Mediaite reports on rumors that journalists were violently prevented by police from covering last night’s raid of Zuccotti Park, during which the protestors were forced to leave the park and their campsite was dismantled.

On Mogulite: University of Texas professor Daniel Hamermash wants to protect people from workplace discrimination, but you probably don’t want to count yourself among the group he’s protecting, since he’s especially concerned about workplace discrimination against ugly people.
