Several weeks ago someone on Twitter posted a picture showing WFOR being picketed by a small group of people. Last week while poking around the interwebs I found out WPLG got picked also. The small group of people, about a dozen or so, can be seen standing on the grass and sidewalk next to WPLG’s building holding sings saying “Media won’t ask so we will. Where’s the birth certificate”, holding signs that promote a popular right wing website etc…
Olga Bichachi, a former reporter at WSVN and then at WPLG, appears to have been at the protest as well. In a video recorded at the protest, and posted on Youtube, Bichachi criticizes the media for covering trivial stories like house fires and shootings and for being run by “liberal people”.
“…the good citizens of the US are protesting the changes that are being made in our nation, in our liberties, in our schools and no one is listening to us… and we’re not going to stop trying to get this nation back on its right track until its on its right track”
“…the people who control the media are very liberal. There’s no doubt about it. I’m not making this up. These people are liberal. They’re following their own agenda”
The complete video of Bichachi’s statement after the jump
