Viggo is News

So while the N&O seems willing lately to focus on the misdeeds of N.C. Democrats, they don't seem to have changed their approach to the national news. In an effort to keep the anti-Bush protestors in the news, the paper reported the dramatically important update that Viggo Mortensen visited the protest site today. Hold the presses! No word on what Viggo had to say during his visit.

I would expect that just as the paper worked out every angle to keep the Delay 'story' and the Rove 'story' alive, they will keep this protest story in the forefront as long as possible. Meanwhile, a good story about a U.S. and Afghan offensive near Kandagal is pushed to the back page in favor of Viggo.
