BIMC Suppressed A Protest Event Yesterday
07 Apr 2006
Claiming that they "couldnt find corroboration of the story on the news" and that I "made up" the whole thing, but really because they disagreed with the direction of the protest, anonymous editors, being either Chester or Sofia hid the report of the event.

BIMC members know damn well that the news does not corroborate all protest events even if they are INSIDE the State House. However, BIMC's corporate "news corroboration methods" are lacking. The event was simulcast on 96.9 FM at 6:00 PM yesterday.

In short, BIMC should expand its "news corroboration methods" to include print and radio, instead of just checking Radicalendar and flipping on the boob tube. This was a facile censorship attempt. Over 1000 people attended the event, including 2 Congressmen. BIMC has failed in its local reporting efforts and suppressed information by local independents.

This work is in the public domain

What obligation does Boston IMC have to publicize a right-wing protest?

FLIPSIDE, you make up half of your stories. Take other people's names to post racist comments on the website. Have tried to discredit BIMC and other groups on several websites all around indymedia sites. Why should we ever believe what you say or owe you any kind of respect? Dude, get over yourself!

if Haters Magazine was a respectable publication, they would've written an article w/quotes instead of this lame "over 1000 people attended the event"

Too bad we weren't there... Please make sure to send a press release for future anti-immigrant protests so they can be covered on the most prestigious newspaper in the area.
