Journalism: A cache of new Occupy Wall Street emails shows several press types offering advice to the protesters. We'd be shocked, except the mainstream media have been openly helping the Occupy movement all along.
In one of the hundreds of Occupy Wall Street emails now posted online, MSNBC's Dylan Ratigan warns occupiers that they shouldn't issue demands. "The focus on simple shared principle and intent to align with all who agree with that principle is a unique strength," he advised.
Dylan isn't an activist. He's not a PR guy, either. He's allegedly a journalist, and one with a long list of journalistic credentials on his resume. Nevertheless, the left dismissed Ratigan's and other journalists' email help, noting that they are avowed liberals. Maybe so, but try to imagine the reaction if Bill O'Reilly were caught emailing tips to the Tea Party.
In any case, the real crime here isn't a few emails from left-wing journalists, but the fact that the rest of the "unbiased" mainstream press has been overtly helping the protesters as well.
Don't think so? Try to find press accounts of speakers at Occupy rallies who have overtly called for violence. Or coverage of the rising incidents of anti-Semitism, expressed in verbal abuse of Jews and signs like: "Google the following: Wall St. Jews, Jewish billionaires, Jews & Federal Reserve Bank." Or the anti-Americanism on display: flags flown upside down, flags with "Sold Out" painted on them, flags trampled underfoot. In Portland, occupiers sang along to "F*** the USA."
Nothing to see here, folks.

The Marxists are pulling out all the stops. IMHO they think that if they don’t win next year they will have wasted billions of dollars (even some of their own) and will forfeit an opportunity for many years to come to turn the world into a Communist hell hole run by themselves, for themselves.This plan has been in the works for years and they hate to see the “Big O’ go down in flames. Soros won’t live forever nor will his fortune be readily available either. They blew it in the 30’s during the depression and don’t want to wait for another 75 years to try again. Just MHO.
I find it interesting that NBC had someone working at their business channel giving advice on investing that was such a radical, anti-American, Commie Pinko. They definitely knew about this dope because he was seamlessly folded into PMSLSD.
They are being fed, paid and schooled while we sit by and watch. They are handing out the candy so more will come. Was the teaparty fed, paid and schooled? What if they were, would they be crying bloody murder, you bet! We see the transparency that zero has been preaching since the begining. We now here that WH staff is involved with this as well. My take on this is....This is a movement that is supported and encouraged to do what is necessary to disrupt the GOP convention as well as the lead up to the 2012 election and maybe more, like a suspension of the election due to the violence. Within the ranks or soon to be added are the real nasties, the anarchists, radicals communists and alike that are going to be responsible for lighting the fuse. Nice, peaceful and friendly now until the order is given.
There is nothing authentic in any of these groups. There is no “protest” or grass roots concern for the middle class. It is Stalinism pure and simple. It is an attempt to gain political and financial power through lies and intimidation.
They are actually two different people. I made that mistake to.
LOL. I’m sure that is the spin you would get from GE if asked about it.

For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction.
Its not just MSNBC its NBC thats pushing for Anarchy. They need viewers and nothing sells like bad news.
Our local Fox News just started the news with a five minute report on Occupy Chicago. Live reporter on the scene, showing a group of maybe 50 occupiers. The reporterette had a list of their “demands” which included forgiveness of student loans.
this topic title gave me an idea !

They are having a herd of cats problem.
