    So there were a bunch of protest rallies across the US against Bush today, right?

    So why can I find practically no mention of it in the mainstream US news? Only Reuters seems to be covering it.

    Today? Haven't heard anything about that. There were a bunch last week due to the 2,000th death.

    Protestor stories are hit-or-miss. Most people think protestors are professional instigators. I also believe the government also prevents large scale protests, like when NYC denied peace protestors a venue in Central Park.

    Here is something more relevant: CBS News has Bush approval at -22%, from +4% last year.

    Sarcasm again? Whats truly ironic is the Right wing having almost boundless success manipulating the media, and then calling it liberal media. Clinton gets impeached for getting a hummer, but Bush can lie to congress, reveal a CIA agents name, totally botch Iraq and almost nothing is done.

    Jeez, I read your posts and have a good idea of your stance on things usually.:rolleyes:

    Are mine too intelligible?;)

    Every time I hear the term liberal media used to describe anything other than air america/daily kos type stuff my foot starts surging uncontrollably at crotch height. I hurts to know just how mush minded folks can be.
