You post a link to an article, by a Fox News affiliate I might add, with the intention of portraying the OWS people as foolish for not allowing an
agent of the government they believe to be corrupt to speak.
Except, if you read up on it at all, from a more neutral source that doesn't liken the occupy Atlanta group to a "Phish Concert,' you'd see that
they actually just voted to proceed with their agenda, which Lewis was interrupting, and that he could speak after they finished their already agreed
upon agenda. They couldn't give him an exact time, so he declined.
Furthermore, people at the protest who felt Lewis should be recognized for his accomplishments (which are many indeed, I would agree) left in disgust.
By contrast, here's what happened to Lewis last year at a Tea Party protest:
I challenge you to find a Fox affiliate that shows similar outrage for Lewis' treatment in 2010. When you can't, you'll probably have to accept
that the protesters yelling "Fox News Lies" probably acted in their own correct self interests.
Disproportionate response in a public medium is a lie. Make no mistake.
