Threat of arson against Planned Parenthood Problem Pregnancy not even local news...

This morn­ing on the way home from drop­ping off my son to school I stopped off at the 5th street diner to see what the Worces­ter Telegram had to say about the van­dal­ism and threats at Prob­lem Preg­nancy yesterday.

There wasn’t a word in the paper, so I checked on Telegram​.com online:

Nope not a word there, so I fig­ured I’d check the Fitch­burg Sen­tinel after all local protests had been well cov­ered there.

How­ever the sen­tinel did have break­ing news on pup­pies being found (I kid you not)

The ninth and final puppy stolen from Sterling’s ani­mal shel­ter was found with the help of a tip Sun­day, Ster­ling Ani­mal Con­trol Offi­cer Louis Massa said.

Scout is back at Ani­mal Shel­ter Inc. and is appar­ently in good health, Massa said Tuesday.

Absolutely riv­et­ing! After all how can this

or this:

…com­pete with a lost puppy? Maybe if they actu­ally torch the place it might make page B-​24.

I called up Prob­lem Preg­nancy today and found that the only the Catholic Free Press was prepar­ing to take a look after some­one for­warded my story to them.

When you think of it, it’s kinda sad that blogs in New York are cov­er­ing this but papers in Mass­a­chu­setts are not.

I guar­an­tee you that if this was Planned Par­ent­hood instead of Prob­lem Preg­nancy, for­get the papers, this would have made chan­nels 4,5,7 NECN with live shots of news crews talk­ing about the seri­ous­ness of threats and vio­lence against those who are try­ing to help and coun­sel women and com­men­tary by national fig­ures about the vio­lence of the right.

But Stones through win­dows and threats of arson against groups that don’t pro­vide abor­tion or give money to democ­rats, like death threats against repub­li­can leg­is­la­tors in Wis­con­sin don’t count.

Update: Then again even their own sto­ries are appar­ently not news­wor­thy.

Update 2: There is now a telegram story behind a sub­scrip­tion wall

This morning on the way home from dropping off my son to school I stopped off at the 5th street diner to see what the Worcester Telegram had to say about the vandalism and threats at Problem Pregnancy yesterday.

There wasn’t a word in the paper, so I checked on Telegram.com online:

Nope not a word there, so I figured I’d check the Fitchburg Sentinel after all local protests had been well covered there.

However the sentinel did have breaking news on puppies being found (I kid you not)

The ninth and final puppy stolen from Sterling’s animal shelter was found with the help of a tip Sunday, Sterling Animal Control Officer Louis Massa said.

Scout is back at Animal Shelter Inc. and is apparently in good health, Massa said Tuesday.

Absolutely riveting! After all how can this

or this:

Yup breaking windows is pro-woman

…compete with a lost puppy? Maybe if they actually torch the place it might make page B-24.

I called up Problem Pregnancy today and found that the only the Catholic Free Press was preparing to take a look after someone forwarded my story to them.

When you think of it, it’s kinda sad that blogs in New York are covering this but papers in Massachusetts are not.

I guarantee you that if this was Planned Parenthood instead of Problem Pregnancy, forget the papers, this would have made channels 4,5,7 NECN with live shots of news crews talking about the seriousness of threats and violence against those who are trying to help and counsel women and commentary by national figures about the violence of the right.

But Stones through windows and threats of arson against groups that don’t provide abortion or give money to democrats, like death threats against republican legislators in Wisconsin don’t count.

Update: Then again even their own stories are apparently not newsworthy.

Update 2: There is now a telegram story behind a subscription wall
