US Media and Olmert

Massive protests have met ex Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert in his recent tour of the US. Attempted citizen arrests in San Francisco, Atlanta, and Chicago. Disruptions of speeches, and police action against protesters also took place... yet, there was zero coverage of these events by US news outlets. Talk about reinforcing existing perception about the media here.

Thank god for citizen journalists and outlets like YouTube
