Maverick Media

I’ve posted before about the strange choices made by the media when it comes to covering biker protests. Tomorrow it’s BikeFest feat. KillSpills – a positive campaign about road safety and not spilling diesel on the roads. Track record to date suggests that 7,500 bikes riding in London on a KillSpills demo gets about three lines on BBCOnline. Yesterday just 500 bikers in Manchester enjoying the sunshine protesting about high fuel costs got coverage in most of the nationals. Maybe it was the splendid names of the organisers wot won it – Maverick, Nobby and Triumph Man.
