Corp Media Mentioned DC S24 - But There Was Much More
27 Sep 2005
Yes, the corporate media actually mentioned the demonstration in DC which drew more than 100,000 protesters.......it's true. Their reports were generally about 15 seconds in length, and mentioned nothing about the call for impeachment by former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark or any of the other speakers at the Rally.
They also neglected to mention that there were large demonstrations in San Francisco,
La, London, Cambridge, Rome, Milan, Madrid, Ottawa, Toronto, Seoul, Paris, Ireland,
Copenhagen, Helsinki, Damascus, Baghdad, Portland, Seattle, San Diego, Syracuse and
more. In all, well over 200,000 stood up in cities around the globe to say "NO" to the War
in Iraq.

That it was mentioned at all is a good sign, I guess, when you consider that there have been
more than 2,000 demonstrations around the world since the Nov. 2 Election that have brought
out millions of protesters that have never been given one second of coverage by our illustrious
corp. media giants (ass-kissing, complicit fascists) .
