4. Its amazing,

the amount of footage that you can find on you tube, RT and Al Jazeera with regard to both the peaceful marches and violent clashes, involving 10's of thousands of people, and it doesn't make the news here.

Even closer to home, the student protests in Quebec were always under-reported, and mis-characterized (like OWS) in English language media, and we seldom hear or see the plight of South Americans fighting for land and governance rights or against corruption and austerity.

If everyday people here became informed how other parts of the world react to injustice; then I think the media, pundits and politicians would have a much more difficult time trying to spin the 'fiscal cliff' narrative as something akin to eating peas.
