Diane Sawyer: Occupy Wall Street Protests Have ‘Spread to More Than a Thousand Countries’

ABC’s Diane Sawyer, who is ensconced in the 1% of America that the “Occupy Wall Street” occupiers are complaining about, is nevertheless fairly excited about the rapid spread of the protests. In fact, Sawyer is so thrilled that yesterday she added several hundred countries to the world:

Speaking of Wall Street, we thought we’d bring you up to date on those protesters, the Occupy Wall Street movement. As of tonight, it has spread to more than 250 American cities, more than a thousand countries — every continent but Antarctica.

And of course they are calling for the one percent of richest Americans to find more ways to help the 99 percent and we wondered what’s the gulf between them tonight? So how much does the top one percent in this country earn? Well, on average their incomes, $1.1 million. Compare that to the bottom 90 percent, 100 million households. They earn an average of $31,000.

Occupy Wall Street turned Diane Sawyer into quite the nation builder — literally.

Sawyer seems a little too desperate to give the “movement” galactic legitimacy. Did she mean to say “a thousand cities” around the world? That still seems like a terribly high estimate:

It’s okay — Sawyer was just as fair-minded back when she reported on the Tea Parties. What? Nevermind. Okay, sure, but the Tea Party had that coming for refusing to let John Lewis speak at a rally. Wait, that wasn’t a Tea Party — Now I’m really confused.
