    If it remains at its current levels for several more days, coverage of the Wall Street protests could surpass that given to the Tea Party rallies in April and May 2009.

    Unlike the Wall Street protests, however, the Tea Party rallies were a one-day event, and coverage declined thereafter, to an average of 215 media hits per day over the three-week period from April 15 to May 5, 2009.

    By contrast, the Occupy Wall Street protests have been covered in an average of 144 articles per day in the three weeks of their existence. In the aggregate, this is about two-thirds as much coverage as the Tea Party protests received.

    Coverage of the Wall Street protests continues to increase, however, and could surpass that given to the Tea Party rallies in April and May 2009 if it remains at its current levels…. for several more days.

    And we’re just getting ramped up on Day 21, for the long haul; we’ll be occupying through the winter.

    If you’re interested in watching the gorth of OWS events (internationally) this site is pretty good: http://www.occupytogether.org/actions/

    You make a good point above in your vid. This should all change. Seems the #OWS “Dress for Success” programs are finally getting off the ground. The organization’s “Division of Media Wardrobes” has already been working on media makeover tips for “the right protest look”… you know, something that works better for mainstream media. Classier.

    Proof that OWS department heads have taken it to heart and mean business on this topic? It’s here on youtube: http://youtu.be/Aqa78OQyp3Y

    Enjoy.
