The mainstream media seal their own dwindling fates by not acknowledging the true intent of the masses of people who showed up that day.

We are being treated with contempt by our government and we are being treated with contempt by the media – that hurts. Especially when the major theme of the day was based around the concept of empathy. A foreign concept to those who support the system as it is and a major failing.
