Media Research Center reports on media reaction to the pro-war rally in New York City. Interestingly enough, Peter Jennings didn't even find the event newsworthy. Every time a couple hundred jackasses laid down for a "die-in," Jennings was right there to tell us about it. But 15,000 people gather to support the coalition and Jennings has nary a word to say about it. Is this fair and balanced reporting?
I also noted that antiwar demonstrations were organized by ANSWER (that is, the communist World Workers Party) while this pro-war rally was sponsored by the Building And Construction Trades Council Of Greater New York (that is, real working people). Says a lot, doesn't it?
