Mainstream media slow off the mark

Media in New York did a poor job of communicating Occupy Wall Street's message

Thank you for running your story: Occupy Victoria takes direct aim at money, banking (News, Oct. 14).

I realize there are many aspects to the problem, more complicated than the majority of us understand, and I have been slowly grasping what this is all about. I felt your story had a good summary of the situation.

It was good to see that our Occupy Victoria had an organizer.

I think the protesters in New York need for a spokesperson to get a clear message out there telling the public exactly what they stand for.

The protest in New York has actually been going on for a month already, but mainstream media in New York apparently did not pick up the story back then.

This is the reason my husband has taken to watching news on the Internet instead of mainstream media.
