Don't let anyone see them talking

Don't let anyone see them talking

I wrote a post the other day about Bill O'Reilly's smarmy little "interviews" with the protesters at OccupyWallStreet. As I wrote at the time, it's not entirely unfair for the rightwingers to make fun of protesters --- we do the same thing on our side. The difference is that we do tend to let them speak for themselves at length, while the Fox interviews are clipped to such an extent you can't possibly know what these people are really saying.

Here's an example they're cutting --- and when you see it, you'll understand why they do it:

It looks to me as if the silly hippies have something to say after all. And they're quite adept at saying it.

That OWS protester's name is Jesse LaGreca and apparently he's quite willing to speak to anyone who asks. Perhaps the mainstream media could look him up next time they go on one of their sociological forays into the wilds of Liberty Park.
