New York mayor Michael Bloomberg has been against the Occupy Wall Street movement from the beginning. On his weekly radio broadcast, Bloomberg has made numerous misleading remarks about the sentiment and ideas behind Occupy Wall Street.

"The protesters are protesting against people who make $40- to 50,000 a year and are struggling to make ends meet,” he said on September 30th. The following week he claimed that the occupiers were trying to push the banks out of New York City.
