People who are interested in having a greater effect on politics might want to consider funding friendly media rather than contributing to campaigns. Television spots on networks that depend on bootlicking for access don't do much good.


Or fund media that present a lively discussion of many views, that in fact consider opening the closed mind to be the objective, rather than nailing minds shut, and setting citizen against citizen. Be nice too if the media would include not only theand dots, but the lines between them, not only the factoids, memes and frames, not only the government newsreels from the front, and product placements from commericial partners, and mock debates between think tank sophists on the payroll of private interests, but also the framers and producers of the spectacle, and the underlying if undisclosed policies and their likely results.
