"The mainstream media was completely caught off guard by the protests. They had no idea why there were all these people out on the streets of Seattle, or what they wanted. Their attempt to explain issues they didn't understand left them scrambling for a story they did understand—young people breaking windows."
—Sarah van Gelder, YES! Executive Editor

"I was at the teach-ins at Benaroya Hall, and it was exciting to see so many people (it was packed) converge to hear knowledgable, reasoned speakers make the case against globalization and the WTO. I didn't see a single TV camera or reporter at the teach-in while I was there, and didn't see any mention of it on the news. It seemed that the news media didn't want to educate themselves and the public about the issues, they were just looking for the 'fight'."
—Sharon Booth, YES! Circulation Design Manager
