I've been looking around the net searching for those "news" outlets still publishing positive articles and opinion pieces on the Occupy movement.

He's what I've found so far. Please feel free to add to the list.

What I see in common, is that these are all considered progressive outlets.

Don't forget our old pal and co-option threat from the "early" days.

Not technically a news site, but lot's of supportive reports on Occupies all over.

progress (n.) Look up progress at Dictionary.com

early 15c., "a going on, action of walking forward," from O.Fr. progres, from L. progressus (see progression). Figurative sense of "growth, development, advancement to higher stages" is from c.1600. The verb is attested from c.1590 in the lit. sense, c.1600 in the fig. sense.

Dylan Ratigan had a good segment on his show today on "The Leaderless Revolution." His guest was Carne Ross and they talked a lot about Occupy and how it is a non-political movement working from outside the current system to change it altogether, not to reform it. Here's a link to it:

Excellent link and further to shooz's 'APB' for "progressive" websites :

Thank you for this link, I watch so little “news” anymore, nice to see some people talking who at least seem to see the problem, how we got here is not so mysterious many millions were spent o make sure we think about things in certain ways. This was made clear to me talking to people back in my home town over the years visiting from time to time and seeing how their love of guns seem to grow out of no where. There people I knew as a child wouldn’t think for a minute about spending $400 on a worthless handgun, maybe a shotgun, but $800? By 2000, a handgun was like something essential, in that area. These people did not get these ideals from their parents, certainly not my brother, but there they were, instill into them like flavor into a cigarette. This is true also of the revolution, freedom, government and most important of all liberal. They have been controlling the emotions for around thirty years I’d say, and they have gotten quite a sweat worked up now. The problem with this plan by the 1%/right wing, is that the animal you create can be turned against you, that’s what I purpose we do, the time is right, the tool is there, but if our leaders fear co-option we may not do it.
