Honduras update

It looks like the forces of democracy are standing strong and wannabe strongman Manuel Zelaya will not be allowed to return to Honduras as president. It would be nice if the Obama administration would take this opportunity to reconsider its decision to side with the likes of Raul Castro, Daniel Ortega and Hugo Chavez, but don’t hold your breath.

It’s also a good idea to take a skeptical look at how the media is covering this story, specifically I point you to this Agence France Presse account:

Hundreds of white-clad demonstrators on Wednesday protested against Zelaya's return in the capital, where the situation has become increasingly polarized.

Hundreds?

I encourage you to look at these pictures and tell me if “hundreds” is accurate or whether “thousands” or “tens of thousands” would be more representative of what actually happened. (HT: Instapundit)

Actually, no serious person is sure what the conservative majority will do here. That's common in these politically charged cases. Meanwhile, literally nobody doubts what the *Democrat-appointed* justices will do. So who is "deeply partisan" again? https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/12/01/supreme-court-abortion-argument-roe-dead/

Doing some research and checked out @TheDispatchFC front page. It turns out the answer to every single one of these is "No." But one doesn't have that simple explanation on the main page. Why?
