A group of mainstream media reporters are gathered around a hole in the ground.

Reporter #1: (Speaking in hushed tones) "Much like waiting for the ground hog to pop it's head up so we will know that it is Spring, we wait here for the President to appear, and tell us what we should do about this whole "American Spring" thing. Oh, oh, here he is!"

"Mr. President, what can you tell us about the protesters of Occupy Wall Street?"

"Well, they are very angry and frustrated about the current economic situation. Okay, then, I have to go back into my hole now..."

"Mr. President, what should we do about this situation?"

"Well, has the rioting began yet?"

"Well, no, actually. The protesters are refusing to respond in kind to the violent police brutality they ere receiving."

"Well, then, just keep doing as you have been. Okay, gotta go now, bye!"

Reporter #1: (turning to another reporter, with a smile) "And here we've been getting all this criticism from the alternative media for ignoring tens of thousands of protesters filling the streets of NY, and the rest of the country. Look who's going to be eating crow, now!"
