, or wsj.com, etc. We’ve used this formula in the past when writing to columnists, and the emails were not bounced back, but it’s not known whether they were delivered to their intended recipients.
If anyone has better information, please let us know in the comments section, or by emailing me directly: JerryWeiss@Substack.com
Another option is to write a Letter to the Editor and specify “Attn: (Columnist Name)” Also, don’t overlook columnists at your local newspaper, many of whom are syndicated.

Rachel Maddow is the only MSNBC host whose email address is easily found — don’t know why. But the format suggests that perhaps Joy Reid, Chris Hayes and others can be reached by using joy@msnbc, chris@msnbc, etc. Just guessing here.
CNN website does not provide any contact information. If anyone can find out more, please let us know in the comment section or by emailing me directly at JerryWeiss@Substack.com.
