After reading this blog I found that this was very interesting. Prior to me reading this blog I did not know anything about Occupy Wall Street (OWS). OWS from what I got from the reading is a big protest made by people about the inequalities in economics mainly big companies and rich people avoiding taxes. This subject seemed to get a lot of people riled up and in my eyes it is for a good cost. I believe that no matter how rich or poor you are, people or corporations should not be able to get around paying taxes if others are. I do not know how well Greg Mitchell (Author of story) pitch of people taking out all their shares in the “six too big to fail” (Mitchell,1) wall street firms would help send a message and help solve this problem.
In my eyes I believe that this is indeed journalist. I say this because the author is providing an important story intended towards a large audience, and has not only reported the story, but also investigated things related to the story. Also the post was on the website of a big magazine. Also I would say this is journalism because it has to do with organizations such as the government and focuses on social and economic issues.
I think that Greg is a very down to earth writer. He is not a writer that looks at both sides of the story but instead it seems like he is trying to pursue his targeted audience to buy into what he believes. He seems like a writer who is strong about his opinion, will stick to his guns, and don’t care what people think about what he has to say. I can not say that I totally trust him because I do not know a lot about him but in think that he can build my trust because he has been writing for a while so that means he is doing something right. His article is sort of compelling to read, I had to read it over twice to actually grasp what he was saying but what he said was actually interesting.
