Is Dianna Ortiz Being Ignored By The Corporate Media?

Here's one more huge story which the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel doesn't
seem to care about. They printed the following press release.
I'm not finding an article about her speech at all.
I think there were about 300 people there to hear her speak.
Torture survivor to sign book

Sister Dianna Ortiz, author of "Through the Blindfold's Eyes:
My Journey From Torture to Truth," will sign copies of her book
from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday in the Campus Theater at Mount Mary College,
2900 N. Menomonee River Parkway. Since being abducted and tortured
by members of the Guatemalan security forces in 1989, she has co-
founded the Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition

[NOTE: I've seen this repeated so often the past 5 months,
I'll point this out as an actual trend. When people high
up at the Journal Sentinel are either cold toward a story,
or downright hostile, they will print the press releases
ad nauseum; and if it's a somewhat commercial event they
will certainly print every paid ad with rigor. But come
event day, there will either be no reporter, or an excited
energetic reporter. Their story will never see light of day
or will be so hacked to pieces it's not recognizable by
the time it gets to the printers.]
