  •  Look at the mediocre coverage the D.C.... (7+ / 0-)

    ...rally actually got by Big Media. PBS did best, with 50 seconds out of an 11-minute segment that included a debate between an NRDC fellow and an oil lobbyist.

    Attention can be gained from local media without big D.C. rallies. If there are 200 small marches and rallies of a few hundred or few thousand in cities nationwide on the same day, I guarantee this will get better attention from national media. Of course, the organizers of such a networked protest operation can't be passive about getting the media to come out. Gotta work at it.

    Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.

    •  You are all right. MSNBC did a segment on this (3+ / 0-)

      on the Ed Show tonight and Chris Hayes did a panel and segment on Sunday. Thanks FSM.

      We need both. There is something palpable when a throng of people from many places in the country shows up in DC ( we were there for the inauguration. Chills) And we have seen the conversations started by local actions.

      Thanks to those getting up and away from their keyboards and putting the energy into showing up.

      Science is hell bent on consensus. Dr. Michael Crichton said “Let’s be clear: The work of science has nothing to do with consensus... which is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right,”
