San Francisco Chronicle Leaves It To Beaver Rather Than Covering REAL Wall Street Protests

I'm going to cover this story about Wall Street protesters in San Francisco since a corporate owned SFGate.com, aka San Francisco Chronicle has buried the story.  Unlike the Bay Citizen, a much better community based publication, the Chron preferred to live in la la land today with a lead story about a beaver removed from an artist's mural in Martinez, CA.  I'm serious, this is one of the lead stories on SFGate today.

For those who might be unfamiliar with the 1950's comedy sitcom:
Leave It to Beaver is an American television situation comedy about an inquisitive but often naïve boy named Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver (portrayed by Jerry Mathers) and his adventures at home, in school, and around his suburban neighborhood.- Wikipedia
Notice the term "naive boy"?  Well, that's how these corporate journalists at the S.F. Chronicle view the American public these days as extremely naive and stupid. They believe they have control of our minds and of reality itself and therefore can omit relevant facts, such as that of a relevant protests in San Francisco yesterday.
Hundreds of people descended on downtown San Francisco Thursday to support the "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrations that are going on in New York. The tagline for the protest is "We Are the 99 Percent," and here's how they describe themselves:
"Hundreds of people descended on downtown San Francisco Thursday to support the "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrations that are going on in New York.  The tagline for the protest is "We Are the 99 Percent," and here's how they describe themselves:

'We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we're working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent'". - Who Are the '99 Percent?' - The Bay Citizen
The Bay Citizen story went on to provide real journalistic value by interviewing various people from the protests including an attorney Mary Ann Meany, Charlene Woodcock, a retired book editor, Larry Yee, a service technician, Evelyn Sanchez, a community organizer, Karen Henry, a clinical trial specialist at a pharmaceutical company, Chris Tully, an unemployed person, Ullises Olvera, a San Francisco State University student and Darnell Boyd, a tenant organizer for SRO Hotels.

In yet another story The Bay Citizen presented a plethora of photos showing the realness of the issues raised by the Wall Street protesters.  See Wall Street Protests Come to San Francisco.  Instead of posting the photos here, I will link to the story. The photos show a seriousness that any sound journalistic entity couldn't possibly ignore and push off into oblivian as the Chron apparently did.  When one begins to recognize corporate owned media and how it whitewashes the news and people's voices, it's clear why alternative news is taking off while the main media is plunging in popularity.
