Pathetic Coverage of Occupy Denver by MSM...

Close to 3,000 people showed up on Saturday for the Occupy Denver
rally and march through downtown Denver. 24 people were arrested a
few hours after the rally. A couple people got pepper sprayed. And that
is what the media focused on. Not the thousands of people
who showed up for the march earlier. 9News had been there the
day and night before when the protestors had their camp
dismantled by the police. Matter of fact they had a live feed. But only
one tiny clip of the protests yesterday.
I checked other local television news stations websites and their coverage
was not impressive either. The local Faux News channnel had an item about
a protestor being arrested for groping a photographer. In the meantime they
miss the whole point of why the protestors are there.

Ah well, no matter. Next week the protests will be bigger. And the week after,
bigger yet. This is not going away. Pretty soon it will be so big they simply will
not be able to get away with lying and misrepresenting. More and more people
are beginning to realize that what they are seeing with their own eyes does not
match up with what MSM is telling them.

I think it's time to Occupy Mainstream Media. I am sick of their lies and
propaganda. They're not objective and they don't report the news. They are
simply a tool for the corporations and millions of blind sheeple are entranced
by their bullsh*t every day. It is one HUGE WRONG that needs to be righted.

Time to start using our heads and do protests in front of local and national news stations? I love the way you think. Haven't heard of that idea yet, though it makes sense and holds water.

I say we all go behind that window for GMA with our "I hate media, they lie" picket signs and see how they "forget" to report it. They could cancel their own show I guess, but then we win anyway!

Really I guess that is already happening to a large extent in NYC... but, if I didn't have so many things to do perhaps I would join in.!

If anyone is still watching MSM and thinking it's objective, they're really stupid. I remember watching MSM with my grandmother while I sat with her through the hurricane, and she actually let it get to her. I decided that I would predict exactly what they were going to do, and how things would be steered as stories broke. She's no longer a believer of MSM's crap.
