The CBC and the Occupy Movement.

CBC coverage of the Occupy movement: health and safety concerns, moving them out of public spaces, police potentially moving in.

The tone/implications of the coverage: blaming protestors for occupying public spaces (interviewing those poor people who suddenly can’t walk their dogs in the park - I’m crying, so sad), how they are recalcitrant for not obeying authorities at every turn (because, of course, the authorities must always be obeyed because they always know better).

What they are not talking about: anything of substance relating to the movement.
