Subject:   [september17discuss] MoveOn Execs Now Official Spokespeople For OWS, According to MSM Execs

top MoveOn leaders / executives are all over national television

speaking for the movement. Saying We, We, We, We and directing people

to, which redirects to the DailyKos.


again, fully appreciate the help and support of MoveOn, but the MSM is

clearly using them as the spokespeople for OWS. I just had an

off-record discussion w/ NBC executives who say that other news execs

there plan to use them to divide the movement. This is an blatant

attempt to fracture the 99% into a Democratic Party organization. The

leadership of MoveON and the Daily Kos are Democratic Party operatives.

They do a lot of great work, but they are divide and conquer pawns.

For years they ignored Wall Street protests to keep complete focus on

the Republicans, in favor of Goldman's Obama and Wall Street's

Democratic leadership.


if anyone at Move On or Daily Kos would like to have a public debate

about these comments, we invite it.


if MoveOn leaders / executives are going to keep going on National TV to

speak for OWS, we need them to make a clear statement.


please urgently propose that statement or a plan to call them out in an

effective way.


know there are some people who think any attempts at co-option will be

unsuccessful, and there is some truth to that, but we can't let blatant

co-option attempts continue w/out a response. the longer we remain

silent as people get on national tv claiming to speak for and lead the

movement, the more damage will be done.
