The Occupy movement has captured the imagination of the 99% – and the attention of the 1%.

This blog is dedicated to exploring how the mainstream and alternative media are covering the phenomenon. It is also designed to explore whether Occupy has implications for how journalism could and should change, to better serve the 99%.
