  1. This morning a reporter for CNN’s ireport stopped by in a Mercedes Benz and snakeskin boots to try to set up a 3-minute media spot. This guy (Percy Lipinski ) in addition to being a reporter is a US military contractor and former US Secrete Service Contractor. Here’s his asinine, misleading, and dismissive “reporting” on Olympics protests:


    I suggest the Tent Village either have nothing to do with this jackass, or, bring our own cameras and pie the douchebag.

    • Bummer. Its always a challenge to figure out how the media is going to portray you, and unfortunately for independent guys like me it gives us a bad name. Being met with suspicion is understandable, but its also unfortunate because it can get in the way of telling a truly compelling and honest story.

  2. I am an American videojournalist, and I recently completed the video I made about the Tent Village during my trip to the Olympics. Please check out the link below, and share widely – the more people that see this, the better!

    Keep up the fight,
