Still the lies. US News agencies lie about “violence” in London

• An estimated 250,000 people joined the TUC anti-cuts march through central London
• The police arrested [b]a total of 9 people[/b], the clashes between police and “activists” had nothing to do with the main demonstration.
• More than a dozen stores on Oxford Street were occupied by UKUncut, as part of a separate but linked demonstration against the cuts, they have nothing to do with the TUC. They targeted Fortnum & Mason who have dodged tens of millions in tax.

The Metropolitan Police press office stated that today’s march has been largely peaceful and well ordered, with a small number of violent disruptions and just nine arrests

The Guardian reported

Matthew Taylor says UKuncut feel misrepresented by media coverage, saying that its occupation was not violent.

I have just spoken to Ukuncut protesters inside Fortnum and Mason and contrary to an earlier report [5:06] there has been no violence and the atmosphere remains positive. They also say that reports that it was a “rogue group” that has occupied Fortnum and Mason are untrue – they are all Ukuncut activists.

Nine arrests, when hundreds of thousands marched.

An entirely separate mob targeted banks and even the Police are reporting that they had nothing to do with the hundreds of thousands who turned up to protest.
So why are American news agencies telling lies about London?

    Here is another lie the US press is perpetuating. They say that Khalid is going to be tried at Guantanamo Bay.

    Obama promised that Gitmo would be closed in his first year of office.

    It is not possible that Obama lied, is it?

    No it isn’t you freaking ill-informed, propaganda-spreading idiot. The reason is because CONGRESS didn’t allow it to happen. Why don’t you get your pin head out of the right wing echo chamber long enough to actually ingest some facts.

    No, Obozo was the one who didn’t close Gitmo. Congress had nothing to do with it.

    How do you liberal chumps feel being left high and dry by your messiah?
