Cornel West arrested (NCFTV)Update on Monday, October 17 at 3:25 p.m.: A spokesperson for Dr. Cornel West told The Root that following a court appearance this afternoon he was released from jail.
Update: According to a message retweeted on Cornel West’s Twitter page, “Dr. Cornel West will be spending the night behind bars and is ordered to appear in court Monday at 1 p.m. EST.”
CNN actually reported on this today…
“Over the weekend, 19 more people were arrested in Washington, D.C., by Supreme Court police, while over 90 were taken into police custody in New York.”
However, it was conspicuously obscure, and didn’t mention Dr. West, who they did a previous personal interview with.
Methinks the corporate media is afraid that the Tea Baggers might synpathasize with the movement.
