"A means must be found to reign in the illegality and criminal activity in BC's provincial government."I believe that exposing unvarnished truth is the single most important thing. The co-opted mainstream media must be forced to change or be made irrelevant.
Share carefully written blogs with others and, whether you agree or disagree, participate in civil online conversations. The corporate media folks pretend they have a monopoly on determining news and they claim ability to direct the agenda. The public disagrees because, while traditional media properties lose audience members, readership of blogs like Northern Insight, Alex Tsakumis' Rebel with a Clause, Ian Reid's The Real Story, Harv Oberfeld's Keeping It Real, RossK's The Gazetteer, Laila Yuile's This Is How I See It and others steadily gain readers.
The corporate media pretends that online journalists don't exist or should not exist. I enjoy their reaction because the numbers of readers here tell a different story. AGT also reports that visits to his site have reached record levels, attracting people from all political persuasions who share a demand for ethical behaviour by politicians and civil servants.
The following material was first published here October 30, 2009. Attitudes of the participants haven't changed, their disrespect for audience members is as strong as ever. However, their own credibility has continued to wane.

"Nincompoops ranting in their underpants is the term for people blogging, for me."Keith:
"I don't believe these Weirdos on the internet."Thanks guys. You remain our inspirations with that neverending quest to find and report the real stories. By the way, are you willing to disclose your secondary income sources and investment portfolios? No involvement with industries reliant on government permissions, no doubt.
PS. Vaughan, for you today, I put on pair of slacks. Gives me a sense of power.
