my pictures from Wisconsin Solidarity Rally in Chicago
Only 2,000, but not kind to President Obama. During the "open mic" portion, someone said, "Mr. President, I didn't know we elected a Republican." Some great, firey speakers, including Senator Dick Durbin, as always. But I think the only cameras were MoveOn's. Turned on the local (not network) news, and they mentioned us, but showed canned tape from Wisconsin. This is the biggest movement in a generation, and it will not be televised.

1. Not televised on state controlled media
But upload all the pictures and videos you can and link them and get them out on to the social networks. It will be televised online.

I was watching CNN and they just showed WI, then went on to other stories. MSNBC has its usual Saturday crap.

18. Cheers!
Cheers to you! I got there as Durbin was speaking, and the crowd just kept growing; the snow was falling lightly, and all the speakers hit the exact right tones!

It was beautiful!

15. I was at the NYC rally...
Saw a few (apparently) indpendent videographers, but the only network news people I saw were (wait for it....) from Fox News.
