Today we are launching a new signature program, *Occupy the Media* at 8 p.m. ET/7 CT/5 PT. The show will amplify the messages, ideas, and protest actions of the 99 percent, all in an interactive format. *Occupy the Media* is designed to be a conversation*, and has several “mic check” segments that will highlight viewers’ tweets, posts to Facebook, and questions. Viewers can also call us to actively engage with the program.
You can tune in by visiting us online at www.freespeech.org, at Dish Network Channel 9415 or DirecTV Channel 348. *Here are three simple ways to participate in our premiere episode:*
