Occupiers have indicated that many reporters from the main stream media, Fox News and the Wall Street Journal in particular, are showing up with the story already written. In other words, instead of letting the facts dictate the story, the desired narrative is dictating what is being reported.
One narrative certain factions of the mainstream media are pushing hard is the Tea Party versus Occupy Wall Street. The Tea Party is protesting big government whereas OWS is protesting big money. This is a deceptive paradigm perpetuated by BIG MEDIA which elegantly serves the 1% by pitting ordinary Americans against one another. Reporting the fact that the occupiers oppose big money’s influence on our political system, or the incestuous relationship between big money and big government, does not serve the expedient narrative, so it is left out of the story. http://outlierideas.com
