    Apparently OWS dominated media coverage last week, continuing it's great impact in changing the national dialogue. Awesome!

    HuffPoOccupy Wall Street had its biggest week of media coverage yet, according to a the news coverage index provided by Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism.

    Media analysis from the week of November 14-20 showed that the economy dominated news cycles, taking up 22 percent of coverage. The study notes however, that Occupy Wall Street coverage made up a majority of that coverage.

    The week before, total coverage of the protests accounted for only 1 percent of news stories. According to the index, clashes between protesters, police forces, and government officials caused the spike in media coverage to occur. From New York City's Mayor Bloomberg ordering protesters to clear Zuccotti Park, to campus police forces repeatedly pepper spraying peaceful demonstrators at UC Davis, Occupy Wall Street was a major story in last week's news cycle.

    Additionally, members of the press became targets of police last week when they were forcibly removed and even arrested while attempting to cover Zuccotti Park being rid of protesters.

    I dont see how this is a win, media coverage =/ win my friend. When OJ's trial was going on, it had a lot of media coverage, did OJ win?

    Well, he kinda did but not because of the media coverage.

    The win is how OWS is changing the national dialogue in the media. The number of references to "income inequality" have quadrupled since OWS started. Similarly, the crack down on the protests is bringing to light the militarization of our police force since 9/11 and how much the PATRIOT Act has removed our basic civil rights.

    I dont see what the PATRIOT act has to do with this? Also, many individuals support the police force as OWS is nothing but children running around thinking they are making a difference by taking a crap in the street. If they want to get treated like people, they best start acting like people.

    Chainers, sweetie, I know you just post to be a shit disturber, but you really should have a passing understanding of things you comment on.

    And, people's civil and human rights do not disappear because they are uncouth and no OWS protester has taken a shit in public. Keep up on the debunked lies of the right.

    No one's rights have disappeared. People have a right to protest, they do not have a right to disrupt peoples day to day lives. Their is a difference. all thought I think you need at least half of a brain to figure out what that difference is really...
