    Well, they're not in Washington, are they? Of course they're protesting Wall Street. That's why it's called "Occupy Wall Street".

    They aren't supporting or opposing a political candidate or party. It isn't a political rally.

    MSNBC is the liberal equivalent of Fox and I agree that it's not a neutral source. I don't think any liberal would claim otherwise -- including the hosts on MSNBC. That's the distinction. Liberals know the difference between partisan commentary and actual news. Conservatives seem to think that anything that isn't wildly slanted to the right is illegitimate.

    The truth is never left nor right, it is just the truth.

    Was the Fox report true or wasn't it? That's all we need to know.

    So, now a political rally can oly be a political rally, if it's in D.C.?

    Well, that would be one indication. But of course the main criterion is that it has to support a candidate or party -- which of course OWS does not.

    Non-profits are allowed to engage in some politically lobbying dependent upon their total expenditures. Essentially, the bigger the organization's exempted program expenditures, the more they can spend on lobbying. Your view that they cannot at all is flat up wrong. There are certain political lobbying acts that they are barred from, but they are not barred from all political lobbying.

    Please stop discussing topics you do not understand.

    Of course the report is false on its face, as there is no longer an organization called ACORN. From the headline down, the story is a lie -- like so much of Fox's "news". Fox relied on an unnamed source and the story has been denied by NYCC. That's all there is to it.

    It's no secret that Fox has had a hard on for ACORN for years, and it's no secret why -- ACORN was very good at registering low income voters, and low income voters tend to vote for Democrats. Recall, Fox is an arm of the Republican Party.

    Sorry Adam, there is no way in hell MSNBC is the liberal equivalent of Fox. Sure MSNBC leans left, but Fox News is the extension of the Republican party; for starters Fox is run by Roger Ailes who was Republican operative during the Nixon Bush 41 years and was involved with Lee Atwater creating the racist Willie Horton ad in the 1988 presidential election. Fox previews all the Republican candidates they like; you'll never see that on MSNBC.

    Fox News = Republican Party

    You have evidence that the story is a lie. Yes?
