New York Observer: Exclusive “Occupy Wall Street” Unaired Fox Footage (by mavgirl69)

Who is this man?! He’s fabulous.

Boom. Your “leaderless movement” has a leader, if they want it. This guy (his name is Jesse LaGreca, for news’ sake) is extremely eloquent and really said everything that needed to be said here. He didn’t hold back. He just laid it out, plain and clear. Great clip. So why didn’t this (reportedly) air? The WaPo’s Eric Wemple blames the interviewer, who let himself get overwhelmed by someone who was way smarter than the circular, overly-laden questions suggested.

And like that, I understand what #occupywallstreet is about. @nbcnews, call this guy.
