    ...trustworthy just because it has covered something CNN has not. (I have big problems with CNN, and much of the U.S. megamedia, which I have seen from the inside.)

    Press-TV has promoted the idea that there was a million-person demonstration that nobody has video or photographs of. They report, without comment, utter bullshit like this from the so-called journalist Lizzie Phelan:

    Of course, before the uprising there were frustrations in Libya as there are within every singly country, but the Libyan people are an extremely non-confrontational people that will go to the ends of the earth to resolve in a non-confrontational way.

    And that is also reflected in the government in the way in which the government has tried over the decades and bent backwards to accommodate opposition forces within the government, which in a sense has backfired as we saw from the people who defected from the government and who sold out because they were in the pockets of the CIA andMI6 and the other Western intelligence services.

    So, from my experience in Libya the support for the government is absolutely widespread. There was a Guardian journalist in Libya who thankfully was deported from Libya for reporting that the reason why there is no opposition in Tripoli is because there are informers everywhere. A million people marched through the streets of Tripoli so the people have spoken for themselves.

    The Libyan government has bent over backwards to accommodate opposition forces? Only when digging their graves. Libyans are non-confrontational? Unbelievable. No, asinine. Does Phelan actually know any Libyans? "Support" for the government has nothing to do with informers being everywhere? Is she familiar with the "Greens" who for decades have chilled any opposition by doing the very informing that the Guardian reporter was deported for discussing?

    Show us the video of the million demonstrators. It should be easy. Surely, state television was on the scene, recording the event to show the world that Gaddafi is not the mass murderer he is reported to be.

    Don't tell me what you believe. Tell me what you do and I'll tell you what you believe.
