If the NY Times ignores this, then did it happen? If USA Today twisted the facts, then whats written in history books?

All the news thats fit to print:
The "liberal" media Wags the War?

October 11, 2002

Michael Wilson wrote the New York Times article "Thousands at Central Park Rally Oppose an Iraq War." The article (below, A) never made it to the print edition (below, B). Nor did any stories make the Washington Post about any of the hundred thousand protesters around the country on October 6. Worse yet, USA Today grabbed the story and photo of this event from the news distribution service Reuters, which claimed 10,000 protesters (below, C). USA Today used the Reuters 10/6/02 photo and claimed "demonstrations have drawn dozens to several hundred protesters at scattered locations," purposely only printing information that doesn't contradict their story (below, D). Public manipulation by the "free" press is not new, and can be documented back to Upton Sinclair's "The Brass Check" in 1920. You can see an example of New York Times misreprentation shown back to WWII (below, E).

Michael Wilson wrote this article about
thousands in the streets on Oct 6, 2002

As you can see, no protest news made it to the
Region section (or anywhere) of the New York Times on October 7.

Instead, they preferred Michael Wilson's article on the 2012 Olympics- On the eve of the Congressional discussion of war....

Reuters offered the article, news, and picture on the day of the protest.

Voices against war seem muted
By John Ritter

In recent weeks, demonstrations have drawn dozens to several hundred protesters at scattered locations around the country.



A glimpse into the rare and subdued media coverage of the Jewish holocaust.

During World War II, the atrocities of the Nazis were not an issue to our media. It wasn't until after the war that the world realized that a holocaust occured.

New York Times, June 27, 1942.
Snippet articles like this every few months were the only new coverage on this issue.

What atrocities have happened since? Can we trust the media to tell us the truth? Or can we only trust the media to fulfill their own agenda?
