“Elon Musk’s takeoever of Twitter promises to level the playing field between citizen journalists and the legacy media that seems to walk in lockstop these days. But legacy media nuked itself long before Musk. Several newspapers, television networks and blogs are tossing employees overboard because of the downturn in the economy. Yet the New York Times union is planning a walkout to demand higher wages. Good luck with that.”

Given how vicious legacy media has been towards citizen media…I hope it will not be much longer, before legacy media entirely implodes.

We need media with integrity…and we are living in a time when many niche communities want their own media produced, from within their own community…largely because it will be produced by people who understand, and speak for that community…They aren’t being entirely lost, by some distant company funded by billions of dollars, and owned by special interest groups and individuals.

The legacy medias traditional audience is dying…and the majority of the rest of us, simply do not want the slanted, misleading product they have to offer…

…It’s pissing off a lot of citizens, watching legacy media doing all it can to destroy what citizen media has spent decades creating.

“Wizards of the Coast is removing “race” from DnD, and players are reacting on social media. Some are blasting WotC because of bending the knee to faux media outrage, while others are complaining that the replacement term “species” is just as bad. Oh, and Oxford recognizes “goblin mode” as a dictionary entry and it means being selfish and greedy. Meanwhile, JK Rowling…”

“Dungeons & Dragons is dropping the term ‘race’ completely from One D&D, because of it somehow being ‘problematic’ in current year. Um, we’re talking about fictitious monsters and NOT people, but welcome to Current Year. Then we talk about Wizards of the Coast losing millions in revenue from last year.”

“Some comic book creators are accusing Indiegogo of shadow banning or suppressing comic book crowdfunding campaigns based on political content. We talk about this, and where comics really rank in the overall scheme of things in terms of crowdfunding dollars. Is it time for comic creators to go back to a more DIY approach?”

“The trailer for Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (what a title) seemingly confirm the YouTube rumors about a time travel plot. And someone on 4chan claims to have seen a test screening and that OTHER rumor about Phoebe Wall-Bridge’s character supplanting Indiana Jones could also be true. However, director James Mangold vehemently denies it. Is he telling the truth, or will this be another Kevin Smith debacle?”

Crystal Skull did not “ruin the franchise”…It was simply subpar.

They need to recast the franchise characters…or develop new characters, and move forward with those…We don’t need the old characters…just good new ones.

“If Apple and Google take Twitter out of their app stores, Elon Musk says he’ll just start making his own cell phones. And the mad lad would do it. Then Wil Wheaton thinks a rich guy buying one website is the end of Western civilization. And Wheaton left Twitter ages ago.”

“Vice News dropped a hit piece on the manga industry, essentially claiming that manga was mostly filled with “p-word” and that it caused child abuse. Japan will not have it. In fact, many Japanese are FURIOUS with Vice, who might’ve even broken the law by filming a shop without the shop owner’s consent.”
