A look at the day's news, opinions and stories of the protests on Wall Street and beyond


Slate Magazine (Will Oremus): Occupy Wall Street TV ads to air on Fox News

Not content with how the movement has been covered in the mainstream media, Occupy Wall Street supporters are now buying TV ads to get their message out.

Rolling Stone (Matt Taibbi): How I stopped worrying and learned to love the OWS protests

I have a confession to make. At first, I misunderstood Occupy Wall Street. The first few times I went down to Zuccotti Park, I came away with mixed feelings…But I'm beginning to see another angle. Occupy Wall Street was always about something much bigger than a movement against big banks and modern finance. It's about providing a forum for people to show how tired they are not just of Wall Street, but everything.

The Washington Post (Elizabeth Flock): Occupy the Highway: From NYC to DC

More than 20 protesters have decided to take the 200 mile, two-week-long trek from Zuccotti Park in New York to Washington’s McPherson Square.

NY Daily News (Erin Einhorn, Matt Lysiak): Bloomberg: OWS protesters not noticeable one block away

Despite ongoing gripes from lower Manhattan residents and businesses, Mayor Bloomberg insisted Wednesday that problems from Occupy Wall Streeters are largely limited to the area right around Zuccotti Park.

Huffington Post (Robyn Gee): Who’s behind it? Tracing the origins of the 99 percent movement

"We are the 99 percent" is now a household phrase. Once the Occupy Wall Street movement gained steam, the slogan was everywhere: in headlines, embedded in our social networks and plastered on our sidewalks. But where did the phrase come from? And how did it catch on?

Village Voice Blog (Nick Pinto): OWS poses branding problem for ‘other 98 percent’

​No one is happier than Andrew Boyd that Occupy Wall Street has survived, grown, and spread around the world. As the co-founder of a campaign that calls attention to the vast and growing economic inequality in America, Boyd is thrilled to see protesters in New York and across the country taking to the streets, organizing around the slogan that has quickly become one of the movement's most powerful signatures: "We are the 99 percent."

Time Blog (Michael Scherer): Van Jones’ hopes (and fears) for Occupy Wall Street

A few weeks back, Oakland Police fired non-lethal projectiles and teargas into a crowd of Occupy protesters, and the former Obama Administration official Van Jones reacted with quick condemnation. “Let us be clear: there is no justification for the use of violence against a non-violent protest,” he wrote with a colleague on Huffington Post. “The police department and the mayor should apologize for an inexcusable use of excessive force.”

Huffington Post (Paul Loeb): From Occupy Wall Street to occupy the neighborhoods

The Occupy movement has done something amazing, getting Americans to start questioning our economic divides. It's created spaces for people to come together, voice their discontents and dreams, creatively challenge destructive greed. It's created powerful political theater, engaged community, an alternative to silence and powerlessness.

Huffington Post (Lila Shapiro): Zuccotti Park’s burgeoning micro-neighborhoods may indicate deeper divisions

Protesters at Occupy Wall Street insist that they are a completely leaderless movement with a purely horizontal structure. But where some see simple diversity -- a self-proclaimed goal of OWS -- others see the creep of an insidious hierarchy, most clearly seen in the emerging micro-neighborhoods in Zuccotti Park.

Village Voice Blog (Rosie Gray): EMT injured while breaking up fight at Occupy Wall Street

​Last night at Zuccotti Park, an EMT broke his leg responding to a fight and had to be taken away to in an ambulance. This was one of four fights that required security's attention at the park between 10:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. The offender in the fight that injured the EMT was also taken away in an ambulance.

CBS News (AP): Latest developments in the Occupy protests

Flanked by police scooters, about two dozen Occupy Wall Street protesters started a two-week walk from New York to Washington on Wednesday.
