All the News Fit for Bankers?

(via Reddit)

Across the country—in New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, and San Francisco, and over 100 other locations—marches, organizing meetings and tent cities have begun. Thousands are marching. Hundreds have been arrested.

Above, see an interesting example of our friends at The New York Times (NYT) spinning their coverage. Interestingly, I’ve just had an exchange on the subject of that paper’s self-proclaimed “impartiality,” which it used as an excuse to formally reprimand Chris Hedges, whose blistering op-ed adorns the front page of the Occupied Wall Street journal.

Regular readers know that I’ve previously questioned the NYT’s bias, particularly on education issues.
