New York Times wakes up to protests next door


Police Arrest More Than 700 Protesters on Brooklyn Bridge – NYTimes.com.

However this should be front page and not in an obscure corner of the newspaper. Instead the media by an large focuses on troubles in other countries where similar demonstratiors are called “pro-democracy movements.”

Our media has been reduced to puppets of the establishment. Not a single columnist of the main stream media has been courageous enough to present the protests as what they are: An act of desperation by a generation betrayed by the two dominant political parties.
