In fact, the Reason Rally does not even appear on the ABC News front page.
Just got home from the Rally, and an after-event dinner including several FtB bloggers. I want to do several quick posts on the Rally later today and tonight, but I thought I’d make a quick check of my news links to see what we got.
For ABC News, continuing coverage of the Travon Martin murder was today’s top headline, a news decision I pretty much agree with.
Other than that, nothing.
Sure, it’s difficult to fault them for failing to include the, you know, largest gathering in history of intelligent freethinkers – I mean, considering the shortage of electrons and photons to produce online news stories.
The following stories are included in the roster of pressing news coverage, all considered critically more important – by ABC News, anyway – than Reason Rally:
