Naomi Klein: The Mainstream Media Has Dropped the Ball on Occupy Wall Street

As the Occupy Wall Street movement grows—10,000 to 15,000 people participated in the Foley Square march yesterday in Lower Manhattan—the mainstream media can no longer turn away from it. So some of them have decided to mock the movement and dismiss its legitimacy.

The Nation's Naomi Klein appeared on Democracy Now! this morning to condemn this “sick” and “corrupt” move that “welcomes” people who participate in politics. In addition, she exposes the lies of “scarcity” created by those in power to cover up the unequal distribution of wealth in a capitalist society.
