On Jan 10,15,000 people marched in DC against the massacres in Gaza. Not one word in the Washington Post. Six days later, on Jan 16, protesters descended on the headquarters of the Washington Post, dumping several wheelbarrowloads of "defective merchandise" and shredding it to confetti!

The Washington Post's reporters have written stories about a number of these protests-by editors have chosen NOT to print them. The Washington Post may admit to "Red Cross Reports grisly find in Gaza" but unlike, say, Al-Jazeera, will NOT run the pictures of wounded and burned children left by US weapons in Israeli hands.

There was so much shredded newspaper on the entrances of the Washington Post on Jan 16, it looked like a rocket had hit a Washington Post newspaper box in front of the place!
