Tim, some promising ideas to fund some kind of independent supervision
for authentic journalism; you know the kind that tells readers what
their elected officials and corporate policies are hiding; but nowhere
do you mention the frightening reality the WikiLeaks and its founder
are being legally destroyed in the courts of the UK and likely
soon in the U.S.
Julian Assange is being tortured in Belmarsh prison while you talk
about Murdoch’s Fox News being disinformation, and right your are, but without Assange’s authentic journalism it’s all permanent war propaganda.
OK. I’m one of them durned Jihadist-RooskiBot-BernieBro™ cranks whining about MEDIA & blogosphere agitprop just DISTRACTING us from scary TRUTH, we can’t HANDLE…
Well, here’s a wishy-washy liberal story CD should really be covering a few times each day (as poor essentials are being forced back into COVID 3.0, unprotected and unprepared?)

Real small town reporters are gone—Tech will take us deep in the Orwellian world-----break up all these giant media companies–there needs to be real public space for people to share views----away from the Corporate Overlords.
Facebook’s approach is just so wrong!
