Original message Occupy Portland and war protest get almost complete media blackout here. WTF???
Occupy Portland is going strong in it's second week of 24 hr, peaceful occupation. Today it combined with Peace and Justice Works for an anti-war march of 5,000 strong, which came off peacefully. (again)
I guess that doesn't grab the headlines anymore?
Of the 5 or 6 MSM outlets in western Oregon, only 1 (KGW) covered it at all.
(decent news vid at the link)
This is beyond bizarre, when the Occupation has previously received fairly reasonable press here, and all the MSM knew that it was going to be an international day of action, and that Portland was one of the major Occupation cities in the US.
Is this going to be their new tactic? Not to beat us out, but just try and starve the Occupation of attention until it withers?
I don't think it's going to work.
Please pay attention to us!!!!:D
