The medium is the message: Occupy Wall Street protesters march through New York's financial district toward the stock exchange. Photograph: Jessica Rinaldi/Reuters The Occupy Wall Street movement has challenged the standard narrative of recent times. Contrary to the world view they've been promoting for so long, politicians and traditional media organisations are beginning to grasp the existence of a compelling alternative: that democracy cannot endure in a society designed by and operated almost solely for the benefit of the rich and powerful.
The Stone is a forum for contemporary philosophers on issues both timely and timeless. When I flew out from the San Francisco airport last October, we crossed above the ports that Occupy Oakland helped shut down, and arrived in Germany to be met by traffic caused by Occupy Berlin protestors. But the movement has not only transformed public space, it has transformed the public discourse as well. Occupy. It is now nearly impossible to hear the word and not think of the Occupy movement. Even as distinguished an expert as the lexicographer and columnist Ben Zimmer admitted as much this week: “occupy,” he said, is the odds-on favorite to be chosen as the American Dialect Society’s Word of the Year.
“The bonus system has gone beyond a means of rewarding talent and is now Wall Street’s primary business,” the newspaper editorial stated , adding: “Institutions take huge gambles because the short-term returns are a rationale for their rich payouts. But even when the consequences of their risky behavior come back to haunt them, they still pay huge bonuses.” Well thought and well put, but for one thing: If you were looking for bonus excess despite miserable operations, the best recent example I can think of is , which owns USA Today. The week before the editorial ran, Craig A. Dubow resigned as Gannett’s chief executive.
The protest movement is appropriating the names and logos of corporate-owned publications. Is it copyright infringement or satire? Courtesy of Scott Johnson Scott Johnson had published only two issues of his Occupied Oakland Tribune when he received a cease and desist order from The Oakland Tribune 's parent company, the Bay Area News Group.
Occupy Wall Street’s NYC Twitter account posted a photo Monday night of what appears to be a newsletter bearing a striking resemblance to Metro newspaper. In fact, protesters named their paper “Metroccupied.” “Sneak preview of the @Metroccupied , premiering tomorrow in a station near you,” Occupy Wall Street tweeted with the photo. Justin Wedes, an OWS media working group member, said the paper has been in the works for weeks. He said 5,000 copies will be distributed Tuesday.
In two short months the Occupy movement has captured the popular imagination, used the people's mic to give voice to the long-ignored, and established collective action as the pathway to a better world. In Chicago, tens of thousands have occupied--marching, sitting in, assembling and taking the spirit of the movement to their schools and workplaces. But until now, the movement hasn't had an independent media outlet to represent it. Our project is the Occupied Chicago Tribune , a four-page broadsheet newspaper with an anticipated first issue print run of 20,000. We aim to bring the movement to the broader public and to provide news and analysis the Occupy movement can use to grow and flourish: reports from the occupation, resources and ways to join, and the stories of the diverse group of Chicagoans who make up the 99 percent.
A newspaper launched by activists from Occupy Chicago and journalists loosely associated with the Occupy movement in Chicago face the possibility of losing the website for their newspaper. The Tribune Company has submitted a complaint to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) to force the transfer of ownership of two domains from those involved in the newspaper to the Tribune. Journalists involved in the newspaper, which is called the Occupied Chicago Tribune , found out the Tribune was going before the Geneva-based WIPO to have the domain transferred last week when they received a solicitation email from a New York law firm. It said the Tribune had filed for a “Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) proceeding” on May 24 because the Tribune believes the Occupy newspaper is using the domain— OccupiedChicagoTribune.org —in “bad faith.”
Peter Bella The Occupied Chicago Tribune is an independent media source for those who do not see their struggles and views represented in the mainstream press. We created this paper to provide an outlet for reporting, commentary and analysis on the growing Occupy movement, its unique application in our city and the struggles of the 99%. Bouyed by the protests around the world and frustrated by popular news sources’ representation of the movement, we are dedicated to honest coverage aimed at spreading the message of, and informing, the Occupy movement. (Occupied Chicago Tribune) CHICAGO , June 5, 2012— A couple of weeks ago I discovered an article I wrote posted in full on another media website under a different title.

Occupy the Web
The Occupy Wall Street protests have spread to cities across the world . Now they're also spreading to banks' websites. A program called Occupy the URL , launched Tuesday, will turn any website into a protest, complete with pop-up photos of Occupy Wall Street protesters.
Matt Ewing , founder of green tech company Rewire Labs , decided on Tuesday the Occupy Wall Street movement needed a technology boost. So he held a San Francisco Hackathon Friday night, aptly named “Occupy the Web, hacking for the 99 percent.” Occupy movements targeting corporate corruption have spread outside of the its Occupy Wall Street origins. Indeed, the day of Ewing’s hackathon over 4,000 people marched in San Francisco under the same Occupy flag. Many have accused the protesters of having no core vales, no unity, but the developers that gathered Friday night disagreed.
