SF Chronicle Makes Any Protest Of Newsom Seem Like A Physical Attack
by Chronicle Lies
Monday Jun 30th, 2003 8:43 AM
The SF Chronicle has always been on the conservative side, but their recent coverage of Newsom protests is downright slander. People carrying banner protesting Newsom's attacks on the homeless are made to sound like stalkers attacking Newsoms person.
Here is the SF Chronicle's coverage of pride that appeared on their front page.

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2003/06/30/MN107379.DTL

Since when has carrying a banner been illegal. Why is it only when people protest Gavin Newsom that the police react this swiftly and this harsh? (remember when the police beat up Queer protesters when Gavin appeared at the new LGBT center?) Why is the Chronicles coverage of Newsom protests so one sided? Even during the Cash Not Care campaign they didnt sink to this level of dehumanizing the protests.
