No media coverage for "Martyr" Thomas

Thursday, October 11, 2007

From scanning Google news and watching local television in Cleveland last night, United Church of Christ President John "Martyr" Thomas didn't receive a single bit of news coverage for his arrest outside the White House yesterday.

UPDATE 10/11: One news outlet did cover the arrest...

Stories on the Medill site are "reported, written and produced by
Northwestern University graduate journalism students".

That news article included some details that UC news omitted -- namely that they were released two hours after they were carried off in the paddy wagon, and that they were fined $100 apiece.

It is likely that they knew this would be the penalty for their actions.

Now that UCC News allows reader comments posted at the end of their articles, it is interesting to see how many people are offering prayers of support and accolades for the courage it took.

Does it really take any courage at all to pay $200 fine for trespassing? IMHO, Not realy.
