You all have mentioned the presence of a large group of media folks at this gathering. Have any of you seen a report by any so-called MSMer? The only (published) report here on FR is by Armed Forces Press Service.

None that I have seen. I had a word with Kelly O'Donnell on Tuesday, after the President had finished speaking to the assembled group. I was walking back from the friendly photographer section - pro-troops guests - next to the enemedia section, and I wanted to let Ms. O'Donnell know why we dislike and distrust them. I said, "You know, we had a beautiful, patriotic rally on Saturday, with thousands of people who love this country and support our troops and their mission; and you guys were nowhere to be found. You totally ignored our rally and our counter protest of the leftists. You block our view here so we can't get photos, but the photos that you take, you don't even use. There is a reason why we don't like you all."

She stood there, dumbstruck. She looked like she had been hit square in the face.

I said almost the same thing to an AP photographer, too. And they all proved my point when I looked for their news and photos from the event. All of three photos were posted on the photo wire. All Reuters, IIRC. None from AP.

But maybe AP is still busy photoshopping theirs.

The DC chapter has earned this sort of honor time and time again.
It's inadequate simply to say we are proud of you, because we're all pretty jealous as well.

I’m so glad you took the opportunity to express “our” disgust. I wonder if she really took it to heart.

Your report is wonderful. I could really feel myself being there giving that hug to W. You folks truly deserve the recognition for your support of the troops and the nation all these years.

And you were very polite, too. I’m glad that you spoke to her.

Excellent post....am glad you spoke to her. I’ve been bantering back and forth with a local media person wrt equating legal immigrants with illegal immigrants and migration in general. All they have to do is speak to the folks who have immigrated here “legally”...and find out just exactly “how they feel” about people attempting to get a free ride by jumping/crossing the border under cloak and darkness. Many legalized immigrants spent years waiting to get their citizenship. They are so proud and happy because they had to do a LOT, and wait a long time to attain their new status. But for some reason, the media ignores their opinions. The media person said he understood my opinion, and suggessted I send a to the letter to the editor...and that he would pass on my comments about utilizing the correct labels.

Thanks, Kim!! I haven’t been checking pings lately, either, due to “other things”, so am glad I saw this.

Hugs!!

OORAH, Takoma! She should hear that everytime she goes out among 'the un-washed'.

Thank you from [Mrs] T and myself. While FR was officially represented by a small group, there were a lot of other FReepers, and Eagles, that belonged to the other organizations. We met several of them and they sat at our table.

And we enjoyed harassing the media.

I just found out that some pics of the Sept. 18 affair are posted on the Whitehouse site. Ron, the fellow in this pic, just gave me a heads-up.
