    Yeah, that’s never going to happen.

    The media is too centralised, owned by too few people with too much money and an agenda to run the world.

    We were raised with the notion that information must be free, but forgot to figure out how to pay for food for the ones producing that information.

    Once the rivers of gold (real-estate advertising and pages and pages of personal adverts) dried up, journalism was doomed and freedom of the press with it.

    The closest we still have is public broadcasting, but that is being decimated by Neo Liberal claptrap beholden to interest groups.

    If we don’t figure this out soon, democracy as we know it will vanish, if it isn’t too late already.
