Wall Street Protests That the Mainstream Isn’t Reporting
It isn’t as sexy as Libya. It isn’t in a banana republic, so to speak. If you don’t live in New York City, you might not have noticed a prolonged Wall Street protest. From the photos, you can tell that matters aren’t under perfect control by the New York City Blue. The mainstream media has been very slow to respond, if they have taken notice at all. That isn’t a surprise since guess who owns big media? The Wall Street protesters have ideas and are intent on highlighting the mechanisms at work within the perpetual boom and bust cycle that is the American economy. Democracy? Hardly. The U.S. is a Republic, for what its worth. Photos by Jeff Prager.
