Business News Looks at Occupy Wall Street

Here is Aaron Task of the Yahoo! financial news program The Daily Ticker giving one of the best, most honest, overviews of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations:

It is sometimes surprising that financial reporting is less biased and more honest that traditional media. I guess that is because real business people need facts to work from. The kind of propaganda in the traditional mass media may be useful for swaying opinion and mobilizing the political movement. But if you are in a profit-making industry you can't afford illusions. You need facts. So the "business news" is usually more honest than traditional media.
