Jesse and Irene discuss media

After you spend awhile down at Zuccotti Park, you think nothing can faze you. Kanye West showing up wearing gold bling and not talking? Sure. Rage Against the Machine playing Woody Guthrie? Why not. Cool cops? Been there, occupied that.

Though we have to say, watching OWS media hero Jesse LaGreca being questioned by Irene McGee, best known for being the woman who walked off Real World: Seattle was one of the odder moments of this long, strange trip we’ve been on.


Full disclosure: We had spent the day hanging out with Ms. McGee, who now devotes her time to a “media-on-media” podcast called No One’s Listening. We were taking her to all our favorite haunts – “Here’s the drum circle center, here’s the food donation area, this is where everyone is cleaning up in case Mayor Bloomberg tries to kick them out tomorrow…” – but decided that in order to get the full story on the media situation on Occupy Wall Street, the former reality show star would have to meet Mr. LaGreca. Who better to opine on the MSM coverage of the protests?

Of course, MTV has their own way of covering Occupy Wall Street. We just prefer our version better.
