Posted on 10/16/2011 10:21:04 PM PDT by Nachum
Big Journalism has learned that the Occupy Washington DC movement is working with well-known media members to craft its demands and messaging while these media members report on the movement. Someone has made the emails from the Occupy D.C. email distro public and searchable. The names in the list are a veritable whos who in media. Journolist 2.0 includes well known names such as MSNBCs Dylan Ratigan, Rolling Stones Matt Tiabbi who both are actively participating; involvement from other listers such as Bill Moyers and Glenn Greenwald plus well-known radicals like Noam Chomsky, remains unclear.

Blink. . .
These journalists are the lowest forms of life. They feign independence and objectivity while doing the bidding of their liberal masters.
The media was involved in Fast & Furious as well. The Washington Post, NY Times and ABC were dragging honest firearm dealers through the mud by writing accusations based only on BATFE information....no independent investigation.
This is why Obama and Holder knew they could get away with Fast & Furious.....the media would ignore gun dealers who would claim they were working with BATFE, but continue to spout the line that US dealers are the source of the “iron river” of gun flowing into Mexico.
Nobody will care that the media is in bed with the OWS protesters.
Look at how they covered for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac after the financial meltdown.
Just saw at CNN that their poll shows a preference for the fleabaggers to the tea party at 70% to 30%. If that is true sentiment of this country, I think it is time to leave. Any suggestions?
CNN and the mainstream left have to try to get in front of these protests, because the protesters are often furious with the Obama administration. These protesters are as angry as the TEA Party, with even more motivation: they’re unemployed.
While the media focuses its energy (and the nation’s attention) on the fringe elements with the intent of creating an image of mass far-left demonstrations, the fact is that a large number of these protesters are white people who, like the TEA Party, believe that we have been sold out and don’t intend to vote for Obama (again). Another key difference that should not be ignored is that while the TEA Party protested about the impact on their children & grandchildren, these protesters are furious about the impact on themselves - they already feel the sting of long-term unemployment, and the term “down the road” has already arrived...
Antisemitic Marxists revealed. Where’s their phony MSM outrage now?
Texas looks pretty good.
