a "theme" I've noticed in the media interviews with some of the people
speaking out against the OWS movement ...

"The big weakness of the Occupy X movement is its lack of a central organization/specific spokesperson to communicate with."

As I recall, the theme of the coverage of the TEA Party movement was that its strength came from the fact that there was no specific spokesperson for "The TEA Party", nor was there a "central organization" ... it was a "grass-roots" effort, all the little "tea parties" were not run by a specific organization.

1. The media is losing their minds over the fact that they can't nail specific people down
and then research them in order to rip them to shreds.

3. They're just throwing stuff against the wall to see what sticks. That complaint is actually working.
I've heard people parrot it.
