And yet, the Main Stream Media is trying its damnedest to explain away the wave of violence that has come out of the Occupy Wall Street protests. Case in point, ABC's exceedingly slanted articled entitled Rioters Hijack Rome Protests, Police Fire Tear Gas.
Thus, their first paragraph reads like so:
Italian riot police fired tear gas and water cannons Saturday in Rome as violent protesters hijacked a peaceful demonstration against corporate greed, smashing bank windows, torching cars and hurling bottles.Let me break this down for you, even though I'm quite sure anyone can see right through this drivel. ABC goes out of its way to say that "peaceful protesters" were rightfully demonstrating against corporations. It emphasizes, however, that the riots were "hijacked" by violence.
|According to ABC, this did not happen|
|Also did not happen, according to ABC|
|Also didn't happen|
But I am not surprised. This is the Main Stream Media, after all.
