@MCMXCIII- The reason it's not getting coverage is because every mainstream media corporation is financially tied to Wall Street. The protesters are not necessarily radical socialists at all. Most of them simply want a representative Democracy where their interests are given fair representation. Instead we have a sham representative democracy where the government ignores the interests of the people in favor of supporting the interests of the wealthiest 1%, and then pretends that they`re helping everyone by supporting the "job creators."

I would also want to point out that the reason why no mainstream media has covered this protest so far is not because they make the left stupid -- rather, it is because they (the protesters) are so close to radical socialists that even the slightest coverage of them may infuse further chaos into this country. Due to careful brainwashing, the majority of Americans do not receive the word "socialism" and "communism" too well, but this protest has shown that it is about to change. No corporate-run media outlet would want to admit that growing radical part of the country; no, socialists are few, weak and abominable (which is totally false).

Also, I'm disappointed with how Americans received the protest in the comments. This protest is not going to change anything, and there may be some morons in the crowd, sure; but you are all so busy comparing them to the Tea Party that you forget to consider the message they are trying to convey: that you are controlled by the media, that this country is run by an elite few and that democracy is a joke. They may be stupid, but at least they realized the fundamental problems with the "American democracy", and they dare to say it out loud. I may not associate myself with them, but I at least admire their attempt.
