Free Gaza

I reported below on the "Free Gaza" movement which broke the Israeli/world blockade of Gaza, symbolically and at least a little more. You know how news organizations are always claiming they cover stories which are visually interesting? Don't you believe it. The New York Times (a print journal, obviously) did carry a short custom (i.e., not AP or Reuters) article on the arrival (unlike other papers, which didn't even do that much). But as near as I can determine, both from searching their web sites and watching various channels on TV, none of the U.S. broadcast media, network or cable, even mentioned the arrival (the BBC did).

One thing we know for sure, even without searching. No American politician, at least none affiliated with the Democrats or Republicans, mentioned it either.
