Last night's healthcare rallies not raucous enough to earn much coverage
At this point, there have been so many rallies about healthcare that they tend to garner relatively little media attention unless they devolve into histrionic scream fests along the lines of one that greeted Congressman Ed Perlmutter a few weeks back. Witness last night's series of pro-reform get-togethers at locations across the country, which were sponsored by MoveOn.org. The Denver assembly earned some pixels because of sheer size: The crowd reportedly exceeded 1,000 folks. But considerably less notice was paid to the Boulder version, even though turnout at the city's bandshell was quite strong, as seen in the video of the candlelight vigil above. If only it hadn't been so benign and peaceful, more members of the press might have been interested.
