Stunner. Video Reveals NY Times Reporter Is Also an #OWS Activist

A recent video posted at a far left website revealed that New York Times reporter Natasha Lennard not only reported on the #OWS protests, she participated in and helped organize the radical movement.
Big Government reported, via Lucianne:

A newly-discovered video–filmed by Occupy Wall Street supporters themselves–reveals that New York Times reporter Natasha Lennard is not merely covering the protests, but is also apparently taking part in planning and executing them.

In the video, Lennard is seen participating as a featured speaker in a discussion among anarchists, communists, and other radicals as they examine the theory, strategy and tactics of the Occupy protests.

The discussion was held at the left-wing Bluestockings book store in New York on Friday, Oct. 14, and filmed and promoted by the radical magazine Jacobin. The audience included participants in, and apparent organizers of, the Occupy Wall Street demonstration in lower Manhattan.

Lennard, who has also written for Politico and Salon, is identified in the video by the panel’s moderator as a freelancer for the Times, and also as the Times reporter who was arrested along with seven hundred activists on the Brooklyn Bridge on Oct. 1.

When Lennard reported on her arrest at the time, she appears to have concealed her own apparent role in the Occupy protests, implying that her arrest was an abuse of press freedom. She used her affiliation with the Times to win her early release.

So not only is the mainstream media assisting the #OWS movement in secret email groups to craft their message, they are openly organizing the radical anti-capitalist movement at public meetings, too.
Here is Lennard in action:

    Just more lies from the left – no story here…

  • myohmy

    Protesting against the establishment and taking their money too is morally acceptable to OWS.

  • Mark1957

    Only one? That is stunning.

    I know everyone keeps dismissing this as oh, “Just the left, again,” but isn’t trying to overthrow the U.S. Government an act of war, or an act of Treason?

    Is there anyone with the slightest bit of morals or character in this government to put a boot up the butts of these people and try them for crimes against the U.S.? Can those two wastes of taxpayer money John Boehner and Eric Cantor, please start being honorable men, and not little, scared children and do their job. DO SOMETHING! EVEN IF IT’S WRONG, DO SOMETHING! AND IF THEY’RE NOT RESPONSIBLE, COULD THOSE WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO BE DO SOMETHING, SO WE AT LEAST KNOW YOU’RE ALIVE!

    Actually, this is a big deal because it is unethical for reporters to cover stores where they are personally involved, absent full disclosure. Most news organizations forbid any political involvement. NPR, for example, just fired a talk show host over this.

    Jean Baudrillard told us that the next revolution would be manufactured, produced, reported and televised.

  • Report everybody

    Well Jim if you are gonna report on OWS support, shouldn’t you report everybody?
    Oh that’s right shhhh Catholic Church:

    The Vatican called on Monday for the establishment of a “global public authority” and a “central world bank” to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and often ineffective in dealing fairly with crises. The document from the Vatican’s Justice and Peace department should please the “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrators and similar movements around the world who have protested against the economic downturn.

  • It can be said that The New York Times hasn’t been terribly concerned with journalistic ethics in many decades, not since the 1930s and their support for Walter Duranty, he of the Soviet-stroking lies. The fact that the Times continued to support Duranty’s Pulitzer Prize for decades, even after his dishonesty was well documented, speaks volumes.

    The Vatican has it’s own banking problems. And I am a practicing Catholic.

    The problem is the MSM knowingly hires activists (center-left through ultra radical) as “reporters.” Somehow we’re supposed to believe we’re getting objective, unbiased information on a movement from someone who’s actively coordinating it. At least Fox News tells you you’re getting info from a party hack or activist.


    Interesting spelling of “Lennard”. Let’s see now. What other names begin with ‘Len’.

  • Bobbi

    I think that there should be a law shaker foreigners fomenting sedition I’n this country. Of course, with a Brit I’n the Oval Office, Natasha, with her British socialist ideas, fits tight I’n.
    I also think we need to expel the Communist to Cuba.

  • John Fembup

    Dishonest reporter, dishonest editors, dishonest newspaper.

    The Times sent me a card a week or so ago that says “We want you back.”

    Fat chance.


    time to fire her ass so she can spend all day with the morons

    2012 Pres. Candidate Rick Perry: I Don’t Know If Obama’s Birth Certificate Is Real

    The fact is NOBODY knows if Obama’s Birth Certificate is real since Obama has done EVERYTHING humanly possible to keep the alleged Birth Certificate from being FORENSICALLY EXAMINED.

    As many twenty computer and document experts have examined the PDF Copy of Obama’s alleged Birth Certificate and they have all declared it a likely forgery.

    The Birth Certificate and Obama’s eligibility is EXTREMEMLY IMPORTANT. Any one who would try to minimise the significance of this is issue is an absolute MORON and a TRAITOR.

  • Bozo the Clone

    More than one. An NPR reporter was fired for being part of the DC #OWS, and Time magazine that had a smear campaign on its cover against the Tea Party two months ago, this time has a cover proclaiming the #OWS people as the “Silent Majority.” No, really.

    Disgraceful and stomach churning, the whole treacherous lot of them.

  • YourMaster

    I hope someone finds out where this women works and either defunds the organization….
    or tell them to fire her and any other reporters caught do up planning OSW protests.

    Fire her ass immediately and strip her of any pay or benefits….

    she can spend all day with the dumbasses who are ruining this country.

    the wealthy will make sure never to donate a dime to the left or the democrats ever again.

    Attn. #9 Commie Parasite, same as the rest of the Commie Parasites:

    Y’all 99% full blooded Blank Slater OWS Commie Parasites only wish you could mutate several levels of magnitude forward into Ants.

    Or maybe not! Because then even the Ants’ perfected Socialist Redistribution would probably be “unfair” in requiring you Commie Parasites to do too much of your hallowed “equal” labor?

    As that Commie guy I’ve mentioned before said when I finally got him trapped and pinned him down on what “equal work” he would do in the Utopia, “Someone’s got to manage it.” Apparently that’s what they all think, as evidenced by their Demands, completely devoid of solutions as to how to actually produce what their Demands wish for, that is, apart from their usual Master-Slave Model of repetitive failure.

    But, hey, those Blank Slaters, including Obama, really just don’t have much up there to work with, apparently right from their “unjust” births into this world therefore comprised of their own obligate victimology.

  • Last month only about 10% of the population believed that the MSM was truthful or unbiased in its reporting. Thank you NY Times for helping to prove why. Next month only about 5% will believe it……………

  • the liberal media no longer reports the news anymore………….they mold the news to shape their bias……………they are now importing radicals in from other countries……….this one just happens to be from Britan…………

    “Video Reveals NY Times Reporter Is Also an #OWS Activist”

    What a surprise! NOT!

    Nevertheless, kudos for Breitbart and other for outing this partisan “journalist” from The New York Pravda.

  • Natasha Leonard is a freelancer. she doesn’t work for the NYT

  • she is a member of the free and indepentent press. you know the one the founding fathers created freedom of the press for.

  • if people want to stop this biased media you could boycott the people that sponser the media. from the corporations that fund the bias on television to the businesses that advertise in the newspapers. american business has an obligation to see that the venues in which they are advertising are not propagandizing the american people. when you realize that most of the news media are fighting for an end to free enterprise you realize that the american businessman is financing their own extinction.

    Report everybody commented:

    Your post is wrong. The Pope issued a document, and the AP commented that OWS would take comfort in it. That doesn’t mean the Pope supports OWS, and you know it.

    You’re no better than that unethical NYT reporter, who claimed to be a reporter to get out of jail, and a freelancer afterward.
