Conservatives are invisible (continued)
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.
