Nit-Picking the Captions : Funny how, in the caption of the photo of the seemingly lone Italian supporter of America, it is mentioned that at the same time, there was a protest against Pres. Bush.

The captions of the protest photos, on the other hand, did not mention any demonstrations in support of the President.

Bias? Nah.
