The Los Angeles Times is reporting on yet another organized effort enacted to protest the cancellations of All My Children and One Life to Live. This time it's Rally For AMC and OLTL that's generating buzz. The LA Times' Show Tracker blog spoke with Deanna Paige Uranga, a 43-year-old SoCal nurse, who organized the Facebook campaign, currently boasting over 3,000 members.
“We have a lot of passion. We’re focused. We’re not deviating from the plan,” said Uranga, who has been watching “AMC” since she was 7. “We’re doing this for us, for our mothers, for our grandmothers. Soap opera fans have negative stereotypes. But it’s just like being an avid reader. This has been one grand book that we have been watching for decades. We do not want this book to end.”
Neither do we, honey bunches of oats, neither do we! Show Tracker went on to report about a new effort to get Novartis Consumer Health, makers of Excedrin, to follow Hoover's lead in pulling advertising from ABC. I don't think anything has generated this much bad publicity for The Mouse House since Song of the South.
