People Powered Media Mobilizes Masses While Mass Media Remains Silent

If we continue to build the independent, people-powered media, greater numbers of people will build up immunity to the destructive misinformation of corporate media.

In the last week there were two major examples of how people-powered media can educate and mobilize people even if the mass corporate media does not report on an issue. We now have the ability to educate each other and tell our narrative of what is occurring. The movement is not dependent on the corporate media.

We are in the midst of an era of media transition. The corporate media is facing tremendous financial, employee and audience challenges. At the root of their problem is credibility.  In 2004, Gallup reported that “39% currently say they have ‘not very much’ confidence in the media’s accuracy and fairness, while 16% say they have ‘none at all.’” Gallup reported this was the lowest credibility rating in three decades.  But, the decline continued and by 2012 Gallup reported that distrust of the media had risen by 5% to 60% having little or no trust in the media – a new record.  A 2013 Gallup poll found only 1 in 4 Americans trust television or newspaper news.

And Now for the REAL News: 80,000 March on Raleigh NC Feb 8th

Yes, 80,000 people from 32 states let the government know they aren’t happy—and the lamestream media ignored it.

There’s only one reason corporate media ignores events like this. They don’t want us to know. Saying nothing, however, is the same as airing it with a wicked spin. It’s all designed to carefully craft a reality of their choosing for the automatons; to support the rogue federal government.

Popular Resistance Newsletter – People-Powered Media Beats Corporate Media

We are in the midst of an era of media transition. The corporate media is facing tremendous financial, employee and audience challenges. At the root of their problem is credibility.  A 2013 Gallup poll found only 1 in 4 Americans trust television or newspaper news.

At the same time technology has given rise to a new people-powered media. People can now turn their telephones into a video outlet and their social networks into a newspaper. Cities have groups like the DC Media group, citizen activists from the occupy movement, or like the Media Mobilizing Project in Philadelphia building media teams. And, through activist organizations, news that is not covered in the media is shared widely.

As TPP Opposition Soars, Corporate Media Blackout Deafening

Last week, more than 550 groups, representing tens of millions of individual members, signed a letter to members of Congress urging them to vote against a push by President Obama for ‘fast track’ authority for the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a so-called “free trade” now under negotation between the U.S. and eleven other Pacific rim nations.

The week before that, another 50 groups launched an energized online campaign called StopFastTrack.com in order to kill the TPP agreement—dubbed “NAFTA on steroids”—that they say “threatens everything you care about: democracy, jobs, the environment, and the Internet.”

But if you watch the evening cable or broadcast news shows, you might not know anything about the TPP—not what it is, not why Obama says it would be good for the country, and certainly not why these hundreds of public interest groups, environmentalists, economists, and labor organizations say trade agreements like this are the source of economic and labor woes, not the solution to them.

Scientist exposes flu shots lies and doom-and-gloom media propaganda

(NaturalNews) The mainstream media has utterly abandoned science in the push for more flu shot propaganda, entirely failing to mention any of the risks associated with vaccines. According to nearly every story published in the mainstream media, flu shot vaccines offer almost certain protection against the flu while carrying absolute zero risk (risk is never mentioned).
