Forum Post: WHERE IS THE MEDIA?!?!

I have watched 3 solid hours of CNN and they have not even mentioned that this is going on. No one I know is aware of it until I tell them. I suggest organizing a protest in Atlanta at the CNN headquarters to FORCE them to give this the attention it deserves. I, for one, am so proud of everyone participating and plan to attend the October2011 protest in Washington next month. It's time to take our country back from these greedy a$$holes!

Ya know, Thomson Reuters HQ is @ Fulton & Bdwy across from St. Paul's. If they won't come to you.....

Just before Gulf War one there was a big arranged wedding between World Corporate Media and the Military Industrial Complex. Dick Cheney was the Best Man and Daddy Bush was the father of the Bride. The happy couple have lived in luxury since that day.

I have been checking out videos of the protest on YouTube and there are hardly any views. Unbelievable.

Also the police seem to be overly aggressive; maybe because no one is watching.

at least one of the videos had over 450 comments and 305 views... which means there's a possibility they are censoring the protest videos.

Viewcounts stop at about 300ish until the system can verify that the mass-viewing is legitimate, separate views, as opposed to an automated refresher (not sure how it works but that's what it does). It's not a censorship thing, just a YouTube thing.

ah a follow up, here's a link on youtube discussing it back in 2009. http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/youtube/thread?tid=17f0843c4bab76e8

There is a conspiracy of silence in regards to this movement. I've been looking for stories on tv all day today. The most I've seen is a quick blurb or a mention on the little ticker along the bottom.

I finally found a mention on Al Jazeera around 10:30.

God bless the internet.

Yesterday, I had to do a search on CNN to find it, but it is there.
