Fox Shuts Out the Protesters

Reported by Melanie - August 29, 2004 -

I just watched an hour (August 29, 2004 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. ET) of Fox News Weekend with host Brian Wilson. Since this is a "news" program, I was looking for coverage of the thousands upon thousands of protesters streaming down the street outside Madison Square Garden, where this show originated. (The protest is live now on C-Span. At 2:44 p.m. ET they flashed a note saying that protesters have been streaming past Madison Square Garden since noon Eastern time - that's a lot of people!)

While a few words were spoken during this show about the "people outside," no coverage whatsoever was given to the protesters or the issues they are concerned about.
