ALBANY –- Occupy protesters took their vocal wrath out on the New York Post at the state Capitol this morning, with chants against everyone from its owner, Rupert Murdoch, to its state editor, Fred Dicker.
The protesters timed their protest on the third floor to a radio interview by Dicker with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo. The demonstrators, which included members of VOCAL-NY, held signs and shouted about Cuomo’s generally positive treatment in the New York City tabloid.
"Fred Dicker: Mouthpiece for Governor 1%" said one sign. "Rupert Murdoch: Public Enemy #1" said another.
About 30 protesters showed up. They were blocked from coming down the third floor hallway outside the pressroom by a dozen or so troopers.
On his radio show, broadcast in Albany, Dicker called the protestors a "rag tag collection."
