NRA News Cam and Co. will have IGOLD coverage and interview with Radie on tonight's show. Show began at 8:20 - hope we didn't miss it.

Also, I see that IGOLD coverage is posted in the show archives for Mar. 7. If we missed Radie's interview, we'll be able to pick it up in the archives later.

Scroll down through the archives for Mar. 7 and you can view the interview by Suzanna Hupp and my interview that was done before the IGOLD rally started.

Better to use a clip with hundreds than one with thousands. Hurts their argument.
The media loves to use subliminal images like that.

I predicted that Chicago/Cook county will be sold out in order to get "shall issue".
Based on the restrictions on carry in Chicago/Cook County, I was right.

Sen. Sullivan posted this IGOLD video on the IL Senate Democrats youtube site. Has him speaking at IGOLD on the Lincoln steps and
has a great segment on the flash-conceal-carry-now-chant in the Capitol rotunda!

My dad called me from missouri this morning and said he saw it on the news this morning! i called some relatives here in chicagoland and they said they heard nothing about it!


Government censorship of media is a scary thing isn't it?


I wouldn't call this government censorship. However, most of the media outlets are liberal and complicit with the anti-gunners in power. ABC, NBC, CBS and WGN weren't told by the government not to cover this- they did it out of choice, reflecting their bias. If we had "Occupied" Springfield Wednesday and broken a few windows or crapped on a cop car, we would have gotten lots of coverage. Law-abiding gun owners don't do that, though.

At least there was a little coverage. I didn't see any on the news up here in Chicagoland. And of course they minimized the numbers again. How can such blatent bias continue to stand? :rolleyes:

I am having an e-mail exchange with a manager at the Tribune about their lack of coverage. We'll see if anything comes of it.

The last segment ran long - IGOLD piece will probably be bumped to Monday. We'll catch it then.

Segment about IGOLD that was bumped Friday is scheduled to run tonight on NRAnews.com. Not sure what time. Hopefully it makes it on air.

The "Concealed-Carry-Now Flash-Chant" of people on the railings of the several floors of the center rotunda of the Springfield Illinois Capitol Building was AWESOME !

Brilliant !!

Unlike the Flash-Mob attacks on Michigan Avenue this past summer, nobody got robbed, beaten, or assaulted, even though you people have guns. Shows a big difference between criminals and law-abiding citizens.

Yay guns!!! boooo anti-gunners!

Well the Tribune addressed my inquiry on Page 2 of today's edition. Needless to say it isn't a very satisfactory answer. To add insult to injury the photo they published in the online story is of a Union rally even though I supplied Mr. Janega with IGOLD photos.!

Reader question: When do decide to cover (or not cover) a rally at the state capitol?


Members of various unions rally against proposed pension legislation in the rotunda of the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield Wednesday, October 26, 2011. (E. Jason Wambsgans/ Chicago Tribune)


By Ray Long and James Janega

4:46 p.m. CDT, March 12, 2012


Readers who support specific causes often seek news coverage of their lobbying days in the state capitol. That can include gun rights, education initiatives, health care policies and much more.

Two readers, Charles Vandercamp and Louis J. Berardi, asked versions of the same question: How does the Tribune decide which to cover, and can anything be read into a decision to pass?

Reporters and editors talk often about those decisions. Springfield Bureau Chief Ray Long responds:

"The key to covering Springfield is that there is no hard-and-fast rule, which is what makes this the Greatest Beat on Planet Earth. On any given day, there can be multiple news conferences, multiple rallies, multiple committee meetings, a few good tips and dozens of votes on bills in the House and Senate. All of that is to say that few actual rallies get covered — let alone mentioned.

"One reason: rallies, though they are a great show of force for a specific cause, rarely have a major impact on how lawmakers vote on an issue. They give ralliers a great chance to button-hole a lawmaker to present a case for or against legislation, and they can build enthusiasm for an issue. But it’s a day-by-day, often moment-by-moment call on what gets covered among the numerous competing activities that people care about. Votes on major issues, for example, take precedence over a rally no matter how interesting to the crowd.

"But we do our best to deliver the news that has the most impact on our terrific family of readers."

If you have a question about how or why the Tribune does what it does, you can ask us at TribNation.com/Question.

Well, at least they responded. But I'm sure their bias for or against an issue has no impact...:rolleyes: Just like the bias from the media had no impact on how they cover the same issues (such as gas prices) under Obama (minimize the damage and the outrage) and Bush (blame him for everything).
