Credit KMOV (Channel 4) reporter Donna Savarese with a sharp eye - and the willingness to ask the right questions.

Assigned to cover what had been presented to the media (and the public) as a “teach in” for students protesting state and community efforts to reform St. Louis public schools, Savarese reported a couple of important things: most of the students were actually enrolled at Fontbonne University, not the public schools; and those students told Donna that they were at City Hall to observe the political process, not to protest school reform.

Theater, then.

For now, you can see Donna’s story here.
