Inside the Beltway
Question of the Day
“It’s time for the Obama administration to lead again by requiring the Department of Justice to provide those exact same protections for peaceful protesters here in the United States of America.”
The Occupy Wall Street protesters continue to grapple with entrepreneurs seeking to trademark and market their name. Meanwhile, the movement itself has invaded the media landscape with the “Occupied Wall Street Journal,” organized by Occupy Wall Street Media, billed as a “public art project in N.Y. by the 99 percent.”
There’s money. With 1,700 “backers” and $76,000 in donations, the group has managed to print three editions so far, with headlines reading, “This rebellion will not stop” and “Principles of solidarity.” Organizers anticipate a national version, with stringent ideals intact:
“Occupy Wall Street Media is not the ‘official’ media of the occupation - there is no official media! This is one attempt by a group of journalists who support the occupation to offer a way for the general public to hear the stories, perspectives and ideas from inside the movement. We think the more voices, ideas and media the better,” proclaims a public statement of intent.
