The Rise of Alternative Media

Submitted by on April 13, 2009 – 12:17 amNo Comment

alexjones21Given the increasingly more obvious corporate and government bias in mass media and the glaring failure of these organizations to hold their masters accountable, we are seeing the rise of alternative/independent media groups and independent blogs on all sorts of topics.

One source I follow some is Alex Jones of www.infowars.com pictured above. He spends a lot of his time tracking our slide toward police state and the movements of the New World Order crew.

Others like Catherine Austin Fitts work within networks of trust to identify and process news together and post on their blog at www.solari.com.

Wikipedia defines alternative media as media (newspapers, radio, television, movies, Internet, etc.) which are alternatives to the business or government-owned mass media. Proponents of alternative media argue that the mainstream media are biased. While sources of alternative media are also frequently biased (sometimes proudly so), the bias tends to be significantly different than that of the mainstream media, hence “alternative”. As such, advocacy journalism tends to be a component of many alternative outlets.

Because the term “alternative” has connotations of self-marginalization, some media outlets now prefer the term “independent” over “alternative”.
