Response to Ichingcarpenter (Original post)

13. To see if you are correct, I did a Google News search for

Monsanto this morning. At the top of the results list are 289 articles about the protests. Newspapers, TV, and other media outlets have the story. In fact, I saw it yesterday on a local news station in the Twin Cities, MN, and the protests were reported in my Sunday paper this morning.

Monsanto issues do get covered. Not, perhaps, to the degree some feel is appropriate, of course. When I have an issue that is very important to me in mind, I often wonder why that issue isn't treated as seriously as I take it. But then, I realize that there are hundreds of important issues, and newspapers and other media cover stories that have a current nature. The global protests do just that, and so they were and are being covered.

Almost always, when someone says that something isn't being covered in the news, I do a Google News search and discover that coverage is there. Maybe the person missed it, or didn't actually read the newspaper or watch the news. Before calling out the media for not covering a story that is important to you, search Google News, allowing enough time (24 hours) for the news to get into print. Almost always, you'll find that it has been covered.
