so long ago, a concerned citizen by the name of Errol Vagrom looked
out over a media-landscape only to see mayhem and disaster, tabloid
trials, and a constant bombardment of messages telling him that
"having" something or other would solve some sort of problem.
The sight began to make him ill. So he decided to do something about
"People don't want materialist propaganda and a feeling of fear
and helplessness," said Errol. "As citizens of a so-called democratic
nation, we deserve the right to be informed. Public airwaves ought
to serve public interests instead of private profit margins. The
handful of multinational corporations that dominate what we see
and hear should take heed: WE DON'T WANT WHAT YOU'RE DISHING
OUT AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO STAND FOR IT ANYMORE!"
So he got a couple of old TV sets, some odds and some ends, and
started making what he hoped would become Citizen Owned and Operated
Media. And he called it:
Release yourself from the candy-coated grip of conspicuous corporate
don't kill your television!
