I’m tracking the so-called major media, looking for the major story about the Million Vet March…
To be fair, CNN, Fox, and NPR did cover the story, mentioning (mumble-mumble) thousand veterans showed up as promised, brought down the barricades, and occupied the memorials. Apparently, some politicians spoke, and The President barricaded The White House against rioters. (Actually, some protesters moved some barricades to in front of the Executive mansion!)
At least it was the lead on Drudge for a while…
No rioters were spotted.
There was no reported violence, or damaging of the historic sites, save the removal of the barricades. One protester was arrested for having handguns in his backpack in D.C.
And no report as to accurate numbers of attendees, either. It’s as though the MSM had an editorial agenda (?)
I was reminded of a Summer protest in front of the Arizona State Capitol. I think it was the weekend after Independence Day, so you know it was hot. The peaceful protesters were speaking out against yet another attempted action by the State and Federal governments, regarding guns and gun control. This was during the time of the Clinton so-called Assault Weapons Ban. Something like 250+ protesters were there, with appropriate signs and speakers. Seems to me Sheriff Mack was there. We drank a lot of bottled water.
And media vans drove around us, but, none stopped or filmed. We didn’t fit the agenda.
For comparison, earlier that year, six (6) people met a couple State legislators on the steps of the capitol to discuss something to do with abortion. THIS made state and national news.
Who are the most powerful persons in any newsroom? The assignment desk and the editors.
It’s all about the agenda.
