I am by no means speaking for Thorin but I'll tell him to sit in during the media meeting just so everyone is on the same page. I do not believe he wants to make enemies with anyone or have trouble and that's the feeling im starting to get which sucks. You guys are an amazing bunch of people who work hard hours and hours,day after day doing what you do. I hope everyone can work together.

Hello media teamsters-
Just a quick update from the livestream front. I just got off the phone with the finance committee, we were scheduling to withdraw some our passed budget money for purchases to made tomorrow- we were informed that today finance was approached by Thorin with a bag or receipts attempting to be reimbursed for purchases he made, using our livestream budget money. Just to clarify we discussed in the past few meetings that Thorin's livestream channel, privately funded and not horizontal or accountable to the General Assembly, was to be explicitly precluded from recieving funding from the General Assembly. It is especially suspect that he attempted to do so with absolutely no communication to the OCCUPYNYC livestream committee. I think this is something that really needs to be re-addressed at tomorrow's meeting, the situation is seeming to escalate in terms of covert/hidden actions being take on behalf of the livestream/media team by Thorin, as he has also been represnting himself as the main contact person for all of media. see you all tomorrow at 5, i believe the agreed location was 60 wall st.
