A CNN Business reporter, Alison Kosik, summarizes what she thinks the purpose of Occupy Wall Street is.
Here is her Twitter post.
UPDATE: Kosik deleted her tweet. That’s the kind of confidence she had in her observation, I guess. The New York City police are fairly visible at Occupy Wall Street. They are also strict about smoking weed in public. So I wonder if Kosik’s observation has any factual basis at all.
MORE: Alison and another CNN-er yuck it up about those whining protestors at Occupy Wall Street. This one hasn’t been deleted yet.
REGRETS: Alison now says, through a CNN spokesman, that she regrets the derisive tweeting.
BONUS: And to further unfold the attitude at CNN, do watch this clip of Erin Burnett reporting on Occupy Wall Street. (“What are they protesting? No one seems to know.”)
COMMENT: At Balloon Juice, a political blog, they say the CNN staffers on stage here “are acting like the Heathers of the mainstream media.” Kinda puts it well.
