Those were news articles posted within hours of the story breaking. 

Let's check now, as the big story is about Cleveland not renewing the Occupy Movement's encampment permits because of the recent events -- this is the media reporting on the apparent connection of some of the individuals in the bomb plot with the Occupy Movement. 






It seems to me that if one was attempting a grand-scale coverup of the suspects' connections to the Occupy Movement, one would not run articles about how the Occupy Cleveland outfit is having their permits non-renewed because of the actions of the suspects. I also certainly would not expect mug shots of those suspects run in an article about Occupy Cleveland. 

That's on the micro scale, though. Let's look more macro. 

Using the NewsBank -- America's Newspapers database, using the search terms "Cleveland bomb plot" AND "Occupy," in the timeframe of May 1 to May 3, we get the following results:

Seventy-five printed news articles containing both phrases spanning three days. 

Those 75 news articles were in centralized newspapers representing 20 states, with 21 of those articles considered "National coverage." 

If this is some kind of cover-up, it's certainly not a very good one.

The major media is protecting the occupy movement by ignoring the fact that these guys were INTERVIEWED FOR BEING LEADERS OF THE OCCUPY CLEVELAND MOVEMENT.... The FBI informant MET THEM at the Occupy Cleveland events last year.

And yet, only ONE story whale posted even mentions the occupy movement, and discounts their involvement. Clearly omitting the truth as it doesn't fit the narrative. May day was the occupiers time to "disrupt traffic and close bridges". 


Hello, they were trying to blow up a bridge to "affect the 1%". And again, you guys act like you don't understand the blatant media bias. What ARE schools teaching today... Clearly not logical thinking, just keep buying the liberal narrative, while the occupiers destroy property and attempt to destroy the free enterprise system. 

Oh wait, they aren't occupiers, but anarchists... Dur hur!




As much as I hate to agree with him, he's right. There seems to have been a pretty distinct "pass" for the Occupy movement on this one when it comes to these guys being tied to them. Only a few stories that I have seen point out that they were members of the Occupy Cleveland movement, but if some nut-job militiaman decides to try and blow something up on his own, he's instantly identified with the militia group he was a member of, even if he's no longer affiliated with them. These guys were still members, actively attempted to gain roles of leadership within the movement, and tried to recruit within the movement for their own purposes. Yet none of that is getting mentioned in most of the articles published. Whether it's political, or the news companies wanting to try and uphold the whole "oh, look at these poor jobless kids/people oppressed by the wealthy" image for sympathy ratings is yet to be seen, but there definitely seems to be a slant in favor of Occupy on this one.

The major media is just an extension of the liberal democrat party... Bias of omission is their weapon of choice. 



Did you read Whales post, or are you just plugging your ears and yelling again? And yeah, you know Fox News with their leftist, democrat spin!

Interestingly, if you follow the link from the Breitbart site to their source for calling one of the suspects an Occupy Cleveland "leader," actually refers to him as an "organizer."

Print:

MSNBC - Forwards to NBC News. 

Radio



Note, all of the above articles were, at the time of me looking for them, on the front page of their respective websites, except NPR. It did come up upon a search, however. 

Quote from CNN article mentioning the Occupy Movement, where it seems as if the only connection between the two groups is the use of "One percent" as a term, as well as a statement about the FBI not looking into the Occupy Movement in this situation:

Originally posted by CNN CNN wrote:

During the course of the alleged plot, however, Baxter later expressed reservations, saying that blowing up a bridge "would not stop money flowing to the 'one percent,'" the complaint says.

The reference is catch-all phrase commonly employed by the Occupy movement in describing America's wealthy, particularly those atop the financial services industry, suggesting they hold disproportionate influence over the rest of the country.

"Occupy Cleveland," a local branch of the loosely organized protest that began last year in New York's Zuccotti Park, tweeted on Tuesday that it was "shocked by these allegations."

"We continue to be committed to creating social change through non-violence," the group said.

Federal authorities say the year-long operation focused on the five suspects and had not targeted the broader Occupy movement.

"The FBI and the Department of Justice are not and do not investigate movements," Dettelbach told reporters Tuesday. "We investigate crimes."


"So when Romney wins in a landslide, what will the liberal media do?"
