Kony, Invisible Children, what News Limited thinks is most important

In the face of, you know, this, some people have raised concerns about how useful or timely the online presentation about Kony actually is. Club Troppo provides a useful summary of the concerns and critiques.

But then there's this headline from
KONY 2012? You'd rather watch cricket, in March, as Channel 10 special flounders.

News limited headline writers, if not necessarily their actual journalists, seem to have a tendency to demean and denigrate new media activism. But is this really the headline they want to go with on this issue?
