The world is not flat.. It is upside down



China comments on role of press while  protests become common through out the capitalist world. 


An op-ed from China Daily commenting on the role of press in the US.
One of the best-kept secrets in the United States over the past two weeks seems to be the protest on and near Wall Street in New York.
More than 1,000 people protested on the first daySeptember 17,marching and chanting slogansYet the demonstrationknown asOccupy Wall Streetdid not appear on the major networksevening news or in major newspapers the next day.
The protestnow in its 14th dayonly got limited coverage last Saturday when heavy-handed police arrested close to 100 people and pepper-sprayed several female demonstratorsBut most coverage that day was not in-depth.
It is a shame that most so-called mainstream media outlets have miserably failed to inform the public over the past two weeks
