3. I didn't see it, but it's probably better coverage than
the News of Freep gave it. I sent a LTTE on the News site:

Talk about unbalanced reporting! The protest outside the Troy Marriott and Nancy Skinner's press conference deserved more coverage than they got. The fact that Vice President Cheney and President Bush make fundraising appearances all over the country but never attend the funerals of fallen servicemen is a disgrace. Nancy tried to bring attention to this fact, but this was not widely reported. Cheney's appearance at Selfridge got all the press -- the other side of the coin deserved just as much coverage.

My hubby caught the story on the 5 p.m. news on XYZ, but all later broadcasts only showed the Selfridge part of the story and nothing from Troy. All channels killed that part of the story. I was really bummed.
