Peoples’ media v moguls’ media

Social media or, if you like, the peoples’ media, may prove to be the most effective antidote to the power of the commercial media empires.  We have no resources, except our tools for internet access, but we can speak up together where others quake in fear of repercussions.   

Today’s article about DemocracyFail on the Left Foot Forward blog is alerting more people to our campaign.  There have been a lot of visits to this site and, at the time of writing, already 40 new followers on Twitter.   Every person who has joined this campaign wants to see changes to the rules on media ownership. 

An interesting question for our times, and an important question for our campaign:  can the peoples’ media challenge the moguls’ media?
