The Climate Change Happening That Didn’t Happen on the Sunday Shows

D.R. Tucker posted here at PA yesterday from the People’s Climate March in New York. But as karoi noted today at Crooks & Liars, the event that drew 300-400 thousand people just didn’t exist in the world of the Sunday Shows:

If 310,000 teabaggers showed up for a rally somewhere they’d be blasting the whole damned thing from start to finish on every damn news channel. But hey, it was just climate change activists — THREE HUNDRED TEN THOUSAND of them is all. So no big deal, they can pretend like that’s not anything to worry about and move on.

Well, I don’t know that every network follows every Tea Party event, but Lord knows they’ve got one network guaranteed to draw and keep attention.
