Two hundred constituents show up in front of Gerry Connolly’s District office to voice their opinions about legislation pending before Congress, and Gerry Connolly has his office locked and avoids the event, so they demonstrate outside of his office. You’d think the mainstream media might be interested in such an event, but I only saw one camera crew there other than myself. One.
They were from Al Jazeera. Go figure. The foreign news media thought this was an event worth covering, but the local media, some of which had noted previously that this would be happening, was nowhere to be found. I suppose if you live in Saudi Arabia you can see what happened in Annandale today, but if you actually live in Annandale and can’t catch Al Jazeera on satellite or cable or don’t speak Arabic, you’re out of luck.
I’ll have video up from this as soon as I get a chance, but until then some of you might ponder what the local media was doing today instead of reporting actual local news.
