A follow-up to the followup

What makes this material interesting is not routine violence against protestors - that always happens, though the grab-arrests while they're actually talking to reporters to shut them up is a little atypical; nor is it the attempted secret plans for warehousing of protest detainees. What's more interesting is the direct action against media and representatives thereof itself, and, in particular, direct action against large corporate media agents such as reporters for ABC. That's interesting.

eta: Ah, the "liberal media." (And since people are missing it: this is a link to worksafe video showing Tom Brokaw saying that the Democrats can't attack John McCain because he was a POW, which is to say, spouting a GOP propaganda line as cold hard fact.)
