Anti-Obama Protest – in Honduras

OK, so it is not simply against Obama, but against foreign interference in Honduran political affairs. However Obama is probably the key target; externally only Chavez is likely to be as important as Obama to the future of democracy in Honduras, and he is unlikely to pay any attention to what Hondurans actually want.


Glen Reynolds of Instapundit is quite rightly critical of AFP for a story that describes a march of “hundreds” of people. While not a lie, it is far less informative than “thousands” or even I suspect “tens of thousands”, looking at the photo in the first link I gave, which Glen also uses. Ironically that is an AFP image! Most of the commercial news media really should be embarrassed by their coverage of Honduras over the last month.
