So you form your opinion based on what you watch on TV? I know CNN is not Fox, but neither is Democracy now. I'd say on that spectrum, CNN is closer to Fox. One of the charges that the OWS people are saying is that the M$M is lying to us left and right, and if you choose to entertain that notion for even one second you must logically deduce that trying to understand the movement through the eyes of its enemies is indeed impossible to achieve.
Go to one, talk to people there. Yes you will find drum beating hippies, yes you will find incoherence, but what is not widely seen on TV is that you will also find incredibly articulate mostly (but not all) young people who are not apathetic and want to make some changes in the world to make it a better place, and are willing to get off the couch and do something about it. That should make you wonder about the common narrative of youth today. If you cannot do that for whatever reason (not local enough, home responsibilities whatever) You can actually see a lot of it live online through livestreaming. Youtube also has a lot of information. At least try to see the narrative through the eyes of the people who are making the statement and not the detractors before making your opinion.
Or you could vote, or you could contact your representative. I did it this week, I tried to fit my concerns into a 2000 *character* limit box on my state representative's website. Not big enough, so I called asking for an email address and was told, that (s)he was too busy for that. Huh? Upon further pressing I was told by the staffer that I could fax and he gave me a fax number. I'm guessing that's a dead letter office right there. Either that or they compile all the faxes into stacks and then process all the info that way (which a staffer from another office told me that's how they do it.) Faxes? Are you kidding me? So the state instead of using email and search capabilities etc. etc. (grep anyone?) instead chooses to use dead trees to compile reams of concerns? At the cost of the taxpayers. Again why should I be surprised, it's gubment after all - but why is that to be tolerated? That's the point here, so many things are broken and people have let it slide for far too long.
