DON SURBER ON THE OCCUPY MOVEMENT: They Should Occupy Prison: “This is the face of liberalism, America. It is lawless, selfish, disrespectful and above all mean. The Democratic Party’s embrace, promotion and even logistical support of the Occupy Wall Street movement likely will backfire. . . . The media has by and large been very supportive of the various Occupy stunts organized by unions and radical groups. The allegations of rape, pimping underage girls and underage drinking are largely ignored by a national press that repeatedly lied about the peaceful, law-abiding Tea Party movement. With Occupy, police have had to arrest more than 1,000 Occupiers — even as police ignore permit violations, camping violations and pot-smoking. I cannot recall police arresting a single Tea Party member, even though there were 100 times as many of them.”

UPDATE: Ric Locke emails:

Anybody who’s been to a Tea Party or #Occupy rally knows the media is a pack of bald-faced liars.

There are quite a few who heartily approve, mind you, but not even the most rabid Narrative-maintainer goes to them for information any more, and isn’t that the point of “news”?

Well, it used to be.
