I think we all know that TV is the medium that is both the most powerful, and the most dominated by corporations/conservatives. I think Rabble Vision is a great idea to take back this medium ( However, in order for it to be successful in reaching beyond a small group of devoted progressives they will have to provide better quality and more entertaining videos. That said it is definately a step in the right direction. And I understand they are underfunded, so there is only so much they can do.

The point I'm trying to make here is that we need to take a hold of internet video before corporations do - and we all know they will.

I'm not sure how to do this, besides sending people good online videos we find, and also supporting organizations like rabble that are utilizing the medium.

but another positive sign is that COA News now offers a Free "Video Alert Service". Once a week, they send email subscribers their latest news videos for free. Through-out the week they scan their list of independent media affiliates and feature the best independent news and public affairs video available.

Hi seander, welcome to babble.

Since this thread isn't about a news story, I'm going to move it to the media forum, since you're talking about a media issue.
