What is Mainstream?

Right now CNN is yakking up a storm about Scott Peterson and Robert Blake. 24 Hours of News has somehow degenerated to 15 Minutes of gossip, repeated 96 times per day.

In the meantime, real news is happening all around the world. H/T Today's Winds of War.
  1. [UPDATE: This item has been proved false.] Today in Syria there is a military coup going on! Bashir Assad is holed up in Aleppo coordinating his loyal special forces, as Damascus has been taken over by a junta against withdrawal from Lebanon.
    Since yesterday , Damascus is under the de facto control of the Syrian Army, under the command of Syrian Interior Minister Ghazi Kanaan, and supported by Syrian Intelligence General Rustom Ghazaleh, Syrian military General Ali Safi, and Firas Tlass son of former Minister of Defence, Mustafa Tlass. The group rebelled against the decision of President Bashar el Assad to withdraw from Lebanon and seized the Damascus military yesterday.

  2. Today and yesterday in Iran there were massive popular demonstrations against the theocratic government!

  3. Today the Iraqi National Assembly met for the first time.
All the links to the important stories were on blogs, not on mainstream media sites. If you want plenty of pablum about Robert Blake's acquittal, Scott Peterson's death sentence, or Jacko's courtroom pajamas then head right over to the mainstream media.
