While the New Zealand mainstream media obsesses over the All Blacks, the New York police arrest a reported 700 Occupy Wall Street protesters. Will both TVNZ and TV3 continue to keep the demonstrations off the six o'clock news shows?
Thousands of Occupy Wall Street protesters swarmed the Brooklyn Bridge Saturday, shutting down car lanes and setting up yet another tense showdown with the NYPD.
An army of cops swooped in after the demonstrators took over the bridge's pedestrian walkway and flooded onto the car lanes heading to Brooklyn. The showdown halted traffic on the bridge for nearly three hours. - New York Daily News, Oct 1
