    country. Did you see any news networks out there. And when some finally did arrive, did you notice they tried to down play or misrepresent why Occupy was protesting? Well it's the same with not reporting what Democrats have to say.

      And it's not. The media are a huge problem. I know this. That said, your effort to define my understanding and the conversation in the context of the media only doesn't help. The Democrats are doing a terrible job of framing this debate, just like they almost always do. Making excuses for them isn't helping.

      I'm at the protests, so yes, I notice how they're being misrepresented. So let me ask you, do you see any Democrats trying to counteract that framing? Do you know of any efforts on behalf of the Democratic establishment to help build media infrastructure that could counteract the media narratives?

      Since when are they not invited on news programs? And if they're not, why aren't they pushing to be on them? You think they don't have aides that can do this? Campaign management apparatus that can make it happen? You don't think a Senator can get on CNN or ABC or CBS if they want to?

      Let's get real.

      Slap happy is a platform.
