    Please remember to Witness Revolution. It means so much to them that we pay attention.

    •  It is I agree. It is one aspect though I think you (6+ / 0-)

      would agree that the coverage and visuals - although clearly hyped and amped in joyful looping on  the MSM have been stilted to their own narrative and framing - has not been beneficial to the movement. While the shooting of Scott here in Oakland was in some sense, and perversely so, actually likely engendered positive reactions it is the followon visuals of shattered windows and burning dumpster after the General Strike that is the latest image that people remember. People have a short attention span as pointed out above, it is therefore critical to be consistent in how the "outside world" perceives the Occupy encampments, made doubly difficult by the editorializing inherent in the MSM's alleged "impartial" coverage of these stories inherent in their corporate owners' demands to frame it in a negative light. Would you not agree that violence perpetrated in proximity to Occupy actions makes that more difficult to overcome?

        In what way? I'm interested in learning how you feel I have been "kettled" by the pot so if I have some logical fallacy in my comments I can address them in a more logical way.
        Thank you.
