disappearing act

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jan 22, 2010

Do you know how to make 100,000 people disappear? It's an easy 2-step process.

  1. Put them on the Washington Mall.
  2. Give them pro-life placards, which make them invisible to the major media.

    Must disagree with Anselm. I worked in DC for 20 years, live outside it, and attend the March for Life most years (including this one). DC media provides significant coverage to some of the most marginal demonstrations (anything involving gay rights, for example). The only coverage the March for Life gets is the nod from the traffic reporters about street closures. It is the media outlets deciding the March for Life is not a newsworthy cause.

    Just like every other protest, no media attention. A friend of mine is a DC police officer. There is a march about something two to three times a week so media coverage is nil since a march about something is considered a normal DC day.
