I don't know that anyone said that. The entire movement isn't comprised of the best and brightest, I can tell you that merely through the law of averages applied to the size of the crowd. That doesn't mean there isn't a coherent center behind it all, another valid side to this story the media isn't telling-and is probably skewing for ratings and/or profit.
The people being protested own the media, have ties to it, or know people in the business. What do you think the mainstream media is going to say? Come on, you've got a fairly good head on your shoulders. There's no way you can honestly believe that everything the television spouts is the truth.
