5. This wasn't too far off this morning, sadly. The Today Show devoted over 5 minutes

to that missing (of course white & attractive, & female) UVA student who's gone missing, and about 30 seconds to the Climate Change rallies. It was disgusting. I'm not minimizing the agony that the missing girl's family must be enduring, but come on--is it REALLY national news? They covered it extensively on Friday too. I suppose that's how the MSM subliminally stokes our fear and anxiety hoping to make us take our eye off the ball, making us worry about the remote possibility of our children being abducted--which will not impact Big Oil's bottom line--as opposed to the catastrophic effect that climate change will have on EVERYBODY'S children--which will.

16. Media is not Government. They just play the voters into voting, or not.

We only have the kind of government we are willing to participate in. The Teabaggers do believe in a government of, by and for the people like them, and they vote in every single election and run for every office. So they're winning, while others refuse to dirty their hands getting involved. No surprise on how that works out for those who want better government but don't vote.

37. Fully a quarter to a third nationally, or over a half to 100% don't want that in some states.

They vote consistently, but we have those who say they care but also say they will not vote. The ball is still in our court.

If that 75% and 90% who filled out the polls you cite, went to the real poll to vote, it'd be a done deal. They won't take the time to do it, obviously.

But the NRA cult and the Teabaggers understand what of, by and for the people mean, that's why they outvote us.

The FUD and gloom and helplessness is on our side, not theirs. They see results from their votes. And we see the results from us not voting.

62. The headlines would say "50,000 crazed armed lunatics surround philanthropists home"

Then the cops would start randomly shooting into the crowd

41. Should have thrown a brick through a window and had more shouting...the mass media only will

cover violence or threats of violence these days...the fear factor is being dialled up, no time for such nonsense like global warming catastrophe.

47. The L.A. Times (paper version) put it on page A6...

It had a nice photo of the march, but no mention of the amount of people in attendance. The article only talked about the politics—which is good—but yeah, no talk about the march itself.

54. Doncha know? 10 teabaggers speaking to empty space is more newsworthy than 300,000 marching in NY!

55. In NYC

The NY Times and Newsday (covers mostly Long Island) had it on the front page. The NY Post and NY Daily News did not. (They're both owned by Murdoch.)

The Weather Channel is all over this. The WEATHER Channel, instead of the NEWS channels.

How effing sad.

71. Where to complain

If over 300,000 people march in New York City to demand action on climate change, does it make a sound? Not if you're watching the Sunday morning network chat shows.

The September 21 People's Climate March lived up to its billing as the largest climate change march ever, drawing a massive crowd to focus world attention to the climate emergency. Similar events happened in other major cities around the world.

But the highest-profile discussion shows in the corporate media--ABC's This Week, NBC's Meet the Press, Fox News Sunday and Face the Nation on CBS--either did not know it was happening or didn't think it was important.

Other matters were more pressing. On NBC's Meet the Press, for instance, new anchor Chuck Todd presented a segment about how the midterm elections should be seen as a battle between Chick-Fil-A and Starbucks. (Apparently Republicans are fond of the fast food chicken, Democrats the coffee chain.)

There was one exception; during a panel on ABC's This Week, Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel argued that more US wars in the Middle East distract from "real security challenges" like

a catastrophic climate crisis which the Pentagon has called a clear and emerging danger. There are 100,000 people marching outside this studio today because of that.
The Sunday shows generally give little attention to climate change, as FAIR noted earlier this year (Extra!, 4/14). In February, all three network programs (ABC, CBS and NBC) talked about climate change on the same day (2/16/14), the most notable contribution being Meet the Press hosting a "debate" over the existence of climate change between TV science personality Bill Nye and a Republican politician.

So here's a simple question to the Sunday chat shows: If a day of massive international climate marches--right ahead of a major United Nations conference--is the wrong time to cover a global climate emergency, when will the right time be?

ACTION: After their silence on the People's Climate March, ask the Sunday shows when they think global climate change will be important enough to take seriously.

73. Now if half a dozen teabillies had turned up to protest the Kenyan muslin in the White House...

(Of course there would have been a million, but the rest couldn't find the address).

75. Yesterday NRP referred to "tens of thousands" marching on Sunday...
