I am a very avid supporter! I am noticing one thing, the news the news is what sells us everything! From homes to loans! They also show the 99% what we are "supposed" to be concerned with. Now up until roughly an hour ago the occupy movement was displayed as public news on google news. Now it's no where to be found. Well at least not anywhere worth looking. So this brings me to my point if you let the news agencies who are mostly 1%ers, move the spot light the cause will quickly be lost. This movement has been thrown in the faces of other countries now they are becoming corageous enough to stand and be counted. If we let this just vanish we will let everyone down! Keep it going! Make waves and let them all know our time is now.

We have to make a spectacle in order for the news to cover us. Something big and productive.

YES - I've been asking all media outlets I follow - WHERE'S THE COVERAGE on the occupy movement. Don't get discouraged by what the LOCAL news is doing - because Int'l news IS following. I had to find out this was going on a couple of weeks ago from a friend in the UK.

I'm a big supporter of local action. I think the Occupy movement can do more in that regard, and that such actions, even small ones, can be channeled into media coverage. Heck, I'd volunteer right away for an Occupy [Podunk] car wash or bake sale or highway cleanup or charity walk/marathon, and a hundred little actions like that can do a lot to raise awareness. It's tiny, but it's positive PR if we make it happen. Making sure to contact the right media outlets every single time could make it more meaningful. That means local papers and indy rags as well as the nearest Fox/MSNBC/ABC news outlet and YouTube.
