Did Occupy the Rose Parade Get Air?

by nobody Tuesday, Jan. 03, 2012 at 4:44 PM

Did anyone see OTRP on TV?

I was stuck at home sick, and watched the parade end on KTLA, but didn't see Occupy. It was messed up! But there were a half dozen active internet streams embedded in the march, which looked pretty big.

Crowd counts range from 2,000 to 5,000.

So the main broadcast in LA seems to have deliberately cut to video rather than allow some post-parade march get any air time. How lame. But what do you expect from KTLA, which has a long history of being lame (except for Tom Hatten's old Popeye show).

A google search for "occupy the rose parade" turns up 675,000 hits. Google News turns up 671 hits.

44,800 hits on yahoo, and 228 in yahoo news.

44,900 hits on bing, and 21 in bing news. Bing is part of Microsoft, a total 1% corporation. And bill gates is now trying to "profitize" the free public schools.

In comparison, "occupy wall street" on google news turned up 436,000,000 hits, and on news, 10,200. (Note that the Pasadena event is probably counted in the 436 million.)

"rose parade" +2012 turned up 58.3 million hits. Adding +"occupy" turned up 13.2 million hits. That means that Occupy was mentioned along with the Rose Parade in 22.6% of hits. It also came up in the top news story, by the LA Times.

"rose parade" +2012 +"martinez" turned up 377,000 hits. JR Martinez, an actor, was the Grand Marshall. I'm feeling kinda sad for the guy.

Local Press did show lots OTRP

by one of many Wednesday, Jan. 04, 2012 at 3:50 PM

google as more comes up and then maybe COMMENT on those local newspapers internet sites about your version vs. the assumed negative that some think/hope are the American Majority...but may not be...

the tendency to demean, dismiss, and negativize the Occupiers and protests are prevalent but the coverage is till strong in many surprising places....

Sunday LA TIMES had 2 main reporters writing about Occupy issues -articles that are worth copying, reading or well as these sites below on net . One in Business section too.


see San Gabriel Valley News article 1/2/12 for great Photo Gallery showing Occupy banner in action…

Rose PARADE pix great =

3000 protestors = w/ article same reporter HAS VIDEO

article re meeting at church before protest

and criticism of organizer Tottam - with video

and article by Brian Charles[who wrote all 3 stories for same paper [ - here he’s defaming Peter Tottham ] =

and see their Home page at SGVT for other 2 articles with more balanced descript “3000 protestors…”

LA Times article HAS VIDEO,0,5463510.story

Pasadena Star News article re protesters
same article same reporter syndicated as San Gabriel V N ?

Dec 19/11 Pasadena Star News article

says Cornel West’s .... “West's endorsement came as a surprise to Occupy the Rose Parade organizer Aaron Murphy, who was at All Saints for West's speech. "I was really surprised by his vision that to really be a Christian, one must support movements like Occupy," Murphy said. "

and see on Wiki too =


COMMERCIAL repeated theme and comicbook characters

MILITARIZED dressed YOUTH in "marching" bands
see the military uniforms of prior generations for facimilies

USING THE physical beauty of young women mostly to promote commercial institutions and products for profit in beauty 'pageants' and competition to be a celebrity and get fame for money.

and promoting the so-called-non-profits, the banks, the business hoping to cash in on the parade global visibility
for getting more $$$$, more customers, more P.R.

and to give those worn out after Dec 31-Jan 1st hangover a place to sit safetly watching TV with accompanying loud commercials

what's new here ?

the OCCUPY group,
size is not the important aspect but the great images,

the efforts and work in making the displays,

and the follow up WE ALL WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE in being given attention

because of what WE SAY AND ADDRESS that politics corporations and businesses and regulators want to ignore, dismiss, hide and avoid !

Fox actually had more coverage....

by Everyday Person Friday, Jan. 06, 2012 at 10:51 AM

One of the participants tells me that Fox actually devoted more time to the Occupy portion than other major networks and was the only one to actually show an interview with a protester. I'm told KTLA had a segment in its evening news but said the demonstrators were met mostly by boos and that a lot of the applause went to the police.

That's contrary to what participants have been telling me, and when I followed the parade some years ago with an anti-war banner, the crowds were mostly supportive.
