Wall Street protests - not on any news channel - This is democracy

US news channels are keeping quiet about ongoing Wall Street protests.
UN resolution against Syria was double vetoed by Russia/China which also did not make it to US news channel. You can see that on BBC.
South Carolina (a repug state) requires drivers to buy liability insurance or pay uninsured motorist registration fee of $550. Repugs are silent but complain of Obama requiring buying of health insurance.
I do not particularly like that but if Obama can not get national health insurance, it was a compromise with repugs who should rejoice since their buddies insurance companies are going to benefit from it.

Nonsense, that the UN security council won't act on Syria was reported on CBS news tonight, and the big 3 broadcast networks have had stories on the wall street protests every night - which is difficult for them, because it's a leaderless mob of losers with no intellectual underpinnings.

Indeed through the media only started covering OWS in a meaningful way once the protests started spreading nationwide and it looked to be continuing into the net month (days, not calender). Only when it became too big to ignore did the media start giving them the time of day.

There are too many socialists in OWS, but they're on the right track with going after the big banks. They just need to figure out that "capitalism" isn't the problem, and that it's the Fed and Congress that are giving Wall Street its billions, not the free market.

You can never have too many socialists. Too few, not too many. :smug:

Actually, they've WAYYYYYYY overreported them. I saw a report when there were only about a hundred people there. The nightly reports started when there were about a thousand, and the max is till only a few thousand. This, in a country of 300 million. The ones in LA have been reported like crazy, and they are only a small gaggle - and half of THEM are probably deranged homeless. :p

The reason the lib medi is overreporting them is because they hope they'll grow into a large leftwing movement to replace the defunct koolaid kids krusade of 2008, who've now been smacked in the face with a huge dose of reality that is the consequence of their immature actions then: no job, big education debt, and their own room again back at mom and dad's house.

The media is conservative.
