The Occupy movement has been growing all over the country. As I mentioned in my previous post, a big development happened recently when 24-year-old Iraq War veteran, Scott Olsen was critically injured by a police projectile and was hospitalized with a skull fracture during a raid on the Occupy Oakland protest Tuesday. On the first hour of his new morning show Saturday, Chris Hayes talked with Director of Progressive Advocacy Group Demos, Heather McGhee and Senior Editor of The Atlantic, Ta-Nehisi Coates about how these clashes with police have only propelled the Occupy Movement further and how the movement has now gone international from England to Tahrir Square. Later in the same hour Hayes had a great talk with former New York Governor, Eliot Spitzer about how the Occupy Movement has focused the national debate to inequality and the propaganda campaign on the right to demonize the protests as anti-semitic. Later in the show Hayes also talked with U.S. News and World Report Editor in Chief, Mort Zuckerman about the dysfunctionality of the current tax system.
