Last night was Occupy Night at Virtually Speaking Susie, my internet radio show. I was fortunate enough to have as my guests online organizer Ali Savino, who's camping with OccupyDC, and Jesse LaGreca (The Ministry of Truth at Daily Kos), who became a viral internet sensation after Fox News interviewed him at Wall Street -- and didn't run the tape. He made such an impression, even Christiane Amanpour grabbed him as a guest for This Week on Sunday.
He told us Crooks and Liars is one of the sites he makes sure to read every day, and that even though he's been interviewed non-stop for several days, he was happy to take time out to come on my show. (Even though he had to find a quiet alley where he could talk.)
It was an interesting show. Ali spoke about the tension between the OccupyDC and October2011 movements, and how it was difficult to keep the media from confusing them. (October2011 is occupying with the specific intent of ending the war in Afghanistan.)
