if you are in the habit of getting your news from mainstream TV, radio, newspapers, PLEASE check out what is going on on the NET with regard to the Wall Street Occupation. Here is a link to an article in the OCCUPIED WALL STREET JOURNAL which talks about how the corporate media is slandering the movement. Plenty of examples are given.
If your understanding of the world comes only from corporate media, you will never really know what is going on. Check out the OCCUPIED WALL STREET JOURNAL to hear from the activists themselves.
