“You’re blowing it with Fox News. The axis today is not liberal and conservative, the axis is constructive-destructive, and you’ve cast your lot with the destructive people. Fox has become an incredibly destructive force in our society. You can be better, and this is going to be your legacy if you’re not careful.”
Steve Jobs to News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch in 2011 (via reallyfoxnews)
“Get the fuck back! Fuck back I said!” The NYPD officer’s voice was amplified behind the plexiglass helmet as he violently shoved protesters and reporters away from the intersection of Cortland and Broadway, one block from Zuccotti Park. It was 1:20 a.m., shortly after the police cordoned off the park to prepare for the cleaning. Requests to gain entry or move south down Broadway to see what was happening were met with the reply, “We have to clear the sidewalk.” One protester asked, “Isn’t the sidewalk public space?” The riot shields kept moving forward. “Clear the sidewalk. Move! Now!”
Police began vigorously jamming the torsos of those who stood on the sidewalk with their batons. One officer mockingly shouted, “Shame! Shame!” as he angrily shoved protesters further back up Broadway. A strong scent of vinegar punctuated the air, and a row of protesters groaned in pain. Water materialized out of the crowd and the demonstrators began pouring it into the afflicted’s eyes.
