Occupy Denver may not be among the largest of the Occupy Wall Street spinoffs, but increasing violence and the growing number of arrests have gotten the national media's attention. Witness the appearance last night on Countdown with Keith Olbermann by Occupy Denver's Jeannie Hartley. One of the group's most active tweeters, Hartley found Olbermann to be a most sympathetic interviewer -- hardly the rule among national media figures.
