Thousands upon thousands of students are protesting slash marching through central Mexico against biased media coverage that accentuates candidates of the old regime in upcoming presidential elections.

Enrique Pena Nieto is ahead by double digits in the presidential race, but the protesting students believe the newspapers and television stations are covering Nieto more heavily than other candidates especially Televisa.

The Televisa studios were lined up with students outside where Nieto was giving a live interview.

One student said:

"We want to be told the truth in this country. I look at this as a wake-up call."

Sounds good to us.

One march through Mexico City on Saturday drew tens of thousands of protesters against Nieto.

Wow, that's a lot of people!

Supporters of Nieto say the protestors are against their main man, but many at the rally say they have not yet decided who they will be voting for.

We're always happy to hear of people getting together to support their beliefs.
