Today, Charlie Pierce has a post on his Politics Blog at Esquire titled The Face of Disgrace. The post is short—but points out the mainstream media’s failure to cover a few important events that occurred in this country since the beginning of 2001.
An excerpt from Pierce’s post:
On January 20, 2001, thousands of people assembled in Washington to protest the dubious installation of George W. Bush as the 44th president of the United States.
The major media covering the event ignored them.
So they weren’t there. So it didn’t happen. But President George Bush did.
Pierce also included a link to a clip from the movie Duck Soup in his post. I’m including the movie clip here for your convenience:
