when is a protest news?

The media is covering the Egyptian protest. I suspect that they should.
But when is it appropriate to not cover a protest?

The march for life 2011 went uncovered.

I didn't even know when it was. I knew it was sometime around "now".
It's possible that there were more people there cocerning banning abortions, than in the Egpytian streets. At least at some point.

But the coverage leads to more protests and more popularity, so who knows.

btw I'm pro-choice.
