Quotes from 2003
By Michael Rappaport

Tim Blair has a long list of his favorite quotes from the year. (Hap tip: Instapundit.) One that caught my eye:
    "The last thing we expected was to be the first to publish anything about the [antiterrorism protests in Iraq]. It felt both good and awful at the same time. Good for scooping Reuters, AFP, AP, and other wire services and media stations. And awful for the people that depended on these services for their news. I'm telling you there were reporters from every station in the world at the demos that day and yet only a few mentioned them at all." -- Iraqi blogger Zeyad
(Emphasis added). I wonder why the reporters failed to mention the protests?
