Saint Cindy the Martyr

"Stephen Spruiell, over at National Review, is doing his best to keep ABC News honest and stop them from martyring Cindy Sheehan. Sheehan says she was only jostled when police broke up a peace rally in New York City. The police arrested organizer Paul Zulkowitz when they broke up the rally. Zulkowitz had failed to get a permit for the rally. Despite the wire copy used by ABC News clearly using Cindy Sheehan's own words that she was 'jostled' when the police broke up the rally, ABC News chose a headline that proclaimed 'Peace Activist Sheehan Hurt at Rally' with a subheading that read 'Peace Activist Cindy Sheehan Says She Was Roughed Up at New York Rally Scuffle.' Those words do not accurately reflect what Sheehan said. And, not to nitpick, but perhaps 'Anti-War Activist' would be more accurate than 'Peace Activist.' Remember, you can do your part to respond to Cindy Sheehan and the Peaceniks. Go here for details."
