This morning, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield of Ben & Jerry’s fame appeared on CNN American Morning to explain their support for Occupy Wall Street. While the CNN hosts asked them why they would support a movement when they are personally so financially successful, the two explained that they want public policy to serve the “majority of the country” rather than just “the elite.” The last question American Morning asked the two is what they would call an Occupy Wall Street-themed flavor. “Choccupy?” suggested Ben Cohen.
