Occupy Wall Street Has Gone Interplanetary!

Breitbart's Big Journalism reports that Diane Sawyer is more than a little carried away by the filthy and foul-mouthed demonstrators in New York City and other places, saying they started a trend that spread into a "thousand countries."

Writing at Malkin’s spot, Doug Powers makes the excellent observation that this was likely a Freudian slip:

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. …

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....
