Protesters and the media

What is with the media and the way they report protester activities? The reporting on yesterdays incident in Oakland would have me thinking that the police fired their dowels and bean bags at a group seated in a circle, holding hands and singing kum-baya.

And now we have this from Australia:

Australian PM embarrassed as anti-war protest halts Iraq-bound warship

Was Mr. Howard really embarrassed? Embarrassed by what? And did they really "halt" the ship? In the real world, they held the ship up for about an hour, while the Navy and police scraped these asshats off the hull. The media is something else.

EEK! Didn't give credit: this post was inspired by Insignificant Thoughts.
