The Occupy Wall Street movement has some issues with Fox News.After an epic New York Post cover Sunday, the New York Observer got its hands on a video of part of an interview between a Fox News reporter and Occupy Wall Street protester Jesse LaGraca that never made it to air.
Probably has something to do with LaGraca’s labelling of the network in the interview.
“It’s fun to talk to the propaganda machine and the media, especially conservative media networks such as yourself, because we find that we can’t get conversations for the Department of Justice’s ongoing investigation of News Corporation, for which you are an employee…”
Or for calling out Glenn Beck:
“Take for instance when Glenn Beck was doing his protest and he called the President a person who hates white people and white culture. That was a low moment in Americans’ history and you guys kinda had a big part in it.”
Said the Fox News reporter: “”You wouldn’t be able to get your message out without us.”
Either way, you will probably not be shocked to hear that the video, shot Wednesday for Greta van Susteren‘s show, never made it to air on the network.
LaGraca closed the interview with some logical-sounding advice:
“Let’s just look at it like this — if we want the President to do more, let’s talk to him on a level that actually reaches people. Instead of asking for his birth certificate and wasting time with total nonsense.”
The un-aired video of the exchange was sent to the Observer by a member of the Occupy Wall Street media team.
