And that is what they are doing. More people will hear the message on those types of nationally followed shows, then every 10 minutes on TMZ. I, for one, have never watched it and I am sure that I am not alone.Well, if they got grief (sorry to hear that--wish people were more polite), at least they still were able to express their opinions.
And now, they certainly have plenty of access to media to get their thoughts out there. (Ever watch TMZ? They chase celebrities all over the place--they'd love to get an interview on any topic a celebrity wants to talk about.)
Especially with the internet now, it's easy for them to reach millions, if they want to.
