First Cup September 16th
Here are some of today’s top stories:
Several thousand anti-war demonstrators marched through downtown Washington on Saturday, clashing with police at the foot of the Capitol steps where more than 190 protesters were arrested.
The group marched from the White House to the Capitol to demand an end to the Iraq war. Their numbers stretched for blocks along Pennsylvania Avenue, and they held banners and signs and chanted, “What do we want? Troops out. When do we want it? Now.”
No big surprise but the AP provided extensive coverage of A.N.S.W.E.R’s March in Washington with very little coverage to the Gathering of Eagles. The Counter protest was mentioned in the article, with 3 short sentences at the very end… Once again blantantly displaying the anti-American bias they so frequently do.
Also missing from the AP’s coverage is any information on the organizers of the Protest March. Well here is some background on A.N.S.W.E.R. from Discover the Network.
International ANSWER (an acronym for “Act Now to Stop War and End Racism”) is run by Ramsey Clark’s International Action Center, which is staffed by members of the Marxist-Leninist Workers World Party (WWP). ANSWER views the United States as a racist, imperialist, sexist, homophobic nation and the world’s chief violator of human rights — guilty of unspeakable atrocities, past and present, foreign and domestic.
Founded on September 14, 2001 (three days after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon), ANSWER held its initial mass demonstrations fifteen days thereafter, on September 29th in Washington, DC and San Francisco. These rallies drew 25,000 and 15,000 participants, respectively, to protest the Bush administration’s impending invasion of Afghanistan, whose Taliban regime had aided and abetted the al Qaeda terrorist network responsible for 9/11. In July 2002, ANSWER shifted its focus to denouncing the prospect of a possible U.S. invasion of Iraq.
NY Times “Betrayus Ad”
One of the reasons the NY Times gave for the “discount rate” that Movon.org got for the disgraceful ad was that it was purchased on a “standby rate”. Thereby not really ensuring when the ad would actually run.. Here is the last line of that Ad..
If they didn’t know what day the ad was to run then the word “today” would not be in the ad.
Perhaps the Times and most of the rest of the “Old Media” should stop the chirade and come right out and say they too are nothing more than outlets for the extreme left, groups like Moveon.org, International A.N.S.W.E.R. and the George Soros socialists..
