How does the news falsify the motivations of powerful people?
I appreciate how you write not just in critique of the media but also with concrete examples of what they could write instead. I’ve recently made a such a suggestion to a critical journalist here on substack who told me that he doesn’t do activism. I think this is a common misunderstanding among journalists that pointing out what politicians are not doing that they could be doing that would better serve their communities by making those connections you mention is “activism.” Since when did analysis and information become solely the realm of activism? As a media studies scholar, your work has been refreshing for years!
Thank you for your work in researching and preparing these pieces. Sobering. Interesting. Very interesting!
I wonder how your work here is not going viral with followers and comments galore?
Great read, thank you for your ongoing work
Terrific analysis, really appreciate your work formulating it. You are one of my very favorite thinkers. I have much admiration for you.
Thank you for pointing out that we live in a dystopia world that most people do not see
Excellent follow-up to your previous post. I feel like the idea of intentions could take up several posts. I was reminded of The New Jim Crow and how high the bar for legally proving discrimination is because you must prove intent. Same with some campaign finance fraud and who knows how many other things.
What happens when they unleash the robot dogs?
I come to your articles pretty skeptical, but this was a persuasive one. At first I couldn't even see why you had a problem, but you made sense.
