CNN's pre-debate coverage Tuesday night came with a whole host of unexpected guests -- namely a crowd of local "Occupy Las Vegas" protesters spreading their anti-Wall Street message.
They nearly shouted down "Out Front" host Erin Burnett with their chanting as she taped her show. At times Burnett sounded slightly taken aback at the high level of "Occupy" revelry.
"We're seeing the American system in full swing," Burnett said over chants of "Banks got bailed out, we got sold out!"
CNN's Wolf Blitzer added, "Occupy Las Vegas, that’s what they’re doing! Protesting, which is their right.”
"That's right, it absolutely is," Burnett said dryly. "It's nice to see all the different things they're talking about here."
