Zephyr Teachout Extended Interview | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
Law professor Zephyr Teachout reflects on her gubernatorial campaign, offers strategies for reforming politics and discusses her book "Corruption in America: From Benjamin Franklin's Snuff Box to Citizens United."
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

How refreshing is this woman! This was a person Lawrence Lessig sent e-mail notices to support if possible. She was not funded by MAYDAYUSA.COM this time but she seems to support getting into public service to serve the interest of the people and also fight corruption. She has at least thought enough about it to write a book on the topic.

PBS News Hour Covers Big Money In Politics More Than All Other Networks Combined

PBS News Hour Covers Big Money In Politics More Than All Other Networks Combined | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

How come no one ever of hears anything that matters from commercial sponsored media other than more about vaginal mesh, and Johnny-be-Ready for action like you were twenty pills, Progressive insurance and All State and a million drugs greatness and forced details of their harm? That would be because these networks work for the interest of the sponsors profits and not for or to inform citizens  in democracy.


 First thing mass media fails to report is how the FCC has been used for at least16 years or far more as a place to put commissioners that are no more than payback positions to the very rich and powerful or their family members for campaign donations/support and to protect very high officials from the threat of media ruin or semi-blackout if they fail to clear a path for the media giants to suck money and power from the public. This is the purpose of placing these corrupted commissioners into such positions as things have proved out in the past.  Some commissioners have arrived only to succumb to bribes such as great future jobs within in industries we are paying them to watch over for behavior and to create policy in regards to those industries that insures they are acting in the best interest of the citizens of the nation and the Law.


This is one of the most critical commissions we have. The FCC,  along with congress controls whether or not we have wide, fair and open freedom of expression and the information sources allowed and available  to us that help inform us enough to make wise decisions as individuals and as citizens in a community and nation. Corrupted this commission can allow these industries to twist the truth and block it for corruption of democracy in the name of profits for the few that helped them get the job mainly to ensure they were protected from public knowledge rather than the public protected from misused and delivered media services. A short look at Tom Wheeler's background confirm this. Why would a man that has always been into making himself rich no matter what suddenly become a "Public Servant " for far less annual salary?

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Excerpt:


I mention all this because my eyes popped when I came across a posting on GigaOm which said portentously: "Journalism isn't just about informing readers, it's also about helping them take action." Doh!

Successful local (and national) newspapers in Britain have always been pro-active. Editors who listen to their readers' problems do not merely report them; they do their best to help. And that has always been the case.
