A timeline of the movement, from February to today.

Did Mike Bloomberg accidentally save the Occupy movement? In the early hours of Tuesday, when the NYPD started to break up the camp at Zuccotti Park, polling showed that the anti-Wall Street protesters were slipping a bit. Coverage of their actions was slipping, lost in the haze of Herman Cain stories, Demi Moore marital decisions, and What Joe Paterno Knew. By Tuesday morning, cable news networks were covering the Occupiers with news choppers. Here's what the movement's been doing while you were (and weren't) looking.

Elsewhere in Slate, Raymond Vasvari looks at what the battle over Zucotti Park can teach us about the First Amendment, and David Weigel talks to  some protesters in D.C. and New York about the park being closed to OWS.
