“So many reporters are like reptiles”

Posted by Charles II on November 2, 2011

That’s what Bill Lo, a security guard whose description of the Oakland police busting up the encampment was recorded by Dennis Bernstein of KPFA, said.

The description is worth reading, because it reveals details such as the close collaboration between law enforcement units from many localities–they have clearly rehearsed this–but the one comment about reporters was worth noting. Good on you, Bill Lo, for putting the bloodless, predatory nature of so much of modern reporting into a memorable phrase.
