Michelle Fields and the moment of Truth for the MSM

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.

In the mid­dle of the rush was Reporter Michelle Fields of the Daily Caller:

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?

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.

In the middle of the rush was Reporter Michelle Fields of the Daily Caller:

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?
