Non-profit Media Matters for America has launched a petition and video asking news media to stop giving GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump a “special platform.”

The video, dubbed “Donald Trump is The Cable Guy,” mashes up audio from Trump interviews with a scene featuring Matthew Broderick  from the movie “The Cable Guy.”

The group complains that Trump is being allowed to call into shows instead of appearing in studio or via satellite. “CBS refused to let Donald Trump call into its morning show. This is a start, but other networks and other shows are still letting Trump call in. Sign our petition, and tell news networks that it’s time to take away Trump’s special privilege,” the petition reads.
