The NYT front webpage makes no mention of the march on Washington yesterday. There is a story to be found if you click “politics” and look around, but nothing on the front page (the dead tree edition has a picture on the front page, an article buried on p.37). So what does merit the Time’s attention? Cavities in children (caused by Bush and big business), the NY Jets – they won, isn’t that happy news? And the search for the missing Yale student. All important stories, certainly, but there was a time when the paper prided itself on covering national news.
Update: well at least someone still covers the news. Here’s the “Afro”: Tea Party event draws Majority white protestors in Washington.
