    Is it just me?
    Or did anybody else notice it?

    When Cindy Sheehan was protesting the war at Mr Bush's vacation home she got 24/7 news coverage. Now she's protesting the war at Mr Obama's vacation home and for the most part the media is ignoring it.

    I guess she stopped being a useful idiot for the media.

    The media isn't allowed in the guest bedroom.

    Nah.

    Q: What happens when CNN, MSNBC, Fox or any of the others mention Sheehan nowadays?

    A: People change the channel.


    Simple as that really. She's reached the media-whore saturation level about 2 years ago. She doesn't get ratings. And AAMOF, she actually drives people away at this point.

    The media decided that.

    She was a useful idiot when she was protesting the Bush administration, now that it's the Obama administration, they (the MSM) don't like it.

    See, I disagree. The media is nothing more than a reflection of what the public wants IMO. And the public doesn't want any more loony-bird Sheehan.

    They want all new loony birds.

    The Zionist controlled media wants the war to continue, so she doesn't get air time.

    It's not cool to protest the war anymore.
    Oh wait, it was protesting Mr Bush, not the war, otherwise it would still be cool.

    Aww. I thought this thread was about me... :(

    My name isn't Sheehan, tho.

    Oh, and she's old news.. Nobody gives a rip about her - she's had her 15 min of fame, so the medias paying no attention to her.
