KATU Television is "covering" the protests with an online blog at http://www.katu.com/news/blogger.asp. There coverage has been laughable, from claiming that they were "assaulted" by protestors to the alleged drug use among the protestors, it is an entertaining read in a sick way and also an a good reminder of why indymedia is so important.
Strong odor of marijuana observed at protest scene
A KATU News photographer near the scene at Willamette Blvd. and Portsmouth where protesters are assembled reports that there is a strong odor of marijuana in the crowd. Police in riot gear have also doubled their presence outside the center where the president is addressing supporters.
