What do you think of the 99% becoming a major voice in the Media?
Please watch this 3-minute video before answering. Then let me know if you think this can work.
CoffeePartyUSA.com is setting up a Social Media solution to giving the rest of us a voice as loud as the 0.001% and the mega-corporations have through corporate controlled media.
I believe that something has to be done. Here’s just one example of why I think the loss of independent journalism is a threat to the continued existence of democracy and liberty.
In the Wisconsin recall election of GOP Governor Scott Walker, Walker is whining about how unfair it is that “outside forces” and “union bosses and their thugs” are paying to defeat him. All the while, he’s taking money from the Koch Brothers and other non-Wisconsin Billionaires, the US Chamber of Commerce, and Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS PAC. Lots of money. Almost all of his funding is from outside Wisconsin. He’s outspent his opponent Democrat, Tom Barrett, 25 to 1. Nearly all the advertising Walker has run are falsehoods used to smear his opponent. But even his positive advertising is filled with lies. He claims he’s created 30,000 jobs since taking office when the truth is he has seen 30,000 jobs leave the state.
Democracy and Liberty itself are now on the auction block thanks to the 5 Supreme Corporatists and their legislation from the bench.
Since I’ve expressed my opinion in the question details, feel free to express differing views. I just ask that we keep our discussion civil and fact based.
We have some pretty good writers among the Jellies here, and I am sure there are many more outside the Fluther Collective. Who says we can’t be heard? Who thinks that only the multinational corporations owning huge Media conglomerates should be have a national platform from which to push their agenda?
