OPERATION BIAS CHECK -- DEBRIEFING
Newsflash! The so-called mainstream media is biased! It must be true - I saw it on the Today Show.
My fellow ProtestWarriors and I arrived early (4am, if you want to get a good spot) in the morning at Rockefeller Center and stood in line with the tourists. This is a great example of the impact that even just a couple of people can make, so take this as encouragement to make your voice heard even if you are small in numbers.
The crew does check the signs as people are let in, but we easily snuck ours through, as mine was covered with a façade that had "HAPPY BDAY LOLA!" scribbled across it. These two huge guys in front of me allow me to put my sign out over the rail in front of them, saying it was for my granny's 101st birthday. When they realized what the sign actually said, the Bubba to my right grabbed the sign out of my hands and threw it to the ground, and their Michael Moore-sized bodies closed in on me, pushing me back. But no matter - the damage was done.
The ProtestWarrior behind me was tall, and from his position he cleverly managed to move his sign up and down at just the right time to lull the weary camera man back into a long shot during Toby Maguire's interview.
Tomorrow's release of the Spiderman sequel was apparently the big news of the day, and if propaganda is a crime, we did a little bit of our own crime busting. In between the so-called news items (Laci Peterson, the latest teacher sex scandal, and the usual America-bashing spin), we got NBC to broadcast our message "DON'T BELIEVE THE LIBERAL MEDIA!" on national television.
While we were displaying our signs Matt Lauer was repeatedly referring to the Iraqis' pending trial of Saddam Hussein as a "show trial." To hear an American leftist describe the trial of a genocidal dictator, complete with his own defense attorney, as a show trial was truly infuriating. After so many dictators, i.e. Hitler, Idi Amin, Pol Pot, Stalin, Mao, and Castro, have gotten away with their genocidal crimes without being tried, it thrills our hearts to know that Saddam's crimes will be reviewed in a court of law by the people he brutalized - something freedom-loving people should celebrate. Unfortunately, Matt Lauer compares this process to the murderous trials of the innocents conducted by Stalin and Castro. Castro's televised trials in the late 1950's took about 15 minutes per innocent defendant, who was executed by firing squad immediately afterwards, no defense lawyers present. That's what "show trial" has always meant. And on the first day of the handover in Iraq, NBC and Mr. Lauer slander the new Iraqi regime and the Bush administration.
But thanks to talk radio, Fox News, a handful of newspapers, the internet, and fed up citizens across the country, America is no longer totally beholden to the liberal networks with their left-wing anti-America slant.

Well done, warriors!
I am so proud of you guys -- so impressed! WOW! Very cool!
Show trial? Saddam is responsible for the deaths of millions, and Lauer has the nerve to refer to his trial as a show trial? Despicable. Every time I think the left cannot possibly become more unhinged, they prove me wrong.
I saw a Michael Moore lookalike showing his love of freedom of speech by shoving the sign away.
Is this the picture?
When I first saw it I figured it was photoshopped since it looked too good to be true. Good job!
Maybe we could subject Saddam to a "Today Show trial."
Judge Couric: "Saddam, you didn't have any Weapons of Mass Destruction, did you?"
Saddam: "Of course not, Madame Judge. Those sarin shells were planted by the CIA!"
Judge Lauer: "And Saddam, you didn't kill hundreds of thousands of your own people, did you?"
Saddam (blinking coyly): "No! Those were all victims of economic sanctions applied by the evil U.S.!"
Judge Couric: "And Saddam, you never gassed any Kurds, did you?"
Saddam: "That's all lies! The Turks did it at the direction of Nato to discredit me!"
Judge Lauer, voice rising in indignation: "And Saddam, isn't it true that the Reagan Administration ordered you to attack Iran?"
Saddam (suprised): "Uh, YES! Yeah, that's it! I was doing the bidding of the CIA!!
Both judges, leaping to their feet: "Bailiff, RELEASE THIS POOR MAN! He is a victim of that most evil terrorist, George Bush! And call the Florida Supreme Court, we need to overturn the interim government and restore him to power!"
So like the Gestapo, they actually check all signs?
They just can't outsmart the smarter. Great job.
PROTEST WARRIORS ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And the pic will never die, it will be immortal.
Do you mind if I send your link to Joe Scarboro and others? I think it would be great if the guy ripping the sign from the hand of your warrior got some national news attention.
Bring this sign along, the next time you go!
Great job - LOL!
Great poster! : )
bump, and way cool!
PW 'tricksters' could easily sneak such a sign past the NBC "line monitors" by hiding the hinged bottom half with a false WE LOVE YOU! cover to be dropped down at just the right live camera moment.
Gee, I just might start watching The Today Show again!
This 'stealth technique' could work well at Clinton book signings, Mooremanure film debuts, pro-jihadist C*ANSWER demonstrations, or a host of other anti-US rallys and events.
C*ANSWER is just an outward sign of the pro-Jihadists' fatal disease afflicting their minds and souls
This will have Matt Lauer upset for years. He'll be just like the prisoners at Abu Garbage with his panties all in a twist.
Loosers, they must think Kerry is going to give them free fast food.
Hahaha, that was great! Good job people :-)
So are the two thugs employees of NBC positioned to keep people like you out? Or were you just unluck?
Great job thinking ahead with the decoy poster!!!
MY hats off to the - PROTEST WARRIORS.
YOU GUYS AND GALS ARE SO COOL......
The video is hilarious! Love it where you guys keep waving and smiling throughout! Showing some real cajones; you have lifted the spirits of thousands. Great morale booster!
Thank YOU!!! (From a fed up citizen.)
I saw it...I couldn't believe what I was seeing.
Kudos...this was bloody brilliant!!!
They show amazing savvy. They must have been monitoring the show (on a portable TV or something) because they knew just when to raise the sign to get it into the shot. And they kept the sign moving so it would catch the viewer's eye. It also looks they used two dummy signs to "frame" the third sign, the one with the real message. They raised the third sign right into the space between the other two, like a running back finding the hole between the linemen.
Very good work, very well coordinated. They're like the resistance engaging in small acts of sabotage against the liberal establishment.
way to go!!!
I'm very proud of y'all
You guys are great - skillfully done!
My congratulations and respect, and may I say that these are the stories that will be told by our MUCH FReer grandchildren: "How the West Was Won!"
That's hilarious -- great work.
Guys like you, make me have hope for this country!
You've just got to admire Launderer's chic concentration camp haircut juxtaposed against his slick Italian Gestapo suit. Anyone willing to leave the house looking like that ought to be on a 72-hour mental inquest hold.
That is a classic piece of Video! I just Forwarded that link to many who deserve to view that. Thank you for being so great!!!
The Protest Warriors rock! Great job!!
Great idea hope you get to use it soon!
Att-Boy! & Atta-Girl! to all involved!
Yow! I can't stop laughing!!!
Don't photoshop a masterpiece.
Now we ANOTHER person to go with a sign that says "Protestwarrior.com"
I hope this gets some major play on Fox. This is at least worth a chuckle at 8.
