19. the protests aren't the problem, the media coverage is
The media's goal is to entertain rather than inform. They would rather show the bad elements that are present at every protest than report on what the actual protest is about.

But I agree with your point.

There was a protest in GA about a year ago and the quote in the paper that got the most attention was from someone who thinks pissing in the bathtubs of mansions under construction sends a clear message for his cause.
