In Washington, D.C., police have arrested about 85 more protesters taking part in the “Democracy Sping” actions against corporate lobbying and big money in politics. This comes after more than 400 people were arrested after a sit-in at the Capitol on Monday. The corporate networks widely ignored Monday’s arrests. According to a tally by The Intercept, CNN did not devote any coverage to the protests, MSNBC mentioned them for 12 seconds, and Fox News discussed them for 17 seconds. CNN later posted a short item online. Click here to see our interview with Democracy Spring organizer Kai Newkirk.
