Alice Rankin: Why Wasn’t SR @ Anti-Tax Rally

Alice Rankin: There were 350 present for the Republican anti-Tax Rally and they didn’t even get a mention in the SR. Yet, the CDA Press, had both stories today on the front page, even though I disagree with giving the Dems top billing. But Tom Greene managed to cover both events, for the same issue. Why didn’t the SR assign a reporter to the Repubs rally? Bias?

DFO/sheepishly: I don’t know. A rally of 350 was certainly worthy of coverage. I’ll see if I can get an answer from the higher-ups.
