Stephen Colbert Suggests Corporate-Sponsored Protests

Print comment Post Comments
Last night, the Colbert Report ran a segment on the changing tactics of the Occupy Wall Street movement. More specifically, it went into the protester takeover of the NBC (CMCSA) program Law and Order: SVU’s fake OWS encampment -- a story we covered last week.

Colbert then went on to talk about Scott Walker’s recent attempt to pass a law obligating protesters to pay for security and clean-up costs at rallies held in Wisconsin. In his “Tonight’s Word” segment, Stephen proposed an elegant solution: corporate sponsored protests. For example, an OWS tent could double as a billboard for any number of companies. Or, to quote the show, future protests may feature tags like: “This protest of Bank of America (BAC) brought to you by Bank of America.”

The clip is below.
