Dear Mr. Lamb:

C-SPAN usually contributes to the public debate with fair and balanced coverage of important issues. However, your one-sided coverage of the January 18 “anti-war” rally in Washington, D.C, was extremely disappointing. You devoted 11 hours to airing the rally and an interview with two of the sponsors. You ignored the patriotic counter-demonstration the same day. You had two of the speakers on Washington Journal but didn’t include any opposing view. What’s worse, you misled viewers by telling them that International ANSWER was behind the protest. In fact, research shows that it is a front of the communist Workers World Party. Your cameras also failed to show any of the communist banners and signs that Accuracy in Media saw and photographed on the rally grounds. I strongly suggest that you invite Cliff Kincaid of AIM to appear on Washington Journal and give the other side of the story.
