PHOTOS: Anti Fox News "Shut-Up-A-Thon"

Thanks to Julianne for hipping me to the Shut-Up-A-Thon held today outside the Fox News studios on 47th and 6th. Very entertaining event, brought 1000+ highly creative protestors, observed with a sort of bashful bemusement by a few dozen Fox staffers on the other side of the barricades. Rarely have so few been flipped the bird so much by so many.

It got kinda hectic though, a very heavy police presence was crowding everyone into a big pen, but the overflow still kept the whole block completely packed. At one point they started shoving Amy Goodman down the street as she tried to conduct an interview.

There were also numerous cops standing on the side videotaping everyone, one of whom seemed none too happy that I was taking his picture. And down the block was another group of officers with these weird paint-gun thingies, does anyone know the purpose of these? I spoke with them briefly but they didn't seem too keen on discussing it.
