Occupy Wall Street protests have continued for the last four weeks and are now expanding to large cities across the country with no sign of stopping.
These protests have expanded to a variety of cities, including Tampa, Denver, and San Diego, just to name a few.
As the protests expand, so does their news coverage. Seven percent of the nation's news coverage was on about the protests through the second week of October, said New York Times.
The protesters that remain in New York, where the protests began, have encountered issues with the city over sanitation problems. The protesters cleaned the park themselves in order to keep police from removing them to take care of the issue, said CNN.
Protesters have lacked unity on purpose and desired changes through their protests, however, they are unified in their intentions to remain protesting for at least a few months, said CNN.
