That damned Coverage

What's Mallard raving about today?

Occupy Wall Street, Teabaggers

Mallard Fillmore: perpetual victim.

Ah, yes, of course--the Great Liburul Medea Jewspiracy works to demonize the poor, hard-workin', well-behaved, has-legitimate-concerns folk of the Teabagger Tidal Wave o' Somehow-Thwarted Triumph, while elevating the dirty smelly criminal hippie drug-and-sex orgy that is Occupy Wall Street to Godlike status.

Except, no.

It's official: the Kochlickers hate OWS even more than black people.

Wow, that smirking hippie looks like he jumped right out of a Ward Sutton "Kelly" editorial cartoon from The Onion.

Wow, project much Bruce? OWS only started getting coverage weeks after it began when it became clear that it wasn't going away.

Now let's compare that to the coverage the Teabaggers got. From day one Fox News was busy pumping up the minor Teabagger events even altering video of the events, North Korea style, to make them look bigger than they actually were. I know it's hard to believe, but it appears Bruce Tinsley is lying.

It was hunky dory for Fox News to more or less manufacture and nurture the TP, but if events finally force the majors to acknowledge (in a belittling way) those thousands of people on the street, then it's time to cry, fowl.

(Get it? They made the Baby Mallard cry!)

Let's give tinsley props for not including FOX as one of the "PR firms". A little honesty, there.

Of course, he also didn't mention CNN or MSNBC, so it's possible that he's forgotten about cable news entirely.

Or he's just that stupid.

Verification: sleratar: An ancient beast, who rained destruction on the masses with huge outpourings of ill-digested opinions masquerading as facts. Also known as a "Fillmore".

Another day, another 5 minutes of work, another fat paycheck from a right wing billionaire. And another day to pretend that Bruce himself isn't a wholly-owned media subsidy.

"Great coverage?" When even the "liberal media" like the great NYT portrays the OWS participants as clueless hippies who have no idea "what their demands are?" The fact that both Republican and Democratic presidents and congresspeople care only about what Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley want is never acknowledged. The media speculates only about how either party can manipulate the movement into votes. The banksters will utterly dominate either Obama's or Romney's administration, have no fear.

@Tog - thanks for the link tp - she makes a very good point. The Kochsuckers are blaming New York crime on OWS, which is mostly white, instead of the usual-suspect-dark-skinned-people. So there is progress after all!

And ... Just now at OccupyWallStreet, a cop wanted to negotiate with a protestor, so they put him on the "People's Mike". That is, the protestors themselves amplified and spread the cop's message!

The Founders of our nation would be proud.

Tog said...

Off-topic, but wow: Pat Buchanan and the head of Teabagger Nation get together for a hearty round of Batshit's favorite game, "We're Not Racist...YOU Are!!!1"

Oh, I can't wait to see Batshit's response!

TPers vs #OWS.

Every year or so, Tinsley shows that he is a brave iconoclast by actually saying something critical of someone you would normally expect him to lick up to. I believe we're about due for another of these, and I will boldly predict that he will say that the GOP, Fox News, or the Koch Brothers are just too darn nice for their own good, and let the chips fall where they may.
