Fox News Compares Occupy Wall Street Posters To The Unabomber

Over the weekend (10/8/11), Liz Trotta was asked by Uma Pemmaraju about the "media spin" on the Occupy Wall Street protests. Trotta said "I advise anybody who has a sense of humor left about this to go to occupywallstreet.com and what you will read is the ravings of what sounds like the Unabomber, and also the use of the word meta, a Greek degree of language." She later said "It's certainly better going down there and carrying signs than going out and hitting the pavement for a job… The liberal media is being accused of setting this up for Obama so that he can use this, these people as a wedge against the Republicans in the election. I don't know if that’s true or not, but the unions, the public service unions, couldn’t wait to get down there last week... It's a magnet for the disenchanted."

This is just more protestor-bashing by Fox as documented by News Hounds and Media Matters. But comparing the protestors to the Unabomber may be the worst of them all.
