Your Trip Into the Chapel Perilous

WI Protest Coverage Part II

Posted by invizweb on March 1, 2011

The following article below comes from guest of the Podcast and my personal friend Kenaz Filan.  Here is another excerpt with opinions and views shared by the Invisible Web:

Over 100,000 people in Madison, Wisconsin were joined by thousands of other Americans around the country in protest of Gov. Scott Walker’s attempt to strip collective bargaining rights from the state’s unionized workers, but you would not have known any of this if you watched cable news on Saturday as the coverage of the protests ranged from disappointing (MSNBC) to scant (CNN) to non-existent (Fox News).

And another:

Hundreds of thousands of Americans around the country march on their governments in an event that would be a perfect fit for the 24 hour cable news cycle. Even better, the protests were occurring during the news cycle dead zone of Saturday afternoon. The coverage should have been everywhere in the media, but if you turned on your television in hopes of watching the rally from Wisconsin live, you were disappointed.

Kenaz also wrote, “To supply Wisconsin protesters with WATER contact (Capitol Center Foods at 608-255-2616). To supply protesters with FOOD contact (Silver Mine Subs at 608-286-1000, Ian’s Pizza at 608-257-9248, Pizza Di Roma at 608-268-0900, or Asian Kitchen at 608-255-0571). To supply protesters with LAUNDRY SERVICES contact (Lazy Bones Laundry and Storage at 1.877.215.2105). PLEASE SHARE~!”
