Inauguration Day coverage in the corporate media was full of smiles and celebration. Those who watched might think that everything was great. The corporate media failed to report on those who expressed dissent about the direction the country is headed. In fact, MSNBC told its viewers there were no protests. We want to recognize those who showed up because they believe, as Howard Zinn said, "dissent is the highest form of patriotism."
