Originally titled: OM/Big Media Temper Tantrum Thread
Please post in this thread examples and material as well as your comments related to large information sources abusing their very important position to the detriment of the greater good.
Much of what gets posted on the DP contributes to the perception that the Old Media, which is to say the PTB controlled media, is the center of the Universe and a key to our salvation.
The OM, fortunately for our movement, is rapidly losing its grip on being the center of the universe. Let us not help it to remain relevant.
Please place all OM bursts of temper and attempts to control thought here, or at least in one place, to properly demonstrate our contempt for their trash and to hasten their demise.
The very concept of the OM is in opposition to the concept of our movement-OM is centralized information control, we are about de-centralization of control.
The OM is not an important key to our salvation, key to the success of our movement. The OM is and always will be against us.
Weakening the OM is key to the success of our movement. Think about that. If there was no OM, no centrally controlled and dominant source of information that limits discourse to a very narrow and self-serving point of view, wouldn't the people we are trying to reach be more likely to at least hear our views with a more open mind?
I have no doubt that the weaker the OM gets the stronger our movement will become, the fairer hearing our ideas will receive. Please give some thought to things we can do to weaken the OM and how we can get our fellow citizens to have absolutely no trust in their truth twisting and narrow interest serving product.
