Why the Revolution will not be televised

Television, sad day for you. We don't need you anymore. This revolution is progressing whether you like it, or, whether you cover it or not.


On the occasion of Bernie Sanders' exclusion by the corporate media, The Young Turks presented a protest by people outside CNN's Los Angeles headquarters. Then, TYT host, Cenk Uygur, explained why the Revolution will not be televised and why we don't need corporate media anymore.

From the description on the YouTube video:

Over the weekend there was a protest of CNN in Los Angeles. They wanted to protest the company’s Bernie Sanders black out. Their concerns are justified. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down.

On Sunday, more than 1,000 protesters voiced their anger over CNN's lack of Bernie Sanders coverage at the network's Los Angeles headquarters. The protest against the "Bernie blackout" comes a week after Sanders took Hawaii, Washington and Alaska by large margins in the primaries on Western Saturday, which CNN downplayed.

Uygur provided some interesting information concerning the time coverage of Sanders, Clinton and Trump by the media:

According to one tally of nightly broadcast network news during the 2015 primary season, Sanders received a total of 20 minutes of coverage, compared to Clinton’s 121 minutes and Trump’s 327.” (NY Times)

and

Another study that focused solely on network coverage showed Sanders receiving 6 percent of the coverage Trump did on network news in 2015, and 16.5 percent that of Clinton.” (Alternet)

The most impressive here is not that Sanders has so little time coverage compared to the other two. This was something, more or less, expected. The most impressive, is that Donald Trump, who is promoted as "anti-establishment", takes more time coverage in the media, even compared to the definitely-pro-establishment Hillary Clinton!

Which is another strong indication to our estimation that Trump is only a reserve of the establishment.

But, the most significant conclusion arrives when Uygur explains, simple and straight, why the Revolution will not be televised:

Television is part of the establishment, and of course, they (corporate media) will not televise a revolution that will overthrow them. Luckily, now, it doesn't have to be televised, you can get it livestream in a number of alternative internet channels (like The Young Turks), or through the social media (Facebook, YouTube etc.).

So, finally, Uygur sent his message to the corporate media (as many of us would like to do):

Television, sad day for you. We don't need you anymore. This revolution is progressing whether you like it, or, whether you cover it or not.

  1. Same imbalance in Australian television coverage of US politics - it's almost entirely about Trump and Clinton.

  2. The mainstream media needs to be informed: Either they begin providing full and unbiased coverage, or they will be boycotted.

  3. Fusion has picked up The Young Turks show.
    Fusion is owned by Univision.
    Univision is owned by Hiam Saban.
    Saban is Hillary Clinton's LARGEST single campaign donor.
