    and Egypt? Sure, after they'd been happening for a while, but this is rather different.

      this is a small event in a foreign nation thus it's no surprise it's not on the news. You could argue that it should be and I'd agree with you but that's not the same thing as alleging some media black out.

      Hell it seems to be all over Canadian news with at least 3 different website reports and that alone should put the idea to rest.

        were in no way small. Not at all.

        First Nations peoples burned 5(or 6) cop cars protesting a carbon extraction scheme. That's news.

        Really though, it will get covered once enough noise gets made on social networks and blogs and such. I'm not going to argue about the reason it isn't being covered because hopefully this coverage will get it more attention.

        I have no clue what sites are big in Canada so I couldn't say if that's any sort of real coverage. But I'd imagine that 6 burnt cop cars at a protest would be news anywhere in the US, so I assume it's news in the US.

        To sum up, yes, this is different than Greece and Egypt, and it's also smaller. It may get coverage if we keep up the noise making about it and if they keep up the protesting.

        same comment the same way?

        I would say, Indigenous people burning cars is a big deal. Do you think that the Indigenous people in Canada don't talk to the ones in the US?

        Yea this is a big deal for lots of reasons--and a conspiracy? Everything you don't agree with a conspiracy? That's mighty convenient.

        I am just so glad you could label me and others as CTs for not holding a view you find acceptable.

        Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).

        •  me and AoT had a wonderful conversation (0+ / 0-)

          why are you trying to pick a fight several hours after the fact?

          And yes alleging a media blackout is fairly CT given that there's no proof of that and in point of fact this news is widely available it seems.
