From Accuracy in Media:
“Protesters have erected a “tent of dreams” over the statue of General McPherson in McPherson Square in defiance of the National Park Police’s enforcement of a ban on camping.” –NPR, January 30, 2012
AIM has reported just about everything regarding the Occupy Movement in these past months. We’ve challenged key media narratives that sought to justify or apologize for Occupier’s actions. On Eviction Day, AIM wanted to find out what this “tent of dreams” was that NPR was breathlessly reporting on. What did we find? Oh, you know, smelly hippies and misguided college kids with too much Critical Theory.
