Phantom Wall Street Demonstrators MACED By Cops — THE STING IS REAL

Most Americans, not only those who get their news exclusively from Fox, have no idea that an organized grassroots protest by the group Occupy Wall Street involving thousands of demonstrators peacefully protesting Wall Street greed and corruption has been ongoing in the Wall Street area since September 17. How can the public know, when there has been a virtual news blackout imposed on coverage of this demonstration, even if it dwarfs a typical Tea Party demonstration attracting heavy media coverage? Why the news blackout? It's a rhetorical question. Mainstream media is corporate-owned and Wall Street is the transnational corporations' banker. It's really that simple.

But the mainstream media bias regarding which demonstrations to cover — Tea Party, yes; the Left, no — is so blatant that we are reduced to reading NYU Campus media or the British press to find out what the hell is going on in our own backyard. The Guardian actually covered the substance of the demonstration on Wall Street, not simply the visuals. On cable, Keith Olbermann has been flying solo. Things suddenly changed for the media when three young women were pepper sprayed by New York's finest. Here's only PART of Keith's segment. For some inexplicable reason, the most compelling and disturbing part, which shows and discusses the young women being pepper sprayed by the police, is not shown:

Here's the video from USlaw.com which shows the assault in detail. Does this qualify as police brutality?
