Read Turnstyle News’ Full Occupy Wall Street Coverage

There is a surplus of media coming out of the Occupy Wall Street movement whether from journalists, participants and even satirists like Jon Stewart. Here is a distillation of some notable videos, some of which are flying under the radar of viral distinction.

The above video is simply a beautifully shot vignette of Occupy Wall Street protesting, taken during last night’s swell of supporters in New York by Joshua Paul Johnson.

In this video below, one journalist appears to get roughed up by baton-carrying police trying to keep protesters behind a partition. Warning: expletives at :55 in.

This video offers more context to the above video, showing an NYPD officer swinging and hitting OWS protesters.

This reporter asks why African Americans and Latinos are not numerous at OWS. (It is worth noting, I noticed a high ratio of Latinos at Occupy L.A. and a fair amount of African Americans–Occupy L.A. is a generally diverse group, I observed.)

Fast forward to 1:09 in to this news package to see one young boy’s view of why he is participating.

Not only to end this post on a funny note, but here Jon Stewart really seems to nail the foibles of media coverage and OWS supporters themselves.
