Homework Assignment

On all of the forums you frequent, take notice at how the conversation is being dominated by a small handful of posters who have turned the discussion towards SUPPORT of the Occupy movement.

Take notice of their low post count and how many of those posts have been in support of the Occupy movement.

Take notice of their tactic of insisting the movement is peaceful while denying all links and evidence to the contrary.

Take notice of the dates in which they joined your forum.

Now research the term agitprop and learn how your internet discussion places have suddenly become Occupied with the goal of creating the illusion of a large body of support for this movement.

What did you THINK these people were doing with all their laptops and media devices?
