Excellent commentary from Professor Black Truth on how New media threatens the old, status quo.
More on this topic is forthcoming. New media is a threat to the control old media has on society.
I first started to pay attention to this story a few days ago. An example of what Professor Black Truth is talking about is below.
Some content creators are doing this for money, while others get a mental thrill from being influential. Others fall somewhere in between.
David Packman, may be one of those who are in between. We can tell hes passionate about what he covers. He’s an example of new media threatening the status quo.
But this advertising boycott may run him off YouTube. That may not be all bad however.
*Update 11/4/17 – A lot has happened, showing that new media is indeed threatening the status quo. Since the election of our new president, Old Media has come under fire, but so has new media too. Independent voices have been drowned out, over the past several months. Most recently, as of last week, New York Blogs which were very popular were bought out, and wiped clean. Obliterating their archives and any ‘stories’ that may not have made the Status quo look bad.
