Large protests occurred around the U.S.A. on Saturday, Jan 27, 2007. The U.S. people voted overwhelmingly last November against the ruling party, in a loud voice shouting NO MORE WAR, proclaiming with the power of our vote that we have no confidence in the Republican Party and the idiots who have led us into this folly. We hoped that the President would listen. But he has made it clear this has simply firmed his resolve to abandon all reason and push on forward with this illegal and ridiculous war he has foisted upon us. No war is moral, but this war in particular is the height of folly and an absolute fraud perpetrated upon the American people and the world.
I bought the newspaper today, Monday, two days after the protest rallies, and there was zero coverage of them in the newspaper. Presumably there was coverage yesterday, on Sunday, but I didn't buy the paper that day. I just went through Google News, Yahoo News, CNN, New York Times, etc, all major news outlets, and there is no hint of any protest rally having happened just two days ago. Fortunately some coverage happened.
