Pathetic 15 person left wing “rally” scores U-T media coverage
The U-T ran a story today (Monday) covering the Sunday downtown protest against the evil-Koch brothers and other rich folks reportedly meeting in an unknown area hotel to discuss funding limited government candidates and causes. Fair enough. Political rallies and protests by every side deserve media coverage.
But a FIFTEEN PERSON protest? Come ON, man!!
“Rally targets Koch brothers’ political influence”
Indeed, the rally was organized by a PHOENIX, AZ Occupy activist. He was the main spokesperson at the pathetic “event.” So at most, 14 misguided locals turned out, in a county of over three million people.
Questions for the U-T (and the media):
- If I can get (drum roll) SIXTEEN people to attend a protest, can I get a U-T story detailing my concerns?
- If I get (bigger drum roll) ONE HUNDRED people to show up, can I score some front page, above-the-fold publicity for my cause?
- Where was the highly publicized San Diego Occupy movement? Does it even exist any more?
