  •  Who are these people, you ask? (6+ / 0-)

    They are the ones who own our government and our entire communications infrastructure.

    Is it any wonder that the lies about @OWS continue? These bastards know that they started this war, but "the 99%" is going to finish it.  We need to keep the pressure on.

    REPEAL the Telecomm Act & REVIEW this decision. NO journalist should be fired because their boss can't have the truth told.

      that communications infrastructure will be their downfall.

      They would love to cut off the internet, the cell phones, the websites - but they can't. They use them too. It's their lifeline as much as ours.

      Cut it, and they cut their own throats.

      The mass media isn't what things like this use. They use the other tools, they ones that are just as crucial for them.

      So they are truly between a rock and a hard place. Disrupt our communications, and they disrupt their own.

        I wasn't just referring to "cutting off the Internets" or anything like it. I'm sure the reference could be found in the "other tools" you mentioned--primarily their ability to spread propaganda.

        There are, clearly, entire networks, where many thousands of people cooperate in an effort to bring class-warfare lies to that infrastructure on a mass basis, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week--through America's airwaves into her homes, for millions to absorb on a daily basis.

        And doesn't it take workers to make the networks work, too? ;)

        •  Spreading propaganda only works (0+ / 0-)

          when people listen to it and believe it.

          Not that many people listen to it anymore (the news networks have only minuscule audiences compared to the top entertainment shows), and even fewer believe it.

          And fewer are believing it all the time.
