Eye (Don’t) Witness News – The Lech Walesa Story

February 2, 2010

Last week, Nobel Laureate, Presidential Medal of Freedom winner, and former president of Poland, Lech Walesa, traveled to Chicago to endorse a political candidate for governor of Illinois.

Who he endorsed doesn’t matter.  The fact that he is here endorsing anyone at all should be considered newsworthy.

Unfortunately for Chicago residents, and the Polish community specifically, if you get your news from the city’s local television stations, you might not have even known that he was in town, let alone that he attended a Tea Party, and endorsed Adam Andrzejewski for governor.

Could this media blackout have anything to do with a political bias in the news room?

    Martin Kunert, as the USA has a president that might well be non american where is the conflict, especially as this person was the figurehead of the overthrow of communism in Poland and a leader of a trade union,this is news and should have been reported but as the media is more censored than either Hitler or Stalin managed do not be suprised, they also fail to report the corruption at the UN, same reason, this is why people dont buy papers.

    Let’s not forget that Lech Walesa is a union guy.

    Let a real heroic figure like Walesa fly half way around the world to endorse a relatively unknown conservative candidate, and the noise of crickets becomes deafening.

    Fantastic job. This is what blogging is all about. I just pray that the internet remains open and free so stories like this can get out to the general public.
