A preliminary list of free news media sources of assorted types across assorted political spectra.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: I think I should simply split them into 'corporate media' and 'journalistic media', although to say that about one or other entire source is not entirely unmisleading. Thus the division is really just a guideline, not a hard delineation. Many exceptions exist. Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Corporate media:

Unification: This grid point has just been created today on Monday 17th June. For those who cannot understand how this page works and have not seen any like them before, note that this particular 'grid point' will be expanded until its contents are sufficient, and then I'll begin on the next phase my new activity of rounding up the media.

In future other items may also be added to this list, and naturally will be - particularly good blogs, as and when I find them. Try not to be 'bound by forms', to put it in the least non-form-bound way I can.

In the short term I will be adding new links to those two lists every week, as I go through much old data to look for key material which should be added to the current batches of outbound (in your general direction) information.

It is very important for you, and me, to understand that I now intend to use this platform to unify all those sources listed as 'Journalistic sources' on this page - such writers, groups, activists and movements cannot unify on places like facebook and twitter.

One reason for that is that it is not 'their territory' but belongs, outright, to corporate totalitarian powerr - so people like us are constantly censored and banned, and divided. There is no real way for a unity to form in that environment, allowing all the good work from all those different sources to meet up in one place and grow and spread from there.

TVhobo will now do that.

Those who don't know about TVhobo should be told - in its initial years TVhobo reached hundreds and thousands of readers across most towns and cities in the UK, much of the USA and Germany.

The reason it stopped was because I chose to switch it off - and that was because once Corbyn's power had been consolidated I felt that I had a duty to clean up this site and make it much more precise before returning it to the 'political battlefield'. Hence in recent months the item called "Owen Jones, Israel and Numberwang" appeared - in order to return to the public part of this site some particularly pertinent info from the rest of the site.

Anyway, what's important now is this - by posting systematically, regularly, in large volumes, from all those sites, unifying them, binding them together with sound commentary and facing up to the corporate media, I can form something as yet not seen 'even' in the 'facebook era' - ie an environment where all these good sources merge into one ultra powerful source.

TVhobo has had addictive usage for years, when it was functioning in the past - and its readers will mostly all return as will 100s of 1000s of new ones.

I will attempt to get going on this soon, but for now it is important that I spend weeks gathering up urls to use, for both lists, journalistic and corporate.

I will do my best to spotlight and rebut all the bullshit in the corporate media whilst spotlighting and emphasising the key points the real journalists make.

By 16th September 2019 let's see how much I can have done. That's the first target date to see what kind of good result can be achieved by then.

Remember on facebook that your 'posts' are spread apart - that users all subscribe to different collections of pages or friends and that there is, even before you consider the censorship and banning of democratic anti-corporatist ideas, little strength in delivering newsmedia that way.

The truth is that it isn't social media which has made it possible for the world to read alternative views to the corporate media, it's all the journalists I mention and their sites - which just happen to use social media as the most likely way to reach otherwise sheltered/sequestered audiences.

Fortunately TVhobo is a little different, it belongs in the same class as facebook and google not in the same class as those journalistic sources I have cited. It is capable (as in the past) of reaching a hell of a lot of people and linking them up to the information they particularly want and need.

Anyway, in the meantime, whilst I get on with this list, why not read the long work via the link in the references below. It may not be 'complete', but what's there is definitely worth reading.
