The most important US news in the UK media at the moment? The acquittal of Amanda Knox.
Which just goes to show what is wrong with the world.
Because nearly a week in, the Occupy Wall Street protests have only just come on to my radar (and by the way, I've checked the BBC news website - not a mention to be seen). Maybe it's because rioting looters are interesting, but peaceful protests against capitalism gone wrong aren't.
And what started out in NYC now seems to be spreading across the country (and internationally) in what some (maybe prematurely, but hopefully not) are heralding as a Tea Party for the left.
More power to them I say - it can only be good for the rest of us that the populace of the 'World's biggest democracy' (sic) discovers that being to the left of Hitler doesn't make you Stalin...and that unfettered, uncontrolled capitalism is rabid animal that needs putting down.
Anyway, here's rather nice film on the events...
