No Equivalency Part 2

Media Matter confirms my earlier post on the discrepancy between Left and Right extremism reporting by the MSM:

Behold the media's glaring double standard. Today, the Post puts the "tens of thousands" of Obama-hating tea bagger protesters on A1; makes it the lead story as a matter of fact.

Back in 2002, when more than 100,000 anti-war protesters gathered in
the nation's capitol to protest the Bush administration, the same WashPostdid its best to ignore them.

Again, the Left was legitimately protesting an illegal war and occupation, while the Right is protesting a black man in the White House. There is no equivalency.
