Help MAIN Save The Internet

December 20, 2007 by onair

They said it couldn’t happen. The Internet genie is out of the bottle, and it could never be taken over by Big Business or Big Brother.

They were wrong. The cable and telephone companies are building a wall, dividing cyberspace into a fast Corporate Internet – and a second-class Internet for the rest of us. And they’re giving Big Brother easy access to our private information.

This change in the Internet’s basic operation endangers our civil liberties – such as privacy and free speech – and threatens to stifle technological innovation.

And it’s happening at a terrible time, when our ‘watchdog’ free press – a cornerstone of the Constitution’s checks-and-balances – is collapsing.

Case in point: In the spring of 2006, Time magazine announced the layoff of 650 employees – including award-winning investigative journalists Don Bartlett and Jim Steele.

A week later, Time paid $4 million for exclusive photos of Brad and Angelina’s baby. This is corporate journalism for the 21st century!

But there’s hope: MAIN is a leader in the national media reform movement, and we have one of the nation’s most promising business models for meeting these challenges to journalism and the Internet.

In addition, our high-speed wireless Internet service – if properly funded – will help solve the rural broadband problem, once and for all.

So we need you to do two things: first, take a look at this summary (including our expert endorsements) of MAIN’s plans to meet these challenges: http://www.main.nc.us/savethenet

Second, make a generous donation to help us continue this important and historic work.

We are also approaching national foundations for support, and these funders require evidence of strong local giving before adding their support. Make your donation by Dec. 31, and we will send you a free DVD of MAIN founder Wally Bowen explaining how – together – we can “Take Back the Media!”

PS – MAIN is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofit, so your donation is tax-deductible.

Did you catch the recent article in the local paper about teen pregnancy? It ignored the subject: girls and women, pregnant as a direct result of our community’s decisions to deny them information about sex. Every 28 minutes in North Carolina, a teenager becomes pregnant. Is the problem sex itself, or is it our society’s stance on sex—its rules for who is allowed to have sex, when, and why?

Kathy Putnam is an experienced Teen Parent Program and Male Involvement Network Program coordinator. She’s a staff member at Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Coalition of North Carolina (APPCNC). http://www.appcnc.org/ Kathy is our guest for a discussion of these issues. She’ll provide practical information on how you can be part of the solution.

Tune in on 103.5 FM or stream it live from this site. We’ll also feature local news, music, and more. Your host: Veronika Gunter.

In the broader sense of Greek parodia, parody can occur when whole elements of one work are lifted out of their context and reused, not necessarily to be ridiculed.


O’MENU : Book reading: The secret diaries of Dick Cheney ….Scientifics experiments around mashs-ups …..Lots of Breaking news : a copy of the(destroyed) video tape have been found … + Musharaaf new costums + and many more goodies for Christmess… Enjoy this special parody this week . Weird , fresh and positively hopeless .
