Look like the mainstream media can’t ignore the protests anymore. After almost 3-weeks of protest in Wall Street, the mainstream media finally decided to write a few lines about some “small” protest in Wall Street.
All the mainstream media for some odd reason decided to shy from one of the most important news. A sit-in protest right in front of Wall Street which obviously is responsible for the financial mayhem that we are facing. While they covered all the tit-bits of happenings in the financial world creating more panic, they simply ignored a huge protest right in front of where all this was happen. Unbiased news ? Yea, at least for them.
Protesters are from all walks of life. Initially started by students they have now been joined by teachers, managers, labors etc.
