Join the Side You’re On, by SSS

If you don’t like the mainstream press, there are hundreds of alternative media outlets out there. Find the ones you like and support them. From SSS at theburningplatform:

I have been mostly offline on TBP for nearly two years. I recently read an excellent article about journalism and its degradation and impact on the 2016 election. The full article is here.

If you don’t want to read the full article, fine. But these words may resonate with the TBP faithful.

I urge you to support the media you like. As the great writer and thinker Midge Decter once put it, “You have to join the side you’re on.” ….. There are many wonderful, thoughtful, small publications and websites that exist on a shoestring. Don’t let them die. Subscribe or contribute to those you enjoy. ….. Put your money where your heart and mind are. An expanded media landscape that better reflects the diversity of public preferences would, in time, help create a more level political and cultural arena. That would be a great thing. So again I urge you: join the side you’re on.
