Media Coverage of the Protest

This is a FOX5 coverage--what is most amusing is their statement that there was a somewhat smaller group of pro-war protestors (hundreds of thousands of Peace protestors and 20 Pro-War protestors... hmmm, yeah that is somewhat smaller...), there emphasis on a minor event where people charged the Capitol steps, and their huge emphasis on Jane Fonda's appearance (knowing the gut reaction of their target audience) with no mention of any other speakers that were present. There was this 12 year old named Maria who spoke to the Washington Mall crowd, she was very inspirational and the best speaker of the whole event--I look forward to what she will do in the future!

Most telling for me--hundreds of thousands of protestors and not one arrest!!!
