You ever think about why? 

I live in Manhattan so I went to check them out.  It's a small group of unfocused people with no idea what they're talking about and no clear agenda other than to let people know they're there, and they're failing miserably at that.  This isn't a coverup by the media, this is a nonevent. Roughly the same magnitude as the L train getting stuck in the tunnel for 10 minutes, but stinkier.

I'm not here to defend Wall Street or corporate excess, but there's nothing about this event that says there's a coverup.   Even their website, where they rant on and on about police brutality, shows a couple loud women getting pepper sprayed when the police finally got tired of telling them to chill out for 5 seconds. Again, not a coverup, it's just basically what any new yorker would expect to happen when you shout at NYPD for a couple days straight.

The media handled this 100% correctly.

I believe that is what the British said about the early American patriots.
