I'll bet you didn't see this on the news!

Lots of people showed their opposition to the bailout by protesting on Wall Street.



I wonder why Katie and Brian and Charles didn't tell us about this?

So is the government controlling the news that is covered?

BTW, I could not understand what they were chanting. Can you post that?

I think they were saying "The bailout is b***s***. You broke it, you buy it."

I wonder if they'll bring out the 1st Combat Brigade Team the next time the protesters come out?

Since reading Noam Chomsky I've never watched the news again with the same trusting eyes.

I would particularly recommend Manufacturing Consent, Media Control, and Hegemony or Survival, all three of which are eye-opening antidotes to sheepness.

I have learned from reading various authors that the people who control the government and the people who control the mass media all come from the same stock. Their similar goals and interests (staying at the top of the socioeconomic scale, for one) cause them to work together to keep us sheeple as uninformed as possible.
