Robert Scheer on Wall Street Protests

By Robert Scheer

September 29, 2011

Pat Thurston filled in for Ronn Owens on the Ronn Owens Show and talked about how the Wall Street protests in NYC are not getting much attention from the media with Robert Sheer from Truth Dig.  Should this crisis be blamed on both parties?  Why aren’t more people pissed off?  We took your calls about this mis-carriage of justice in New York.

Background

Long before Occupy Wall Street took form, and long before the corporate media caught on, two of our top columnists at Truthdig foresaw the economic calamity that still grips our country. Chris Hedges devoted his time and energy warning Americans about the disastrous symbiosis between big business and our government, both in his columns and in the streets. Meanwhile, Truthdig Editor in Chief Robert Scheer covered the buildup to the meltdown for over a decade, naming names and taking no prisoners in his latest book, in his own columns and in his zinger of an acceptance speech at the 2010 Webby Awards -- held, as it happened, in the heart of Wall Street.
