RNC Protests, Outside Fox news

Aaron Sarver

Just got back from the shut-upathon outside Fox news headquarters. 500? people and at least as many police and reporters were there. As we walked off the subway we could hear people banging on all sorts of drum-type things. Various chants included Fox News Sells Fear and Shut Up directed towards O'Reilly. Code Pink was in force as well as some radical cheerleaders. Generally the police were tame, saw a few arrests. Every other person has a camera or microphone, so I wonder how that effects police behavior. Police were video taping as well. Off to a screening of the Yes Men! on a beautiful NYC day.
