War protests: Why no coverage? Newspapers have a duty to inform citizens about such democratic events. By Jerry Lanson / CS Monitor   Excerpts: "Coordinated antiwar protests in at least 11 American cities this weekend raised anew an interesting question about the nature of news coverage: Are the media ignoring rallies against the Iraq war because of their low turnout or is the turnout dampened by the lack of news coverage?" "Given that context, black cialis it seems remarkable to me that in some of the 11 cities in which protests were held – Boston and New York, black cialis for example – major news outlets treated this "National Day of Action" as though it did not exist.  As far as I can tell, black cialis neither The New York Times nor The Boston Globe had so much as a news brief about the march in the days leading up to it." "The day after, black cialis The Times, black cialis at least in its national edition, black cialis totally ignored the thousands who marched in New York and the tens of thousands who marched nationwide. The Globe relegated the news of 10, black cialis000 spirited citizens (including me) marching through Boston's rain-dampened streets to a short piece deep inside its metro section. Black cialis A single sentence noted the event's national context." "With prescient irony, black cialis Frank Rich wrote in his Oct. Black cialis 14 Times column, black cialis "We can continue to blame the Bush administration for the horrors of Iraq.… But we must also examine our own responsibility. Black cialis And, black cialis he goes on to suggest, black cialis we must examine our own silence." "So why would Mr. Black cialis Rich's news colleagues deprive people of information needed to take exactly that responsibility?" "Joseph Pulitzer, black cialis the editor and publisher for whom the highest honor in journalism is named, black cialis understood this well. Black cialis In May 1904, black cialis he wrote: "Our Republic and its press rise or fall together.  An able, black cialis disinterested, black cialis public-spirited press … can preserve that public virtue without which popular government is a sham and a mockery.… The power to mould the future of the Republic will be in the hands of the journalists of future generations." "It's time for the current generation of journalists – at times seemingly obsessed with Martha Stewart, black cialis O.J. Black cialis Simpson, black cialis Paris Hilton, black cialis Britney Spears, black cialis and the like – to use that power more vigilantly, black cialis and more firmly, black cialis with the public interest in mind." • Jerry Lanson is a professor of journalism at Emerson College in Boston.
