Plano Petland protest: 80 plus

January 13, 2009

From the forum thread I linked to below it sounds like the local TV media wasn’t terribly receptive to these protests.  And what about national media? I looked at Google news and found very little coverage of a protest that spanned fifteen states.  I think its part of the corporatization of the mainstream media.  If its a nationwide abortion or gay rights protest the media will cover it because politics is safe.  But a protest against a big corporation?  Too scary particularly in these days of a scarce advertising revenue.
