Keith Olbermann blasted the mainstream media on his show Wednesday night for being either “too corrupt or too dense” to understand the “Occupy Wall Street” movement.

Numerous media outlets repeated the criticism that the protest had no specific purpose or demands.

Fox News host Charles Gasparino called the protest “idiotic” and CNN anchor Erin Burnett mocked the demonstration in her debut. The New York Times had described the protest as a “noble but fractured and airy movement of rightly frustrated young people” whose purpose was “virtually impossible to decipher.”

“Here is what Occupy Wall Street says and wants,” Olbermann said.

He then read the “Declaration of the Occupation of New York City.” The declaration was approved by the New York City General Assembly, the decision-making body for the “Occupy Wall Street” protest, at the end of September.
