#OccupyWhat? #OccupyWHO?


In my previous post I cited an ABC news article that puts the number of #OccupyWallStreet solidarity rally cities at 25. The real count, as I was just informed*, is somewhat different.

According to OccupyTogether, the current count stands at 68:

Albuquerque, NM  |  Allentown, PA  |  Athens, GA  |  Atlanta, GA  |  Asheville, NC  |  Austin, TX  |  Baltimore, MD  |   Boston, MA  |  Buffalo, NY  |  Burlington, VT |  Berkeley, CA  |  Charlotte, NC  |  Chattanooga, TN  |  Chicago, IL  |  Cincinnati, OH  |  Cleveland, OH  |  Colorado Springs, CO  |  Dallas, TX  |  Dayton, OH  |  Denver, CO  |  Elkhart, IN  |  Eureka, CA  |  Findlay, OH  |  Flagstaff, AZ  |  Grand Rapids, MI  |  Honolulu, HI  |  Houston, TX  |  Idaho Falls, ID  |  Indianapolis, IN  |  Inland Empire, CA  |  Ithica, NY  |  Jacksonville, FL  |  Kansas City, MO  |  Lexington, KY  |  Lawrence, KS  |  Los Angeles, CA  |  Las Vegas, NV  |  Louisville, KY  |  Madison, WI  |  Maui, HI  |  Miami, FL  |  Minneapolis, MN  |  Missoula, MT  |  Mcallen, TX  |  Nashville, TN  |  New York City, NY  |  Norfolk, VA  |  Northhampton, MA  |  Ocala, FL  |  Philadelphia, PA  |  Portland, ME  |  Portland, OR  |  Riverside, CA  |  Salt Lake City, UT  |  San Diego, CA  |  San Jose, CA  |  San Francisco, CA  |  Santa Fe, NM  |  Sarasota, FL  |  Seattle, WA  |  St. Louis, MO  |  South Bend, IN  |  Syracuse, NY  |  Tampa, FL  |  Trenton, NJ  |  Washing D.C.  |  Wichita, KS  |  Winston-Salem, NC

Why would ABC so dramatically underreport these rallies?



It's strange - similar to NPR's initial decision that #OccupyWallStreet wasn't a story..

Hmm.
