Where Was The Media?

Look at this big crowd of pro-healthcare reform activists rallying outside a meeting of health insurance executives in Washington D.C. this week:

Here’s another video of the same rally:

Where was the mainstream media? Where were all of those reporters who descended on Nashville at a ratio of one reporter for every three Tea Baggers? Where was the wall-to-wall news coverage that we get whenever the nincompoops on the right drag their misspelled signs and their racism and homophobia out of the attic and parade them out in public?

The only news coverage I saw on this event was on The Daily Show. And that just figures.

Maybe next time pro-healthcare reform folks rally, they should remember to wear tri-corner hats. Seems to be the only thing that gets our news media’s attention.
