rally crowd with iannuzzi

News media in Western New York, Long Island, the North Country and everywhere in between carried coverage in advance of Saturday’s event, with the rally story leading the news in several markets. Full news stories “advancing” the rally appeared in Albany, Utica, Syracuse and in the Hudson Valley. The One Voice United rally, which drew thousands to Albany’s Empire State Plaza, brought saturation coverage from every television and newspaper outlet in the Capital Region, and many others who reported on the rally remotely by interviewing teachers, students and parents via cellphone from their own newsrooms. The rally also received national exposure, as rally speaker John Nichols appeared on MSNBC's "The Ed Show" the following day to discuss teacher and parent opposition to high-stakes testing with guest host Joy Reid.
