Occupy Wall Street will soon begin running a television ad of its own. The ad features a very diverse group of protesters speaking directly into the camera what they hope the occupy movement will achieve.

After supporters donated to an ad campaign last month, the Occupy ad will be airing on television this coming weekend. Now millions of Americans that are upset with Wall Street will get a look at the protesters, and find out how they can donate to Occupy Wall Street.

More than 100 commercial spots have been paid for, and are scheduled to run Saturday through Monday on the following channels and programs:

"Bloomberg Business TV (nationally) as well as ESPN, CBS Sports, History International, Outdoor Channel, Gayle King Show, Grey’s Anatomy and Friends (on DISH network, Direct TV and Verizon Fios) will all be running the commercial. It is expected to air on Fox News seven times."

I wouldn't mention this to the Fox News hosts...let it be a big surprise.

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
