It’s not just the WaPo...even the local news channels, which usually inflate various liberal marches and demonstrations...barely covered the event. If you were a resident of Arlington or DC....unless you were there, you really didn’t catch the full size and scope.

Big deal.

These supposed "ombudsmen" regularly criticize their papers' reporting as biased in one sense or another. Nothing changes.
