The New York Post's Disgust For Occupy Wall Street Finally In Full Bloom

NYP cover 9 4 11 .jpg

The headline inside the paper is "GOONS OCCUPY BRAWL STREET." After weeks of borderline-derisive coverage of Occupy Wall Street, the Post has finally taken the gloves off and the earrings out.

The story jumps off of this video, depicting a deranged-looking guy throwing a tantrum at the park:

Couldn't really call it a "brawl," could you? Seems as though the guy was contained pretty easily, and we've heard worse stories coming out of the park than that (fistfights over tent distribution; obviously, the rape and other sexual assault; crusties hitting a girl; etc). Not that that matters to the Post; any disturbance that ends up in front of their cameras is good enough for a gleeful blaring headline.

New York Post is a gossip rag pretending to be a legitimate news source.  Probably going broke and knew this type of front page will help sell more copies.  NYPost stinks.
