I love that the Sydney Morning Herald story accompanying this photo of environmentalists atop and on the side of one of the sails of the famed Sydney Opera House says that the people who unfurled that banner, protesting deforestation, “allegedly climbed the structure.”
Sometimes the dictates of proper journalism require redundancy.   :-)

“The Occupy Wall Street movement has basically been a four-week, downtown Manhattan live-in which has spread to cities all around the country, causing the media to move its coverage dial from ‘Blackout’ to ‘Circus.’  (Beat.)  Those were really the only two settings it has.”

New York Observer: Exclusive “Occupy Wall Street” Unaired Fox Footage (by mavgirl69)

Who is this man?! He’s fabulous.

Boom. Your “leaderless movement” has a leader, if they want it. This guy (his name is Jesse LaGreca, for news’ sake) is extremely eloquent and really said everything that needed to be said here. He didn’t hold back. He just laid it out, plain and clear. Great clip. So why didn’t this (reportedly) air? The WaPo’s Eric Wemple blames the interviewer, who let himself get overwhelmed by someone who was way smarter than the circular, overly-laden questions suggested.

This is fucking awesome.  But I don’t think it’s actual Fox News footage.  It looks like another camera, shot off to the side of the Fox camera.  I doubt Fox News would ever let raw tape like this surface anywhere.

But, like I said — fucking awesome.  Jesse LaGreca, by virtue of standing up to this alleged journalist, is one of the strongest voices yet of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
