Big Media Ignores Protests

Tsingi (870990) writes "In case you haven't heard, there is an ongoing protest taking place on Wall Street. There is no shame in being ignorant of the event; the "mainstream" news media has gone out of its way to ignore what is happening down there, Yahoo's email service was recently busted for blocking messages having to do with the protest, and Twitter — that bastion of protest messaging for the people who organized the Arab Spring movements — has reportedly been quashing Wall Street protest-oriented tweets out of hand."

Ignored? (1)

What a non-story. How can you say it has been ignored? This handful of people has gotten way more attention than is warranted - they don't even have a coherent message. Even the Huffington Post was making fun of them.
