(Appeared the next morning)

NECN
(Nightly news. The headline is “Senator Kerry in Worcester to talk business.”)

WCCA
(Appeared that afternoon.)

Worcester Independent Media Center
(First IMC pix posted within the hour.)

NECN had a camera at the morning anti-war protest, yet chose not to mention it, even though their story began with Kerry’s stand on the war.

The NECN piece concluded with news from the MLK Center, which Kerry was visiting. They chose not to mention Kerry much in this part, which is reasonable, since he has little to do with the Center. The T&G piece was entirely about the Center, and contrived to mention Kerry throughout.
