Corporate Media coverage of the protests?

I am curious to how much coverage so far has been given in the corporate national media and even local media about the protests.
I am curious to how much coverage so far has been given in the corporate national media and even local media about the protests. A protest not heard is not an effective protest. So did a large percentage of the population even know there were protests. I am assuming most corporate media so far has focused on Rita, the Iranian nuclear issue and the cute puppy dog story of the week.

I am not in the Fascist Corporate Republic of Amerika right now. I saw a quick mention of a small protest in Washington DC that was met by Support the Troops people on CNN for like a second. Ofcourse the Support the Troops marchers could even be people against the war but CNN reports it as just Support the Troops to get people to think they are pro-Iraqi war.

So are these posts in the Indies praising the vigils on the bridges just the so called left patting themselves on the back while the rest of the country ignores them or does not even know that there were protests or even what the protests were about?
hmmm...didn't see 25.Sep.2005 22:02

even the slightest mention,

not a word about the protests in the net versions (on either sunday or monday)put up by the so-called paper of record, the n.y. times. (print versions may be different)

guess silence is golden afterall.
