"The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."
-- Adam Smith
In the meantime, critical thinkers can make up their own mind, which is the purpose of public debate.
ACORN Officials Scramble, Firing Workers And Shredding Documents, After Exposed As Players Behind Occupy Wall Street Protests | Fox News
Speaking rationally, versus hypothetically, as I posted above given the credibility of the Fox headline (zero) the remainder of the story rates an equal rating.
While I have no doubt that NYCC may have sent some people down to 'join' the OWS protest, Fox most likely turned it into a huge, steaming pile of propaganda (as they are wont to do).
1. Fox had even named the number of sources in the story. As written, it appears that the number of anonymous sources could number a half dozen or more. Please feel free to read the story and tell us how many sources you think it contains: ACORN Officials Scramble, Firing Workers And Shredding Documents, After Exposed As Players Behind Occupy Wall Street Protests | Fox News
2. Fox had not lied, blatantly, in the headline. The lies are so obvious, after reading the story, that they insult my intelligence. Apparently others are more tolerant... or something.
