6. Thank you for this, UJ.. During all the corporatemediawhore propaganda before

the net and Twitter became so prevalent as a way to get real news out.. I keep lobbying for Occupy to Occupy the Media and before that for the masses to protest the media like we did bush's war on Iraq. My fervent wish was for the m$m to go the way of the dinosaurs..

David Gregory's MTP did that but NBC's bright idea is to bring in Chuckie Todd..

But, we got this on Monday!

#ItsBiggerThanYou: Atlanta protesters challenge CNNís Michael Brown reporting

Hundreds of protesters gathered outside the CNN center in Atlanta on Monday to march in memory of unarmed Missouri teenager Michael Brown who was gunned down by a police officer, many in protest of CNNís controversial coverage of the incident.

Demonstrators who had been urged to attend dressed in their ďSundayís bestĒ marched under the slogan: ďHow good must we look to be considered innocent?Ē and used the #ItsBiggerThanYou hashtag.

The protest was staged in response to CNNís Ferguson protests coverage, which had a strong emphasis on past actions by Brown which may have incriminated him. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, as many as 1,000 protesters marched.

More to the story..

"Participants and observers also took to Twitter to denounce CNNís lack of coverage of a protest directly outside its offices."
