OWS and the UC Davis Incident


I saw some official telling reporters that the police pepper-sprayed the protesters because they were stuck in the circle and couldn't get out. What a bunch of BS. You see the police walking back and forth through the lines without any problem whatsoever. Why is the public being lied to?

Disinformation is rampant on OWS reporting. One of many examples: www.salon.com/2011/11/18/the_foxnyt_nexus_on_ows/

There is evidence that many people don't watch the news critically.

That's an article that everyone should read.

Glenn Greenwald talks about elite ownership of the media in this clip: http://fora.tv/2011/11/02/Glenn_Greenwald_in_Conversation_with_David_Talbot#Greenwald_OWS_Media_Coverage_Biased_by_Elite_Media. I only wish that FORA wouldn't charge people to watch the entire piece.

I worry about the escalation of violence I see on the part of the government and authority figures. If they keep that up, we'll no longer be under any illusions that we have civil rights. Then what do you suppose "the people" will do? I foresee a much bigger uprising of the populace if the government continues down this path. Violence begets violence. If the powers that be don't listen, the people will get louder.
