I’m beginning to think that Gov. Scott Walker and his mob might be awfully similar to Middle Eastern despots! Someone or some folks may have performed a denial of service, (i.e hacked) the Buffalo Beast website.
The Buffalo Beast website seems to be suffering from traffic overload, causing many to see this message: “Error establishing a database connection.” Some pages also say, “The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.”
It’s not the first time the Web has made the news in the Wisconsin protests. A pro-union website was blocked at the Capitol Building in Madison.
The Buffalo Beast was founded in 2002 as an alternative biweekly newspaper in Buffalo, N.Y. It became an online-only news operation in 2009.
