C-SPAN promotes Code Pink during their disruption of Heritage Foundation Panel

It seems as if Michael Savage is right about C-SPAN - C-SPAN has no problem promoting radical left-wing groups while censoring right-wing groups.

As I was winding down last night (Thursday) I came across a replay of the Heritage Foundation's panel discussion on the Petraeus-Crocker report. That it began with protests by some members of Code Pink was not so surprising, since they had disrupted Petraeus' report a few days before. What was surprising was that as Code Pink was disrupting the panel and giving their speeches on the stage standing in front of the panel C-SPAN gave a description of the group - referring to the group by name - and even giving Code Pink's website address!!

What does this tell us?

It tells us that if a radical left-wing group such as Code Pink gets up and disrupts a panel discussion that C-SPAN will help promote such a group.

When it comes to those on the right, this isn't the case. When is the last time you have seen C-SPAN promote any right-wing counter demonstrations in response to the anti-war hippies that descend on DC? I can't recall any.
