MoveOn.org Adds To Growing National Attention On Oakland

Oct. 27, 2011 | First, there was a sanctimonious special comment from Keith Olbermann (VIDEO) calling for Oakland Mayor Jean Quan to resign after police quelled Occupy Oakland protesters with tear gas. Jon Stewart then added his humorous take along with talking trash about the Oakland A's (VIDEO). The national attention is on Oakland. Where the f**k is Jesse Jackson, Jane Fonda and this media-starved guy from Jimmy Kimmel?

Today, MoveOn.org got in on the action after releasing an ad to run in the Bay Area over the next few days. The minute-long spot harshly focuses on Quan's response to the protesters last Tuesday night.
