Independent reporting of Occupy Wall Street
Errata Security ^ | 10/9/2012 | Robert David Graham

I was unhappy with the poor journalistic coverage of the #OccupyWallStreet protests, so I went to Wall Street myself to see what’s going on, and report on it.

It’s the quality of the coverage, not the amount that's the problem. It’s been on the nightly news every night for the past week, but there has been little “serious” reporting.

“This report is worthless as well.”

Notice on the majority of new threads here the first comment is more often than not a moronic one sentence thread crapper?

For an “independent” report, I thought it was insightful and well written.

“Mythmaker” makes one of the best comments:

“We do not need to “take down the banks” or “take down wall street.”

What we need is the rule of law, specific bankers, hedge fund managers and politicians need to be held accountable for the laws that have been broken.”

AMEN.

Here's a two sentence post for you.

Shove your worthless observation up your pompous arse.

You disagree with me, such as claiming “these protests are staged political events”. I challenge you to cite evidence supporting your claims.

My evidence isn't forensic, it isn't admissible in court, its entirely circumstantial.

That said, I don't know how anyone could deny that they are completely political. ACORN and SEIU have already been identified as having been involved in organizing them. The big networks are promoting them daily. Lefwing politicians, including the president, are lauding the protestors. The agenda, as far as one can be determined, reeks of socialism.

Can I prove it? Of course not. But, to paraphrase Justice Stewart, I know political agitprop when I see it.

I've read a little bit of history of popular movements such as these, enough to understand that these people present a huge threat to my liberties, myway of life. I do not give a good g**damn about fairness. I'm not in the least interested in hearing what they have to say. I want to see them called out on who they are and what they want.
