Battle The Fox
In the documentary OutFOXed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism (Interviews) [fox news, FNC, media], Jeff Cohen a former MSNBC/Fox News Contributor describes media as "the nervous system of democracy" what then emerges throughout the film is a media envionment which is not just sick but dying, the press is not free it is a victim of the right - it is a Murdoch construct. Perhaps we all know this, however what emerges from OutFOXed is the need for independent networks to provide a more rounded view of the world and this need is not coming from the providers but the consumers. Link tv is an excellent site providing alternative and intelligent news drawn from all over the world as well topical debate. Particularly good is Mosaic 'world news from the MIddle East'.
As Murdoch begins buying up the web Linktv is one of the saving lights of democracy and all that without a bomb or a threat.
