Media Hype

CNN is called an expected crowd in DC of 30,000 (read 5,000) a major anti-war rally. If the news doesn't fit reality, "massage it" to fit the agenda. Calling this a "major" anything is an affront to real protest marches in DC. When you get a quarter million then you can start blowing your own horn.

The tens of thousands weekend visitors to the National Mall playing Frisbee and sight seeing get no mention, since they are only enjoying a beautiful fall day, not spouting hate. I bet most of them are not even aware of this "major" event.

The demonstration rap concert is playing on C-SPAN1.

Michele at a small victory is blogging the event.
