http://mediamatters.org/ tracking conservative misinformation

6 September 2004

The republicans depend on the american public being so stupid that they don't even know what the word 'misinformation' is, let alone why it should worry their pretty little heads. And so it goes on and on: just float that bullshit down the media pipe, by the time anybody calls foul the average american has forgotten all about it. so it doesn't matter: you can just lie to people. its not illegal. its just "a mistake".

Media Matters for America is a Web-based, not-for-profit progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media. Conservative misinformation is defined as news or commentary presented in the media that is not accurate, reliable, or credible and that forwards the conservative agenda.

    • grime: love/hate

      On the street, cell phones enable impromptu rapping, or "spitting," over music played through speaker phones. Grime is hated and loved. Its basically a super media thing, attractive to people who write about stuff. All these "new" genres are like that (Favela funk, Reggaeton). Music is hard to talk about, and music writers ALWAYS bore me. They stick to the surface attributes. No way to know if something really is good or not based on these descriptions. If I listen ...

    • soundclash: nietzsche vs. buddha

      Many of the innovations in music for the past several decades happen in the more agressive, energetically active forms. Metal, punk, hip-hop, techno, jungle (hardcore), dancehall/bashment, grime. Nietzsche would be proud: the strong succeed, leading the way. The Appollonians may complain, back in their chill out rooms or up in their pop charts, but they follow the leader. Further down the line they sweeten the style up once its cooled off. War presidents think this way too. Apollonian nations fall ...
