Seriously, Placin does what Placin wants. There's a picture of him, Medievalev and The Burlesque-conman having lunch on my fridge too...

The internet isn't like that (yet).

The internet enables kids to set up LiveStream feeds of live events, and anyone in the world with the internet can watch.

This is unprecedented in history. It offers great hope.

And yet tech companies pay bloggers (who seem to everyone impartial) to argue their cause and sell their products. Tweets are routinely paid for, so when a celebrity tweets they are having fun on holiday, or enjoying a pizza, you really have no idea whether they are posting an honest opinion, or saying something for a fee.
In this respect the internet is more devious than television and radio, where you have to declare a financial interest or business bias.

Huh? What planet are you living on?

There is currently room for anything on the internet, corporate shills and independent civilian bloggers alike.

The planet where you are duped into believing 'independent opinion' on the internet, only to find the blogger/forum member is paid by Oracle or Google.
Laws haven't caught up.
On the radio and television there are regulations that mean they have to clearly indicate when they are paid to express an opinion.

As you know, the internet requires judicious consumption.

If you can't find independent news outlets, you're doing it wrong. :facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:

maybe in your country. in the us much of 'news' pieces, especially on the local news... the fluff pieces, the lifestyle, the human interest, the celebrity, the health and science stuff.. are usually just press releases from whoever is pushing what and are passed off as 'news' and information.

when you get to more of the national broadcast news, it shows up there as well at times, but more from much more powerful interests than the 'broccoli is healthy for you' growers association that will show up in the local news health segment

Same with Assange news.

and you hear about it because there is an internet. because there is mass global communication. because there is constant 24/7 to fill.

assange IS because there's an internet!

and.. and... whats the point you pushing anyhow?

besides... don't how things work in your country but american news media is pretty much picking up virtually all there stuff off the internet....NOT the other way round.

fukk.. all matt drudge has to do is report that some big shot politician is having sex orgies with aliens aboard a flying saucer without even a verifiable source and tv news will be all over it that same evening

(For the third time) that the internet wasn't responsible for the whole world hearing about Pussy Riot.
Many national broadcasters have correspondents in Moscow.

ok, got ya. it was lost in the sauce.

Who cares?

They are getting attention in the time we live in... The whole point of living in time. To some. Some like to give and take. Eat and be eaten.

Lyrics from a song by Pussy Riot. In englishish.

----------------------------------------------
"The Kremlin is the rebellious colonies
In FSBshnyh cabinets explode window.
Females ssut for red walls
Riot announce Abortion system!

Attack at dawn? I will not argue
For our freedom and yours a whip to punish
Madonna in Glory learn to fight
Feminist Magdalene went to the demonstration

Revolt in Russia - the charisma of protest
Rebellion in Russia - Putin pissed
Rebellion in Russia - we exist
Rebellion in Russia - rayot rayot

Go out to the street,
Live in Red
Show freedom
civil anger

(playing on the square)

Discontent culture male hysteria
Wild leaderism eats brains
Orthodox religion is a hard penis
Patients are invited to conformity

Mode is censorship dreams
It's time to disruptive collisions
A flock of females sexist regime
Apologies to feminist wedge.

Revolt in Russia - the charisma of protest
Rebellion in Russia - Putin pissed
Rebellion in Russia - we exist
Rebellion in Russia - rayot rayot

Go out to the street,
Live in Red
Show freedom
civil anger"
---------------------------------------------


I don't understand, can anyone explain?

Stating there aren't independent news on the internet...

The fail is strong on this topic.

Yep, internet freehadist are wrong, but the black/white view of the world around here is pretty hopeless.

They were convicted of "hooliganism"... whatever that is in Russia. Sounds like what happens if you talk bad about Obama in the USA.

I don't see a real "clash of civilizations". Our own and religious institutions and government would put us in jail if they were allowed to. Fortunately, they are not.

Not imprisoned, but certainly arrested. Arrested all the time. Haven't you been watching FOX news? :lol:
