Media Have a Chance to Prove Themselves in Crawford

The Washington Post mentions that today in Crawford, Texas, there will be a counterdemonstration to the one conducted by anti-war mom Cindy Sheehan and her political allies.

"[T]he Heart of Texas chapter of FreeRepublic.com, an online conservative forum, has scheduled a demonstration here for Saturday to counteract Sheehan's protest and show support for Bush and the war."

With journalists breathlessly monitoring her every word and making breaking news out of the monumental event that "Bush motorcade passes anti-war mom's protest," we'll see how the media cover a counterprotest in the same city.

Unfortunately, the media's track record is bleak, as time and again they yield to the siren call of liberal media advocacy.
