Occupy Wall Street Arrests Highlight Need for New Media

When faced with disinterested, apathetic mainstream media and lazy or dishonest reporting, it’s become the responsibility of the people to cover what’s really happening.

We watched from above as people began climbing the cords and metal of the bridge to escape the cops. People on the pedestrian bridge were trying to pull people up out of the roadway.
