Media EmergenC, San Diego, CA, October 6-9, 2004


  • Are you upset about how the corporate media act as cheerleaders from war, while they profit from it?
  • Are you frustrated about how the corporate media named George Bush as our president before he actually was, supporting the illegal election?
  • Are you tired of never hearing the words "global warming" come from the mouth of a TV newsperson?
  • Are you sick of hearing about the NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange numbers instead of the number of unemployed, homeless, or people without healthcare?
  • Are you tired of watching the corporate media misrepresent your issues, your actions and your organizations?
  • Are you sick of hearing the words "immigrant" and "terrorist" and “activist” in the same sentence on TV and Radio?

I think you might be suffering from the Media EmergenCy.
