It is great when we find ways to break through the propaganda barrier and bring some truth into the people sitting on the couch waiting for the television to tell them what they think.
If we're lucky, a few minutes of truth leak into a long piece on worshipful crowds squealing at the sight of the president's van, as happened in San Francisco at yet another fundraiser on Monday.
If we're really lucky, the spot runs on both the 6pm and 11pm news, and on affiliate stations.
But for this activist, being our own media is every bit as important. Notice how Regis Tremblay's Truth TV coverage of our drone die-ins is both more artistic than mainstream tv coverage, and more revealing of how to do such actions in your community. His voiceover provides context, and instead of showing himself as a talking head, he squeezes in a few more images, keeping the total time under five minutes for a crisp upload that others can help share. What Regis' video above demonstrates most eloquently is the power of teamwork in our quest to bring truth to our fellow citizens.
