CNN financial correspondent Alison Kosik described the "purpose" of Occupy Wall Street protestors "in 140 or less" as "bang on the bongos, smoke weed!" in Twitter comments captured by NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen:
Kosik deleted that comment from her Twitter feed. She later responded to a question about the list of demands from protesters by noting "the list of whines is too long already."
Wonkette wasn't too kind to Kosik in their post on the same topic which you wan read here -- Dim CNN Reporter’s News Analysis of Protesters: They Just ‘Smoke Weed’.
And here's more from Media Matters:
When Kosik reported on the protests on-air, she wasn't nearly as dismissive of concerns from Wall Street traders, explaining that "the traders that I talked to, they want protesters to understand they're getting hit hard in this economy as well."
