Bozell: Liberal Media Shamelessly Coddling 'Occupy Wall Street'; Public Isn't Buying It
Editor's Note: A new USA Today/Gallup poll that finds Americans blame Washington for the country's economic woes much more than Wall Street and financial institutions. NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell is not surprised and issued the following statement.
The American people see right through the liberal media’s favorable spin on Occupy Wall Street. While they shamelessly coddle these clueless protesters, the public isn’t buying it. Americans overwhelmingly blame Washington for the nation’s economic mess and failure to address it.
The radical protesters can’t rally around a central message, purpose or goal because they don’t have one. And their leaders aren’t the grassroots grandmas and average Americans the media characterize them as.
They are paid activists, ironically fueled by left-wing billionaire George Soros who made his money as a successful capitalist.
