I was watching the local news and this is pretty much what I saw happening in the typically superficial fashion that local news station cover stories. I blame the reporters and news stations for not asking the right questions and also the protestors for not having the right answers ready for when they get their moment in the spotlight.

Of course, if the news station is determined to not tell the story of the protestors then that’s a whole other problem. It just kills me that the “story” is usually just about them trying to get attention and not the why which usually gets less coverage.
