NPR hasn’t aired a story on the “Occupy Wall Street” protest — now entering its second week — but several of you aired your concerns about the lack of coverage, and Ralph Nader called to say NPR is ignoring the left.
“You’ll cover the Tea Party, but god forbid you actually cover sane Americans demanding civilized economic policy,” wrote Brad Nolen from Mobile, AL.
NPR.org included a stream of Associated Press stories on the subject such as Dozens Arrested At ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Protest, 80 People Arrested At ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Protest, and Protesters Vow To Camp Near Wall St. Indefinitely.
But the online posts were not enough for Daniel Clay from Atlanta, GA, who wrote, “Does NPR think this is unimportant? Are you going to wait for someone to die or commit serious violence before you give it the attention it deserves?”
