I'm sick of Auntie Beeb lying to us, frustrated with National Propaganda Radio and its cousin, Propaganda Broadcasting System. (I do watch AlJazeera on line, though.) Slick don't cut it for me - I want thoughtful independent content taking on the power voices - free from government or corporate propaganda edited as news - so we'll see about this one. It could become just another liberal wankfest. From lookin' around the site, it's been in the plans for a few years. Geeks who worked for Howard Dean are handling the design for the internet funding plea. Check it out for yerselves: The Real News.
"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was." - Molly Ivins 1944-2007
THIS IS ME...
... I blog from BURLINGTON, VERMONT. I'm a hustler about civic engagement & social action and I'll make publicity against a world that degrades and shames whatever way I can. Joy!
