Last Friday, May Day, the local evening news on each channel was full of coverage of protest and police activity in Seattle. As I often do, the next morning I searched The News Tribune for fuller coverage of the event. Not a word!
A similar event in Baltimore was fully covered, and there were many events, seeingly less important, near and far, that received coverage. On Sunday there was an article and picture in Section B, provided by the Associated Press; there it was reported that there were May Day activities in Tacoma.
Apparently neither event merited a local reporter's time. Why? Because Seattle is a rival city? Because that type of activity doesn't deserve coverage? (Baltimore's did.) I expect the TNT to cover the majority of newsworthy events at greater depth that TV news, not to skip some entirely.
