Media Fatigue in the West

Although today's Independence demonstrations were the largest yet, they did not get as much coverage in the Western press. As I suggested yesterday, I thought that the opposition could have "rested" today as it was difficult to be in the limelight while 2 other major events were taking place, i.e. the Syrian-Lebanese meeting in Damascus and tomorrow's Hizbullah-led demonstrations. There is so much that the Western media will bear about the Middle-East. Right now, the U.S. is immersed with the Michael Jackson trial and the future of its social security system.
