Video from the L.A. Times Obama-Khalidi protest



As promised, VideoJew Jay Firestone brought footage back from the protest outside the Los Angeles Times. (Quick refresher: McCain and some supporters are accusing the newspaper of protecting Barack Obama by refusing to release a video of Obama at a 2003 farewell celebration for Rashid Khalidi.) Jay’s re-edited video is below, though I’ve got to say that Khalidi’s past involvement with the PLO—McCain called him a spokesperson—is heavily disputed


Omri Ceren, a USC PhD student who writes the blog Mere Rhetoric, also stopped by the protest and posted photos and some footage.

I particularly liked the photo at left because it is true the media is dying. But it has nothing to do with the Times’ breaking this story back in April and now honoring the commitment they made to a source.
