War Protest Update

This article from PBS made the front page of Reddit:
Last weekend more than 100,000 people turned out in 11 cities across the country to protest the occupation of Iraq, in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, New York, among others.

Yet based on the miniscule amount of coverage the mass protests afforded in the mainstream media, it was as if the demonstrations never happened.
Yeah, when 0.003% of the county turns out for a demonstration in eleven cities, that is certainly news-worthy. And it was, BTW: This event was well covered by the MSM and foreign press.

11,100,000 more people attended NFL Football games the same weekend, though.
