Does the Media Push the market or does the Market push the media?Submitted by xso_61671 on Sun, 02/17/2008 - 03:18
Do you think that the media is pushing it's ideas upon the public, or do you think they are catering to the demand of the market?
For example does the media not report on Ron Paul because they choose to push a private agenda, or does the market demand they talk more to the other candidates.
If any of us was a channel director on youtube, for example, would we not produce video's which would appeal to the widest audience? You may have the most relavent point to get across on your channel, you may have the best intentions in mind. Yet if there is no market (Nobody clicks your channel) then you would be out of business. Now would that force you to change your contents to the markets demand, would you not post a picture of a girl in a bikinni just to get hits, regardless of the superficial nature of a video like that?
Seeing the turn out at the poles and looking at the numbers objectivley, is the media not reporting on paul because of the low market numbers?
As a company who's purpose is profit does it not make sense they would want to reach the largest audience and therefore cater to the other candidates with the larger crowds?
The Media's purpose is not to be fair, it is to make profit.
That being said, if the market pushes the media than we need not concentrate on perswaying the media attention, but rather the markets. If we create a large enough market than I believe the media has no choice but to follow suite. As the media follows the marke, otherwise goes out of business.
Should we not stream line our efforts? Instead of just marching on DC should we not start using our base to recruit others, as well as lobby congress across the land? Should we not focus more on exposing legislation like the patriot act and the military commisions act? Posse comotatus and habeous corpus?
Concentrate our effort on dislodging the newest and least entrenched corruptions first. The Fed and the other departments have been engrained into the peoples sense of the country. Making it Harder to dislodge these obstacles as effectivley as attacking the newer more obtrusive laws.
Im sure If the Paulites were to band together by concentrating on one particular legislation, and work vehemently. Could you imagine if we together got one of these dangerous laws repealed? Our numbers would only grow as they do when any army has a victory. Somthing to rally behind.
We can't look at this rEVOLution in small terms, we must work together in a concerted effort or we are simply ineffective, unorganized and usless. Talking on the internet and waiving signs is one thing, striking tyrannical laws at the heart is the real battle.
In order to change the market we must have victories in some shape or form. The money bombs were victories, but those were just battles, we are fightin a war.
So shape up or ship out, do you really think there is no competition out there? As we speak, yes, right now there are men working together to push the oligarchy they so feverishly and persistantly pursue. If there army is stronger, more organized, more effective? Well you do the math, do you wonder why it seems they always win?
Be real about your prospects and goals, instead of just blaming everyone else for the lack of interest, make it interesting. Shape your strategy, your goals, become effective in more than just one way, attacking legislation, at the same time you are promoting Ron Paul. Work hard, work tirlessley and maybe just maybe the market will shift our way. If you fail to see it for what it really is than this is all just a pipedream.
Im am well aware of the influences of rogue elements of this goverment, but this is a free country and if the market they created flows as they wish, it will be. You want change, well be ready to compete.
