I won't even comment on this video other than to say watch it:H/T to Shakes & Feminist Philosophers.
I admit, I didn't watch it all the way through, just long enough to be afraid. Very afraid.On a related note. Did you hear the piece on NPR today(All Things Considered, I think) about Sam Zell and the newspapers he now owns. OMG.
Um...no. I missed that. And I'm scared to go find it.
Thank you for taking the time to create a blog post on the video "Mad as Hell/Bitch". The video was created by two grassroots supporters who met online, IndyRobin and GeekLove08. It took 4 weeks to create the video as we were collaborating via e-mail and we had a lot of material to work with. Both of us are fairly new to YouTube-- I started to create videos in February and this was IndyRobin's first video. We believe that the message of misogyny, as well as the character assassination of Hillary Clinton, by the media is an important one. We are "mad as hell" that television has become what Edward R. Murrow had warned about in 1958 when he said "This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires and lights in a box." Thanks to people like you, the video has gone "viral" spreading through the internet, and perhaps inspiring people to speak out against the media. If you and/or your readers have the opportunity, we would appreciate it very much if you could go to the original video post on YouTube and RATE the video, post a COMMENT on the video, and FAVORITE the video. These actions will help the video earn YouTube "honors" which may help further promote the video online. (You can get to the YouTube site for the video by double clicking the video on your blog.) Thanks again for your post.GeekLove08P.S. The video is not an anti-Obama video, but rather a video against the media bias. No matter who one supports, this type of character assassination and sexism by the media should not be tolerated. However, for those who do support Hillary Clinton, a donation to her campaign, for those who can afford it, would be great. There is a donation link on YouTube. The donation link appears when you click "More info" that appears next to the video information "Added: April 06, 2008". I will also try to post a link here too -- Click to Donate. Thanks.
