Someone identifying with the Anonymous Internet group may have decided that Saskatoon sounded obscure and cool enough to be participating in Occupy Wall Street, that they deserved a little extra boost of attention. The Saskatoon news media jumped all over it, but with an unbalanced article that appears not to have made an attempt to contact anyone in Anonymous for their side of the story.
The very nature of Anonymous, not having a command structure or hierarchy would make it difficult, but that should be explained well in the article. Instead I sent a criticism to the news director.
These sort of “weasel words” wouldn’t pass muster on Wikipedia, and shouldn’t make it onto a news website. Identify who the ‘some’ are, or at least state that those people have been interviewed but did not want their identities revealed.
Meanwhile, in another example of failed “journalism” a guest rightly calls the CBC “Fox News” as O’Leary attacks him as a “nutbar” while obviously taking the guest’s position personally. It’s a video exchange you have to see, and should be on YouTube for a wider audience to share, as it sums up what’s wrong with the media, and what Occupy Wall Street is all about.
