All the fancy bells and whistles that "new media" can provide won't conceal the fact that mainstream media is as dead as Julius Caesar. Just six corporations own every major media outlet in America. Look at the once-great San Jose Mercury News. Under Knight-Ridder, it was a bold and adversarial paper. It published Gary Webb's brave and dangerous account of CIA-sponsored cocaine trafficking. Now it's nothing but a pamphlet promoting endless war and other atavistic corporate behavior.

People aren't as stupid as our would-be corporate overlords think. The age of American oligarchy is drawing to a close. It ain't gonna be pretty.
