Oh, and the BBC...
NP - Katatonia - Soil Song
On the BBC, and other news organisations I guess, I'm absolutely shocked that the marches of last Saturday against the Iraq War made barely a ripple in the news. Barely a ripple. In London, at least 50 000 (police say 15 000, organisers say 100 000, so 50 000 is a sort of conservative estimate) marched. Over 200 demonstrations took place worldwide, from London to the US to Turkey to Australia to ... wherever. But when I looked for the news on the 19th, I couldn't even find a mention of it on the front page. I went specifically to the UK page, still no mention. I had to dig it up on the BBC website (link).
Seriously, whats that all about? Marches in 200 locations, and not a word? How many of you actually heard about these marches? Not many, I'd guess, and not because you don't watch TV. Because these marches were not reported. Shocking.
