BoingBoing reports that the front page of the Washington Post this morning featured a nice big photo of an Oakland police officer bending down to pet a cute little kitty, just above a story about last night's tear gassing headlined "Protesters wearing out their welcome nationwide."
The thing that really bugs the hell out of me is that these mainstream newspapers always hide behind claims of objectivity. There's no such thing as objective journalism, and just about every paper that claims to be objective is really pushing a conservative agenda on the few readers they have left. But this bullshit is beyond the pale. That Post page displays an overt attempt to push an agenda on readers, and everyone who works for the Washington Post should be ashamed of themselves today.
