I want to congratulate the Washington City Paper and Kevin Diaz for what I believe is an excellent article detailing the process leading up to the past weekend’s protests, as well as the protests themselves (“Puppet Show,” 4/21). I believe you were fair and thorough, and, unlike the Washington Post and the idiots running the city’s TV media, you didn’t miss the point and exclude the protests’ messages themselves.

The drivel that has been coming out of the mainstream media has been unflinchingly pro-police, virulently anti-protester (in a way that I find belittling and offensive), and completely ignorant of the major issues and implications of globalization.

Thanks for making me believe that some members of the media were actually paying attention on Sunday and Monday.
