Conservatives are invisible (continued)

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Mar 26, 2012

Last Friday morning I predicted that the mainstream media would ignore the Stand Up for Religious Freedom rallies. I’m not boasting; it was an easy prediction to make.

But I failed to foresee an interesting contrast. The Washington Post gave zero coverage to the 140+ rallies that drew at least 50,000 people at noon on Friday. But the Post found space the next day for coverage of an atheists’ rally that drew a few thousand people to the National Mall.

Atheists, you see, are visible to the denizens of the typical big-city newsroom. Conservatives, as I explained on Friday, are invisible.

 

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
