Jordanians burn portraits of Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden

I posted about this yesterday. I can't believe this is not getting better coverage.

Compare what Middle East Online reports with what The Herald reports.

MEO: They burnt portraits of Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi, the Jordanian suspected mastermind of the bomb plot, and 10 members of a dismantled terror cell, including four who were killed.

Herald: Nothing on the burning of bin Laden and Zarqawi portraits. Why?

Likewise no mention in The Scotsman or
The Washington Times

But which UK paper did report the burning of bin Laden's portrait? I was amazed but tip my hat to them.

The Guardian!

When the demonstrators reached parliament, they burned pictures of bin Laden, his alleged Jordanian associate Abu-Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of the foiled plot, Azmi al-Jayousi, and his accomplices.

Why is this not getting better coverage? You let any thug in the world burn the US flag and it's a media frenzy. Some 250,000 Jordanians march and burn bin Laden's portrait and there is very little reporting let alone pictures and video all over the television and press.

What's up with that?
