OP


I think it's the other way around man. The mass media was basically advertising for this protest, trying to make it a big deal, and it didn't happen.

There are currently about ~200 stories linked to this topic on Google News. That is like one news story for about every 10 people that showed up. That's called getting a lot more coverage than it deserved.

Although to be fair, most of the stories are about how it was a total dud instead of a big scary protest like was promised, so they mostly aren't overselling it (like your thread title and premise does). This 'day of rage' turned out more like a street festival with not much to recommend it for entertainment value so even the hipsters of New York decided to pass on it.

A couple of thousand people showing up to a protest in NYC is like the equivalent of a dozen people in a normal sized town. That many people gather around in NYC all the time. Actually...a dozen people in a normal sized town is probably a much bigger deal(to the people of that area).

Many, much larger protests have actually been ignored by the media over the years.

Here's a little story from the French press. They're estimating 700.
Did the protestors ever settle on which "one demand" they were going to make?

French coverage

The fact that there is no media coverage means that this is a legit, peaceful protest against TPTB.

Unlike the staged Tea Party "protests" that get national news coverage because the people financing them want the party's SOCIOPATHIC ignorance to be heard.

Until the Tea Party begins to scream loudly about getting corporate money out of Washington, they are a farce and I cannot take anyone who claims to be a member of that sham party seriously.

People can protest best when they feel oppressed, so they pretend "media blackout" where there is none and give it no rest.

Kudos to Russia Today for covering this.

I thought that I'd take a look at 3 sites for an honest assessment....CNN, MSNBC, CNBC.....vs what we are being told by COINTELPRO here.

CNN...


MSNBC and CNBC...



It appears as if 2/3rds of the above listed sites DID NOT report on this Wall St. Protest and only 1/3rd, CNN Money actually did.

How many links will it take to show you that there is no media blackout of this non evebnt. If thousands have showed up, they are cloaked liked many of the UFO"s and Motherships floating around the Earth. Links below to show there is no media black out !

From Drudge: www.ny1.com...
From Drudge : cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com...#?wtoeid=growl1_r1_control

From CNN: www.cnn.com...#/video/us/2011/09/18/nr-wall-street-protest.cnn?iref=allsearch



From Fox: www.foxnews.com...


Do I really need to go on with more links that totally disprove your media blackout ?

As for thoushands try hundreds....at least use sensationalism for a cause that matters not a bunch of hippie misfits who are protesting on a day that walll street is closed.

In order for their to be a live shot there has to be something to show....I watched as l;ive shot on CNN earlier of this un event and there was nothing but people sitting in lawn chairs. Are they suppose to show them all day to sastify you?

Media Blackout is so over played, every time i see that on here I know it is bs, i find many media sources on the so called media blackout. In fact i have even seen this one on CNN. They may be down playing the story, even saying that the protesters do not know what they want and that it is different for each protester. I do not know how much of that is true, but what i do know that when you put Media Blackout it loses creditably and some of us mighty seekers will just shrug it off.

On another note, i would like to know the number of protester. CNN said it was less then 20,000, i heard from other sources that it was 50,000. Anyone know what the real number is?

haha well ill say it again
the only way to truely change anything is to over throw the current governments, police and elite

they control all the money, money controls us..ie we have no hope unless we forcefully take back control


Or... Eliminate Their power over Others while vesting All with autonomous power over Self by flooding the world with what money represents: (meaningful) energy (expended). Electrogravitics, a science My father was working on through a top aerospace contractor in the 1950's, displays both "antigravity" (creates its own gravity field) and overunity. Overunity is the key to flooding the world with usable energy.

If We can accomplish that, as the cost of energy is removed down the line from all We create, eventually We reach a point where all is free. It's not the vegetables You traded for the bricks You needed. It was Your energy tilling, planting, weeding, harvesting and transporting the result of the free seed, free sun, free soil, free rain in exchange for the Brickmaker's energy to form and properly create the bricks Hume made from the free soil and free water.

Robots can till, plant, weed, harvest and transport Our food - so even Human energy is not needed and becomes not scarce. (How each of Us chooses to spend Our energy in that solution will have bearing on the social currency One carries.)

So... Wall Street will fall if We flood Our world with plenum energy. (Most popularly called "Dark" Energy...)

I hope You don't really believe that...

If something is noteworthy and plays well in Their hand, You'll hear all about it. If something was noteworthy but weakens Their hand... You'l be lucky to hear a peep.

The MSM is covering this story. There are links to dozens of articles from every MSM source you could want. This video was even aired last night on CNN: News Room

So how can you continue to say there is a media blackout? This thing is in newspapers, live TV, hundreds of web articles, what more do you want? It's not going to be on TV 24/7, but it's obviously not a media blackout and declaring it as such just completely false and counter-productive.

If this is what you think a media blackout looks like, it's no wonder you all think Ron Paul is also on a 'media blackout'.

well what can a person say here other than the fact that

a few people protesting is more important than people dying in an air show.

they got their press coverage which has been linked already but nope

so how much coverage is acceptable? 24 hours 7 days a week for people who dont have a clue about how things work in this country.

people yell all day long about wall street and coroporations they make money the real villians here

are those people who print it and devalue it and control the entire financial industry of this country.

misguided for sure.

Seriously guys, the protest is being covered by pretty much every mainstream source out there. I know it can be fun to make a conspiracy out of everything, but sometimes there just isn't one.

The MSM should do a cover story on how pathetic this supposed protest really is, name all the Soros foundations behind its inception just to show that communism doesn't go over well in the US.

Who are these losers who can camp out for a week or a month, do they have someone cashing their welfare checks for them while they are doing this? Are they professionally paid protesters? These are the important questions americans want to know.

They are all stupid for not wearing sunglasses at least. That's all I have to say about it. If you want to protest in this high tech world, do it without giving your biometrics away. Sunglasses, hoods or distorting clothing and peace.

Why do you think the "Anarchists" that always crash the party are wearing those clothes? Because they want to get ahead of the curve and ban that type of clothing because it's harder to identify you.

free energy is all around us, we just dont know how to use it yet
but there are plenty of other ways..if someone with a bit of money could develop a cheap wholesale solar panel for sale or something like that..
i wish i was rich theres so many things id do like that
