Re: Your Coverage of the “Overentitled, Overeducated White People For Big Government” Rally
“Field of Dreams” was a great movie. And one of its hook lines was, indeed, “If you build it, they will come”.
But repeating “The rallies are building! The rallies are building!” (koff koff Alix Kendall and Tom Bultler) several times every newscast doesn’t actually mean that this exercise in Obama-fluffing is ever going to become an actual populist “uprising”
That is all.
(PS – Seriously – I know you want to have a big headline story, but this is the kind of stuff that people are going to be laughing about for years. The Channel Nine morning news at 7AM devoted a solid four minutes to the protests, clogged with references to “watching the nationwide protests as they spread across the country”, as if it’ll actually happen if you say it once an hour).
