We need to insert ourselves as forcibly as possible into every news media. Every time there's to be a politician addressing the press, we need to get there. This will likely fall primarily on Occupy DC, but if we can force ourselves into live television every possible time the politicians talk to the press out in public, we should be there.

Personally, I'd start with getting prepared for the next time Speaker Boehner is going to be talking to the press with his cronies behind him, and hitting other politicians' press meetings from there. "Hey, Boehner, Where Are The Jobs?" and "Where's That Trickledown?" should be sufficient chants, if you ask me. Even if we can't get right into the way of the cameras, we need to be loud as possible and force them to hear us.

I really want to see if that orange can blush. Has this been done yet? Has this been attempted? Did I just miss the memo or is this a possible new avenue to get the attention this movement deserves?

Better to give the press something to talk about that's more interesting than chin-waggin politicians or half-baked ideas like port shut downs.
