The Occupy Wall Street Protester You’ll Never See On Fox News [Video]

The Occupy Wall Street Protester You’ll Never See On Fox News [Video]

 

Mainstream media loves a crisis. A diverse set of Americans, coming together to fight for their rights and treating each other with kindness does not a top news story make.

So when the major news networks venture into the Occupy Wall Street crowd, they’re looking for someone who will make an outlandish statement or flaunt their mohawk to make the families at home gasp and clutch their hearts.

What they’re not looking for is someone clean, intelligent and articulate that can stay on point despite painfully leading questions.

That’s why you’re unlikely to ever see this clip aired on Fox News. Does the protester provide a succinct sound-byte that explains why hundreds of thousands of people across the nation have taken to the streets? No, he doesn’t. Instead, he calls out the mainstream media for discounting the movement because it can’t be summed up in a sound-byte.

AMERICAN MEDIAs misssion to misrepresent, lie ,backbite, be deceitfull, provide deception, defame at all costs, detract from the TRUTH and FACTS, be dishonest, provide disinformation, distort every news element, evade the 99% of US citizens whom are hurting fiscally, fabricate to the 99% that EVERYTHING iS ALL RIGHT as long as the 1% get their tax subsidies, loop holes, capital gains, 100m dollar annual bonuses, tax payer BAIL OUTS.

ENOUGH SAID .... WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO NEXT THE SIT INS ARE GREAT BUT WE MUST CREATE AN ACTION PLAN IN WHICH ALL OF US CAN AGREE AND BECOME A POLICAL CAUSE. I know 98% of you say this is what created the problems politicians, money and government.... unfortunately if you had been taught civics, american government/ policy and ethics in HS ... you would know that we must become a political engine to "MOVE" the monsters whom have a choke hold on us NOW>



P.S. I am also tired of the liberal media call eggheads to "describe what is going on with the 99%" when will liberals and conservatives, teabaggers and libertarians JUST ASK US?

Solyndra is a canard and you know it. It is a straw man. It's a bad business deal, nothing more. The Administration wanted an AMERICAN solar company to have the ability to compete against the coming onslaught of CHINESE companies that are mass producing solar panels for cheaper. This is a market that America needs to dominate and the White House was trying to foster that. The plan didn't work and that's unfortunate for the American people because now we will have to get our solar power components from the Chinese. The idea was out there for damn near 10 years, but Fox won't tell you that. If John McCain was president the deal would've happened still; this was on George Bush's desk. Fox can try and spin this as some kickback scheme all they want but it will be to no avail. As you see it's already losing steam in the media even on Fox.

Newscorp. employees spied on people and hacked their phones for sensational and political gain. That is reprehensible. What's even more reprehensible is that it was done with the blessings of those on top. They have the desire to spy and hack your phone Robert B., YOURS. This is what you Fox News flunkies don't seem to understand, YOU ARE ONE OF THEIR VICTIMS TOO.

Robert B. you are most typical of the Right-wing fringe. You believe the pablum that Fox News feeds you. And yes, I have unfortunately had the displeasure of watching Fox. I watch in order to be regularly informed about what the other side is thinking or in this case not thinking.

Griff Jenkins has historically been a complete tool for the network. His interviews are designed to promote the Fox Agenda in a "happy go lucky folks is folks" sort of way. Here his mission was to get a hippie wackjob to act out for the camera. What he got was a casual young man totally informed and articulate with no need to act out for the cameras.

So how do you figure that the interviewee is a "clown"? What did he do or say that said he was a "clown"? Please point out what that was. Because in reality he came off as the exact opposite and didn't let Jenkins inject his usual BS.

Awesome video! Awesome guy! This is how the protesters need to be at all times. Do not give the Righty smear machine any ammunition.

Question does anyone know if this did air at all?

10:08PM PDT on Oct 10, 2011

Robert B.,

The 99% aren't looking for bailouts. They are looking for jobs. Where will we get our physicians from? India. You may be working hard but, so long as you support those that out-source and off-shore U.S. jobs, someone younger and cheaper will eventually compete with you and take your job away.

Medicare does not do well because it is providing health care to those who really need it, the old and unhealthy. Before Obamacare forced the insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions they were only covering the young and the healthy, those that, for the most part, do not need health care. Despite that private insurance goes up in double digit inflation every year in order to keep pace with CEO salaries. Wrap the flag around it all you want. You don't fool anyone.

We already have a communist system. It is called capitalist partnership with communist China. It is the new labor system for the United States falling under the name of "global economy."

Robert O. Maybe you should copy and paste your comment again on another story, nobody is listening to you .......still.

The protestors want to tear down the free enterprise system and replace it with their vision of utopia based on an agrarian and/or communist and/or who knows what kind of system???

If they were focused on the crooks on Wall Street (investment banks) and their enablers in past/current federal governments, they would have support from the majority of people.

Then there would be some positive changes.

News stations should show all the news and not what flatters one particular party or candidate. I watch Fox News, but it is lacking in fairness at times.
