Three cheers -- one for each arrestee -- for the demonstrators. We, in LA, should do likewise and organize a demonstration against the pro-war propagandists (aka the mainstream media). Who better to organize such a demo than indymedia!!!

Police Arrest Three Men After Protest Over CNN's War Coverage
The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) - About 200 people rallied against CNN's coverage of the war in Afghanistan, leading to three arrests.

"CNN, half the story, all the time," they chanted Saturday at CNN Center.

The protesters said millions of refugees and residents in Afghanistan face starvation but CNN isn't telling the story.

A network spokeswoman did not return a call seeking comment on Sunday.

Several of the demonstrators wore bandanas over their faces.

George Ward, 21, from Columbia County, was charged with criminal trespass. Samuel Sabel, 21, from Montgomery, Ala., was charged with violating Georgia's anti-mask law, which dates from the height of the Ku Klux Klan era, along with simple battery and obstruction. Matthew James Wallace, 20, of North Carolina, was also charged with violating the anti-mask law.
