They are all watching a network not to be named, George, and for whatever reason there is a delay, and so when they hear it they are going to, trust me, erupt and you and I won’t be able to hear each other.
California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom • Offering a comment to ABC News regarding the Prop 8 Supreme Court decision, which he learned about from the reporter who contacted him. Why’s that? Well, here’s the thing: CNN, which famously got burned by a Supreme Court ruling last year, has been playing it extra cautious this time around, so much so that all of the other networks had the decision long before CNN did. And Newsom’s staff was watching CNN for the news. Hear that? That’s what overcompensation sounds like. Classic Zucker.

As a follow-up to our post last night, we’d just like to point out that Fox News, which didn’t even have anything up about the protests last night, now has it as its lead item.

More on Occupy Wall Street and the idea of a “hook”

andurrs says: Funny. I would have thought good journalists could find their hook. Silly me.

» SFB says: That’s not our point at all. Journalists can find a good hook to create an individual story. But a story like this needs more than that. This is an attempt to create a large-scale movement. The standards are higher. To outsiders looking at this passively, this story doesn’t have any clear objective other than creating a dialogue about populist anger around Wall Street. Which is necessary, but not necessarily a “hook.” Think of every notable populist movement in the past couple of years: The Tea Party had Rick Santelli making an audacious speech on a trading floor. The Arab Spring had a Tunisian who set himself on fire out of anger. Egypt had Wael Ghonim and massive crowds at Tahrir Square that stuck around for weeks. And so on. Occupy Wall Street does not need a hook like this to get coverage (and media outlets should cover it whether or not it has a “hook” — something they might actually find in the process of covering it, by the way). But it’d be a stronger movement if it had something like this to coalesce around. — Ernie @ SFB

Occupy Wall Street: Yes, the media is covering it.

beautyofapple says: And still we hear nothing on main stream media. (Edit: After this post, they corrected.)

» SFB says: Here are 900 news articles from the past 24 hours, from news sources as diverse and mainstream as The New York Times, The Guardian, The Washington Post and ABC News. Enjoy. (Note: This is not to say the media isn’t underplaying it, but let’s get our facts straight, friends.) — Ernie @ SFB
