We are sorry to say that the videos below are all the reporting that we could locate on yesterday’s “The Day We Fight Back” protests . We had high hopes for constructing a comprehensive report on yesterday’s events but apparently this is about as comprehensive as we can get due to the near media blackout on news of the protests .

     We searched for some major network video coverage of yesterday’s “The Day We Fight Back” protests and it was a fruitless effort . As you can see by the list below neither the major networks nor the new self-styled , “cutting edge” video news services deigned to offer footage of the worldwide protests . For that matter we were unable to find any first-hand videos from the protestors themselves . The above videos represent the sum total of our success in bringing you accurate and timely reports on this all important movement . We apologize for the dearth of information and cannot help but wonder , in the day and age of video/cell cameras in every pocket , why there is so little reporting .

 

The following major media outlets offered no video reportage of yesterday’s protests at all . 

 

CNN has nothing 

AP nothing

CBS nothing

NBC nothing

Reuters nothing

ABC nothing

EuroNews nothing

WSJ Digital nothing

ITN nothing

BBC nothing

Truthloader nothing

Sourcefed nothing

 

 

    The lack of video documentation of “The Day We Fight Back” protests is matched by the equally lacking print coverage evidenced by our search of the web . Even Drudge is without a single reference to yesterday’s protests . What gives ? Were they that much of a bust ? Were any of our readers present at any of the events ? If so , we would love to hear from you .
