21. We don't own or control the private MSM
Edited on Mon Apr-18-11 11:03 AM by KurtNYC
they don't have to do anything or cover anything. They are not the scoreboard. Protests existed long before TV and ours aren't made for TV coverage. Are we going to tell people they can't bring obscene signs, chant obscenities, have off-topic signs, etc? Are we going to get corporate or billionaire sponsors, send buses for the media, have a green room and a craft services tent for the media at our events? Because that is the game.

Does anyone here really expect FNC to air live footage from a protest where people are chanting "Fox News lies!" ?

We better not need the MSM because we are never going to get coverage.

edit: typo on 'Fox'
