Action Alert: Where Is the Coverage of Occupy Wall Street?

The same corporate media that will rush to cover the latest burp from Tea Party protesters seem strikingly uninterested in demonstrators camped out in Manhattan’s financial district, protesting the corporate takeover of U.S. politics. Please see FAIR’s latest Action Alert (9/22/11) to call on the broadcast TV networks to pay attention to this activism.

You can use the comments thread for this blog post to leave copies of your messages to the networks or to comment on the alert.
