We predicted your behavior, and sure enough you acted true to form.
We are sure you have your reasons, and excuses, and frankly- I do not need to hear them at all!
You failed at reporting! That’s not news to us!
It wasn’t like you were not notified in advance, because, of course, you were.
It’s OKAY if you exercise your prerogative and select the news to report.
What’s so big about 400+ people there as counter protesters, whom are truly the grass roots enthusiastic, and committed group of the two crowds gathered yesterday?
The ‘astroturf’ crowd sure noticed our Funeral for Health Care, they were distracted to the point of frustration.
They, the artificial astroturfers held their mass produced union signs, and almost no American flags- while the real grassroots crowd had very creative homemade signs, and were the ones waving all the American flags!
Your story conveniently omits any mention of our crowd while misrepresenting their crowd as attracting people from all over the Northwest.
Excuse me…they were bussed in as planned! Here is an example from one union the Washington Federation of State Employees.
It did not ‘draw’ participants from all over the NW, it was a staged event to project a public image; that most of the people now want socialized medicine .
We had the counter message that you refused to show. We do not want a government managing our health care, and think such a step is a one way stride into socialism!
We had plenty of alternative solutions and flyers to hand out to those wanting information!
You see, we were not hiding information, we were providing it…like News organizations used to do!

A new term has emerged from this type of news coverage; “Obama Compliant News”
it could be a logo of endearment for the left, while a warning logo to us!
