Bias By Omission

A post yesterday featuring quotes from Austin Bay and Tom Wolfe explored the staging of protests and marches for advocacy and ratings. But if a protest occurs and the MSM doesn’t cover it, does it make a sound?

Update: Related thoughts from Ed Morrissey, and Pamela of Atlas Shrugs has photos and video. Or as the Professor puts it, “Once again, scooping the Big Media on their very doorstep”. (One in which they can send 20 reporters to cover this, but not a 35,000-person protest against Iraq’s Ahmadinejad.)
