Chris Hedges on What it Takes to be a Rebel in Modern Times - YouTube
If you care about the truth you eventually run into problems as the journalist who usually manipulates facts for a living. // neoliberalism sold to us through lies and manipulated facts. // 2/3rds of the country in poverty. // mania for hope is a political pacifier even for the liberals, keeping people hopeful - keeps people complacent. // moral imperative for civil disobedience. // but do not use the word hope! // game is fixed. // rebellion led by day class intellectuals. that band together with the underclass. // if you have whole-sale surveillance, you can't have investigative journalism // it's about ratings and money, they don't do journalism. << corporate media. // dismantling BBC by tories is a power play by tories (power elite) // &! - Most of the information we spread online is quantifiably “bullshit” - The internet encourages the spread of information that is emotionally resonant but factually untrue

How Jonah Peretti and BuzzFeed Got to $850 Million | Re/code
BuzzFeed +500 people. Even if you want to slight the company as nothing more than a Reddit repackager, someone has to do that repackaging. But if you’re only looking at BuzzFeed as a media company, then that $850 million might seem optimistic. Last year, people around the company pegged BuzzFeed’s 2013 revenue at $60 million, and now they’re supposedly on track for $120 million. Which means Dixon and his co-workers at Andreessen Horowitz are likely valuing Jonah Perreti’s company at something like 10x trailing 12-month sales. Investors value the New York Times at 1.2x sales. Time Inc. is at 0.77x. Time Warner, which mints money, is at 2x. + Are There Internet Dialects? Transporting Internet language, dialects, memes etc and ideas how to present stuff in an enlightening manner to mainstream. Still, thank god, there is a gap and lets hope there will always be a gap. ++ !! "most revenues come from creating ads for other brands" !! ++
