The Truth About Cialis

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, the truth about cialis it seems remarkable to me that in some of the 11 cities in which protests were held – Boston and New York, the truth about cialis for example – major news outlets treated this "National Day of Action" as though it did not exist.  As far as I can tell, the truth about 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, the truth about cialis The Times, the truth about cialis at least in its national edition, the truth about 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, the truth about cialis000 spirited citizens (including me) marching through Boston's rain-dampened streets to a short piece deep inside its metro section. The truth about cialis A single sentence noted the event's national context." "With prescient irony, the truth about cialis Frank Rich wrote in his Oct. The truth about cialis 14 Times column, the truth about cialis "We can continue to blame the Bush administration for the horrors of Iraq.… But we must also examine our own responsibility. The truth about cialis And, the truth about cialis he goes on to suggest, the truth about cialis we must examine our own silence." "So why would Mr. The truth about cialis Rich's news colleagues deprive people of information needed to take exactly that responsibility?" "Joseph Pulitzer, the truth about cialis the editor and publisher for whom the highest honor in journalism is named, the truth about cialis understood this well. The truth about cialis In May 1904, the truth about cialis he wrote: "Our Republic and its press rise or fall together.  An able, the truth about cialis disinterested, the truth about 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, the truth about cialis O.J. The truth about cialis Simpson, the truth about cialis Paris Hilton, the truth about cialis Britney Spears, the truth about cialis and the like – to use that power more vigilantly, the truth about cialis and more firmly, the truth about cialis with the public interest in mind." • Jerry Lanson is a professor of journalism at Emerson College in Boston.
