37. If I Were a Protester
and someone put a mike in my face and asked what my message was, I would say "No War in Iran" or whatever I was out there for. The point of protest is publicity, and that was an open platform on national TV.

And outside of one guy who said "Stop the War, Stop the Torture," they all ingored the questions, cursed at the reporter, or gave him the finger.

I don't care if it was Fox. They made all the protesters look like complete idiots. In fact, especially if it's Fox you don't want to reinforce every negative stereotype the viewers have. What do they think they're out there for?
