The Invisible Women and Men of #protestpp

Com­pere: Well, Mr Wal­ters, what’s it like being invisible?

Wal­ters: [slowly and bor­ingly] Well, for a start, at the office where I work I can be sit­ting at my desk all day and the oth­ers totally ignore me. At home, even though we are in the same room, my wife does not speak to me for hours, peo­ple pass me by in the street with­out a glance in my direc­tion, and I can walk into a room without…

Com­pere: Well, whilst we’ve got inter­est­ing peo­ple, we met Mr Oliver Cavendish who…

Wal­ters: [dron­ing on] … Even now you your­self, you do hardly notice me…

Monty Python’s Fly­ing Circus

On Sat­ur­day I posted videos & inter­views from the planned par­ent­hood protest in Fitch­burg.

It was a small protest but one of 180 planned protests against planned par­ent­hood that as Bre­it­bart noted became 320 protests all over the nation such as louisville.

Ale­jan­dro Capote spoke at the Louisville, Ken­tucky, protest, where he esti­mates at least 500 peo­ple participated.

I spoke about the impor­tance of defund­ing Planned Par­ent­hood,” Capote tells Bre­it­bart News. “It’s impor­tant that women have health care that does not fund abortion.”

Falls church virginia

Theresa King, who orga­nized the Falls Church, Vir­ginia, #ProtestPP rally told Bre­it­bart News she decided to be an orga­nizer after view­ing the Cen­ter for Med­ical Progress videos.

I saw the Planned Par­ent­hood videos and felt the need to act,” she said. “As a kid, I would pray out­side of abor­tion clin­ics, and my mom always said that we were giv­ing the babies the only funeral they would ever have, so I felt the need to stand for the babies in the video, but for all the babies that have died in abortion.”

And as Twitchy and Steven Miller noted these took place with­out vio­lence:

This fact is a huge prob­lem for the MSM which has taken the side of planned par­ent­hood in the cur­rent debate and the knowl­edge that this many protests took place with­out inci­dent would be an awk­ward story for them.

How­ever despite the pho­to­graphic evi­dence I’ve just dis­played the media’s prob­lem was solved by the peo­ple in ques­tion appar­ently being totally invis­i­ble:

Obvi­ously the pro­test­ers were quite invis­i­ble to most, I did a search of CBS news for planned par­ent­hood , no coverage:

ABC no coverage

NBC no coverage

Not even a word on the net from any of them. CNN did slightly bet­ter online here is the full text of their only story: (empha­sis mine)

CNN PRO­DUCER NOTE Oppo­nents took to the streets in a nation­wide protest against Planned Par­ent­hood on Sat­ur­day. Jen­nifer James was dri­ving past a Planned Par­ent­hood in Okla­homa City when she saw hun­dreds of peo­ple protest­ing Sat­ur­day morn­ing. ““It was a very quiet protest,” James said. “As I walked up and down it with my cam­era, you could have heard a pin drop. It was unusual given how con­tentions of an issue it is.”
- zdan, CNN iRe­port producer

A few hun­dred peo­ple gather out­side Planned Par­ent­hood in Okla­homa City to protest abor­tion and gov­ern­ment fund­ing for the orga­ni­za­tion. Among the pro­test­ers were stu­dents from the New­man Cen­ter, a Catholic stu­dent orga­ni­za­tion at the Uni­ver­sity of Cen­tral Oklahoma.
Note the high­lighted text, the only rea­son why CNN has this tiny bit of online cov­er­age was because one of their pro­duc­ers noticed the protest dri­ving by and was shocked by how orderly it was.
But who knew that so many peo­ple in the nation could be so invis­i­ble? Par­tic­u­larly when they don’t have media con­nec­tions who will be sure to show up to make even the tini­est protest national news

I’m a sin­gle blog­ger with a cheap cam­era and the MSM is a multi bil­lion dol­lar indus­try, how is it that I could pro­duce this interview

and they could not?

Monty Python’s Flying Circus

On Saturday I posted videos & interviews from the planned parenthood protest in Fitchburg.

It was a small protest but one of 180 planned protests against planned parenthood that as Breitbart noted became 320 protests all over the nation such as louisville.

Alejandro Capote spoke at the Louisville, Kentucky, protest, where he estimates at least 500 people participated.

“I spoke about the importance of defunding Planned Parenthood,” Capote tells Breitbart News. “It’s important that women have health care that does not fund abortion.”

Theresa King, who organized the Falls Church, Virginia, #ProtestPP rally told Breitbart News she decided to be an organizer after viewing the Center for Medical Progress videos.

“I saw the Planned Parenthood videos and felt the need to act,” she said. “As a kid, I would pray outside of abortion clinics, and my mom always said that we were giving the babies the only funeral they would ever have, so I felt the need to stand for the babies in the video, but for all the babies that have died in abortion.”

This fact is a huge problem for the MSM which has taken the side of planned parenthood in the current debate and the knowledge that this many protests took place without incident would be an awkward story for them.

However despite the photographic evidence I’ve just displayed the media’s problem was solved by the people in question apparently being totally invisible:

 

Obviously the protesters were quite invisible to most, I did a search of CBS news for planned parenthood , no coverage:

Not even a word on the net from any of them.  CNN did slightly better online here is the full text of their only story: (emphasis mine)

CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Opponents took to the streets in a nationwide protest against Planned Parenthood on Saturday. Jennifer James was driving past a Planned Parenthood in Oklahoma City when she saw hundreds of people protesting Saturday morning. ““It was a very quiet protest,” James said. “As I walked up and down it with my camera, you could have heard a pin drop. It was unusual given how contentions of an issue it is.”
zdan, CNN iReport producer

A few hundred people gather outside Planned Parenthood in Oklahoma City to protest abortion and government funding for the organization. Among the protesters were students from the Newman Center, a Catholic student organization at the University of Central Oklahoma.
Note the highlighted text, the only reason why CNN has this tiny bit of online coverage was because one of their producers noticed the protest driving by and was shocked by how orderly it was.
But who knew that so many people in the nation could be so invisible?  Particularly when they don’t have media connections who will be sure to show up to make even the tiniest protest national news

I’m a single blogger with a cheap camera and the MSM is a multi billion dollar industry, how is it that I could produce this interview

and they could not?
