What If They Threw A Pro-Israel Rally And No One Came?

Eh, who cares about that. What if 35,000 people showed up for a pro-Israel, anti-Iran rally and not a single media organization carried the story?

Bear in mind, this would be the same MSM that will give an anti-war rally numbering in the tens prominent placement on their website.

CNN did that couple years back-- 60 people showed up for an anti-war rally. It was the top story in a list of stories on the CNN website. (To clarify: It wasn't the big headline story, but it was at the top of the list of headlines to the side of the headline story.)

So-- an anti-war rally of 60 people gets top placement on CNN; a pro-Israel rally of 35,000 gets not even a single story.

They way they... surround a story with silence, part 4,305.
