Makes me want to bust out my Sharpies and posterboard…

Great video on the Occupy Wall Street movement from DC Douglas:

Contrast this with Koch-funded Tea Party movement, which features angry old farts deploying lawn chairs in the town square to listen to a bunch of corporate crooks in Colonial dress railing against historically low tax rates. And yet if you rely on the media for information, the Tea Party is the grassiest-rooted, most important, significant political development in the history of the planet, and the Occupy Wall Street movement is just a bunch of smelly, unemployed hippies.

Is the media FAIL due to laziness? Fear of being labeled a (heaven forbid!) “liberal”? Marching orders from the giant media conglomerates that own the system? I’m not sure.

Conservatives carp ceaselessly about the Meedia,  It’s simple.
They are Free Marketers who go where the money flows.  If they can increase their ad revenue, they cover it.  They represent the status quo,  ergo; they wish to downplay the riff on WS, until they can short-sell it and walk away with cheap, quick cash.  Hey!  Wait a minute. They ARE Wall Street.

D. All of the above.

Yes. Latest edition of short answers…
