NYC Media Protest Eye Witness Report and Commentary

NYC Rally to Stop Media Bias Against Hillary

On the far sidelines of Friday’s Today Show an estimated 100-150 Hillary Clinton supporters expressed their voices, “carrying signs” to protest the media’s misogynist treatment of her. What a dedicated, resourceful crowd, brought together by pro-Hillary bloggers from NYC and North Carolina, spearheaded by Murray and KittyNC respectively.

The event’s press release contained quotes of some of the unconscious commentator clips from the YouTube video in my April 10, 2008 post. I have the press release and was going share some of those slurs here, but as I began typing them in, I lost the desire to repeat them, and send them out into the Universe one more time. Maybe another day. You can watch the video and catch them all.

I’m coming around to this: If there’s nothing glaring, I’m going to switch my focus, at least I’m going to try. Yes, I’m a stickler for fairness. But I think it’s more important, and healthier too, as so many great bloggers do, to promote Hillary’s accomplishments, platforms, and programs than it is to be a media victim. I did say “nothing glaring,” AND I will try to accentuate the positive.

On the other hand, I’m a child of the sixties and practice both seemingly contradictory yogas: I will never stop protesting. I will always want to make love not war.

  1. I enjoy your blog. Thank you for highlighting our protest. I am from the Hillaryclintonforum. I have been here before.
    Thanks again.

  2. I am glad to find your blog. Thanks for the focus on the protest at Rock Plaza this a.m. Supporters have become so frustrated with the bias of the MSM, that this was a bonding experience for many of us, even though the majority of us from hillaryclintonforum.net were unable to attend the protest. Thank you from a Michigan voter …COUNT MI VOTE!

  3. hillary4change: Thank you for your comments, and you’re welcome. It feels good to have my writing appreciated, and I hope you’ll visit often. I’ve really gotten swept away by these topics, this medium, and the rush (pun intended) of being instantly published and read. Oh, finally, now I get it — the whole blogging thing. At least I got here — I’m usually one of the last to arrive and leave a party. Cheers and onward!

  4. MS BLUEGRASS: “A bonding experience!” Wow, that’s so great to hear. We represented today, er yesterday. Even though we were a compact group, glad to know that the energy we generated reached across the miles. Go Michigan voters! Keep us apprised of any breaking news on your vote.
