5:35 Amy Goodman (fresh from big NYT story today) now interviewing Egyptian activist @AsmaaMahfouz at Zuccott, where she is speaking, here is picture.
5:25 The always amusing Sen. Orrin "Escape" Hatch hits OWS, you can read or watch it here. "I am very concerned that they don’t seem to have any real agenda other than causing problems."
5:05 Yikes: In case you thought Rick Perry’s Texas was quiet, breaking now is news that 20 from OccupyDallas arrested this afternoon in sitdown at JP MorganChase Tower. Follow link for great photo showing this: "With handkerchiefs tied across the front of their faces, dozens sat in front of the building." TV station promises video soon.
5:00 New Pew Survey finds support still fairly good for OWS, especially vs. Tea Party. For OWS it is 39% favorable and 35% against, with Tea Party at 32% up and 44% down. And here’s a key: The backing for OWS soars to 60% among those following news about them closely. And the pro-OWS numbers vs. Tea Party even better among Independents. "About half of Democrats (52%) – and 62% of liberal Democrats – say they support the Occupy Wall Street movement. Among Republicans, 19% say they support the anti-Wall Street protests, while more than half (55%) oppose them."
