There have been a lot of significant moments concerning the occupy movement nationwide, but Robert Stacy McCain interview with Michelle Fields is potentially the turning point in the relationship between the Occupy Movement and the MSM.
Yesterday the Occupy movement charged the doors of the American Dream Summit in Washington DC.
Today Stacy McCain interviewed her, it was Amazing. (all emphasis mine)
Robert Stacy McCain: You won’t be going back?
Michelle Fields, Daily Caller: I won’t be going back to cover it. I actually don’t feel safe going back to those protests, because they singled me out, they singled out the Daily Caller. I just don’t think it’s safe for me to be back around those people.
They actually had a person covering me all night, for about three hours, with someone walking around with a camera, screaming things out to me like, “You’re worse than Fox,” and attacking me, attacking what I’m wearing. So I won’t be returning.
It gets better (or actually worse):
McCAIN: Wow. Wow. And so they had somebody whose job was apparently to monitor you?
FIELDS: Exactly, yes. So for about three hours, I had someone following me around, harassing me, screaming things out to me. And I actually did not feel comfortable, because at one point there were a whole group of men surrounding me saying, ‘F—Michelle Fields.’ And I went to a police officer and I told him that I felt these people were harassing me. And the police officer said he’d take care of it, but it never ended. These people were harassing me for the entire evening.
In my opinion this is the turning point for the MSM. For one week we have seen the media go into a frenzy over anonymous accusers making unnamed accusations against the GOP frontrunner. Now we have a female reporter directly harassed by the occupy movement to the point where she is afraid to report on them.
This is the time where the media decides if they want to occupy responsibility or not. If the media chooses to ignore it, I think the game is over. If Politico chooses not to run it, if Morning Joe decides that it’s not newsworthy, then they can forget the fiction of being media, they are simply propagandists with expensive equipment wearing a nice toupee.
Decide MSM are you reporters or are you stenographers? Which will it be?
