Occupy Wall Street and its many spinoffs may be on its way to getting at least one billboard. EpicStep will donate a billboard if at least 20,000 people go online and vote for a design and a city to place it in.

Colorado’s Rep. Coffman: In the district and off the farm

Colorado Sixth District Congressman Mike Coffman is making national headlines for trotting out a Glenn Beck-style Obama conspiracy theory on Denver talk radio. He said the president is secretly working to grant citizenship to millions of undocumented residents who will return the favor by voting for Obama next November. That's great radio except, as Colorado media watchdogger Jason Salzman points out, illegal residents can't become citizens until they're legal residents, and none of that could happen for any of them by anywhere close to Election Day. More than that, the theory dovetailed with a bill Coffman recently sponsored to strip languages other than English from voter ballots, the two taken together making Coffman seem provocatively anti-Latino. The "undocumented resident voter" theory isn't the only out-there bit Coffman has delivered lately. His handlers might have pulled in the reins after the loose nuggets he tossed out at a GOP fundraiser in Denver last week.

After debuting Sunday in Monrovia, California, it heads straight to DVD.

Glenn Beck ends speculation, cancels Fox News show

Ending increasing speculation about the fate of his controversial daily show at Fox News, Glenn Beck announced Wednesday that he was ending his three-year run. The show will go off the air "later this year" according to a release. It will no doubt continue to rivet millions of Americans, light up the blogosphere and provide talk-show hosts with a long list of material for satire each day until then.

Pro-labor Wisconsin video roundup: Tony Schultz and Stephen King

The hundred-thousand-plus crowd that filled downtown Madison, Wisconsin, this weekend is being touted as an answer to the Tea Party rallies that cropped up around the country last year.
