The mainstream media does not speak inherent truth. And while many of us willingly critique this industry from which we receive nearly all of our news and information, society as a whole still tends to normalize and naturalize the narratives and intentions of mainstream media, blinding us from the reality of politics, economics and social conflict. I’m here to challenge the mainstream media by providing a look at what independent media is producing — what kind of stories they are telling, whom they are interviewing and what perspectives they are taking into consideration.
Indy media is a form of democracy that challenges the culture of passive consumption and corporate control. Let’s take it seriously, folks!
