Live-blogging OWS daily since October 1. Email: email@example.com. All times ET. My new e-book is "40 Days That Shook the World: From Occupy Wall St. to Occupy Everywhere." My very OWS-relevant "The Campaign of the Century" has just been re-issued, my other books here.
7:30 Video of OWS protest that halted foreclosure auction in NY today–with 35 arrests.
7:10 Americans United for Change: Did Romney break the law by failing to disclose 23 investments, including 11 offshore? Will have link later.
7:05 Apparently Occupy Chicagp somewhat or very peeved that AdBusters called for 50,000 turnout in that city in May for G8 without, allegedly, you knoww, running it past them or whatever. GA to debate it tonight, we hear.
5:20 Liberal media? Actually, coverage of Keystone XL was tilted in favor of the thing.
5:10 Ron Christie, GOP hack consultant, on "Hardball" just now tried to defend Tea Party by claiming media bias in not focusing on "Occupy people raping" people. Show had started on hysterical note when Chris Matthews turned to guest on set and introduced him as Dana Milbank–when it was a Dem strategist. Booking change? Whoops.
3:50 @JohnKnefel on NY "blockade" reports: "To recap: I counted 26 arrests. All sources say auction is shut down, but cops lie so I don’t know for sure." Go to his feed to catch up. Foreclosure auction apparently shut down.
2:30 A German site is first to have full credits for upcoming Springsteen album, with track by track listings–or so they say. Does look legit. Confirms our early reports on very OWS-friendly, as you can see just from song titles and what’s come out before. Tom Morello on a couple of cuts, Clarence Clemons on one.
1:40 An Iraq Vet’s Journey: From Wall St. to OWS, via The Nation.
1:15 A couple days ago we brought you first new of an Occupy album for USA (proceeds to OWS) featuring dozens of stars and semi-stars, from Debbie Harry and Jackson Browne to Tom Morello, Joseph Arthur and Yoko Ono (and Michael Moore). Now we’ve got the album cover at left, done by famed illustrator Robert Grossman.
