    The rise of new media

    The right has it's own bubble in America. It is full stop propaganda but what about everyone else?

    Most of mainstream media is incredibly corporatist and neutral. They try to draw a middle ground and that drags the perspective far off to the right since the right in the US is so globally out of perspective. For example Bernie Sanders gets painted as a radical by the right but in reality he would be just another centrist politician in most other western countries. This is a great watch....

    New to whom?

    Rising?
    Really.

    New/Alternative/Different media has been around forever -
    Yet, some innocents are just taking notice and consider their newly founded [and naive] revelations to be original and earth shaking.

    That's quite an oxymoron. Mainstream media is controlled by a crony capitalist blend of corrupt government and corrupt big business similar to the US revolving doors situation (seems to be the norm in so many countries nowadays; certainly the UK and EU are similar, as is Korea...).

    He's centre-left, as is Chomsky, but I agree that claiming them to be radicals is ridiculous and just narrows the political discourse space.
    How do I post these pictures???

    What did I ever say otherwise in this thread? You did read it before spouting that right?
