Evelyn Nieves of the Washington

Evelyn Nieves of the Washington Post is a notorious cheerleader for the antiwar forces. Today her article is titled “Antiwar Sentiment Galvanizes Thousands.” She describes A.N.S.W.E.R.’s role as sponsor of yesterday’s demonstrations and acknowledges that A.N.S.W.E.R. is “the most radical of the networks mobilized against an attack on Iraq,” but doesn’t expound on their Stalinist politics. She repeats the most optimistic (inflated) estimates of the demonstrators’ numbers and describes the demonstrators as though they were a typical state fair crowd, only with more veterans: “The marchers on a day reminiscent of late spring represented a cross-section of the nation, from World War II to Gulf War veterans, baby boomers and their children, teenagers and many older citizens.” It’s annoying, but I don’t suppose anyone is fooled.
