WaPo - A Study in Contrasts

Compare and contrast: the print version of the WasPo's Metro section has this as a front-page story. Yet it totally dismissed this when it happened under its office windows in January.

On the one hand: 1,000 "irate" students emailing and sending vitriol to Facebook. On the other hand: half a million marchers on the streets of Washington, D. C. The former gets plaudits, back-slaps, and affirmation from the WaPo. The latter - nothing.

Methinks the WaPo is in the business of creating news (and reality?), guiding public opinion, and swaying persons in a non-heavenward direction, all to the drum beat of the spirit of the age and the prince of this world.
