But Barack's a star already. Let's shine a light on someone else. Mytwords is an idiot. A stupid dumb ass who blogs as though it's 2005. What an idiot. At Corrente Mytwords wants you to know:
My previous post on NPR Check showed the disproportionate and favorable coverage that a puny rally of 100-200 Tea Party rightwingers generates on NPR. So what happened when, this past March, hundreds of anti-war protesters showed up at the White House and over 100 were arrested - including Daniel Ellsberg? On NPR, the public news outlet for the Ministry of Truth, it never happened. And what about when 27 anti-SOA protesters are arrested after a march of 100-200. Want to guess where that one goes on NPR? Memory hole again. All right, so maybe hundreds just doesn't show up on the radar when you're busy bootlicking the far right; how about thousands marching against war? Are you ready?NPR didn't cover it? Where was Democracy Now!? Where was Pacifica?
No where. You stupid idiot. You're like a partisan Democrat slamming Republicans while Barack pulls another war out of his illegal hat.
And the idiot doesn't even know that the largest protest that day wasn't in DC (I was at the DC protest unlike the little whiney ass Mytwords). What a stupid f**king idiot. Know what you're writing about or shut the f**k up.
The protests were Saturday, March 19th. C.I. covered them at length in her Monday, March 21st snapshot.
I'm so sick of this twits like Mytwords who appear to wake up saying, "I hate NPR! How can I trash them today?"
NPR deserves a lot of trashing. For things they do. But if you're whining that they didn't do something, you better be damn sure first that other people did. The Nation magazine ignored the protests at their website, The Progressive ignored it at their website, go down the list. Quit acting like NPR ignored it -- when, in fact, NPR actually blogged about it at their website which is more than most of the 'left' outlets bothered to do.
