What are those OWS people so angry about?
One of the most revealing aspects of the rapidly growing OccupyWallStreet protest movement has been the bewilderment and befuddlement expressed by so many media stars as to what the “message” is of these protests and what these protesters are so angry about. Perhaps this juxtaposition can clarify things, from The New York Times today:
Citigroup Earnings Rise 74% to $3.8 Billion
And from McClatchy today:
Millions of homes lurk on bank inventories, casting doubts of rebound
No love for The State, McClatchy among sports hacks
FreddiePatek: McClatchy house … University of South Carolina shill for a publisher … shell of its former self.
michael_bradley: As such, and given how I hear things go down at the State, expect to be low-balled on the salary.
FreddiePatek: Indeed. Frankly, I’m surprised they’re filling the vacancy. I expected them to shift deck chairs as the boat continued to sink.
1HPGrad: Spent one year there in the mid-1990s and had a lot of fun. Can’t speak to the current product or staff, but the town is cool, the fans are beyond nuts, and Williams-Brice is a 10-minute walk from the office. Imagine if you are a young editor who likes the south, you could do much worse.
lone star scribe: Given McClatchy’s recent layoffs and buyouts in the region, you will be the first out the door. Probably in 12 months or less.
