Three weeks ago, a group of about 5,000 people kicked off the Occupy Wall Street movement. It began as an idea put forth by AdBusters magazine, but few could have guessed that its anti-government, anti-corporate message would resonate so deeply with so many Americans. But how is Occupy Wall Street evolving? How does it compare with the Tea Party? And how long will people occupy Wall Street and Salt Lake City? A panel of guests joins Doug on Monday to talk about the occupation movement.
