The Missing Context for the pro-EFCA Rally at Old Main

Friday's rally at Old Main in support of the Employee Free Choice Act was a great success.  The Collegian reports that,
[m]ore than 120 Penn State student activists, professors, union representatives and community members congregated Friday at Old Main to urge Penn State President Graham Spanier and Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., to support the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA).
Unfortunately, the Centre Daily Times has, so far, ignored the rally.

While I'm on the topic of media failures, neither the Collegian nor the CDT have reported on the fact that Old Main lobbied against EFCA when it was considered by the last congress. This  important piece of context for the rally  should have been mentioned in the Collegian article.

The only place that you will have read about Old Main's opposition to EFCA is at Left of Centre. Why has the local media ignored the anti-labor activities of Graham?
