Complete video at: Journalist and author Glenn Greenwald argues that media coverage of Occupy Wall Street has ranged mostly from critical to non-existent, thanks to mainstream media journalists who are now part of the elite class the movement is protesting. Speaking of former New York Times editor Bill Keller and CNN journalist Erin Burnett, Greenwald asks, "Why is the son of the CEO of Chevron and the fiancé of the second highest ranking executive at Citigroup scornful of Wall Street protesters? It's because this is who our media class is, they are integrated fully into the political class." ----- Join Glenn Greenwald -- former constitutional rights attorney, best-selling author (How Would a Patriot Act? and A Tragic Legacy), and one of today's most incisive and probing political journalists -- in conversation with Salon founder David Talbot. Glenn will be discussing his newest book, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR SOME: How the Law Is Used to Destroy Equality and Protect the Powerful, a ferociously argued indictment of the state of the American legal system. Greenwald charges both parties, the courts, and the media with creating an oligarchy for political and financial elites. These groups, Greenwald shows, are now afforded not merely strategic advantages within the legal system, but actual immunity in the face of the most egregious criminality.
