Why is it that when the fishing industry has any kind of protest or rally or any other kind of gathering to raise awareness about whats going on between fisherman and the government the media never seems to cover it, I looked all day on the T.V and listened to the radio for anything on the rally in D.C today and all I saw was a four second piece on WBZ 4 the rest of the channels talked about Toyata and a whale that killed a trainer that kept pissing it off.;?

Because when 20 or 30 bade smelling guys in tattered clothes stand on the washington mall and yell at people, it doesn't seem like anything unusual. ;)

That covers the politicians anyway.

NECN had a little piece on it, but overal a disappointment. I bet in some of the less liberal states they had more coverage.

Washington Post, the NY papers, etc all have had stories on it. Some were even front page.
You guys need to turn off the TV, and read.

Here is a thread with links to 4 stories about the rally.
If you would like more, I will be glad to post them
