Opening this arena up to Alternative News would create an avenue for more transparent politics and government imo.



It entirely depends on your definition of "ALTERANTIVE"..

As best I can tell the Trump Administration's definition of "Good" media is any outlet that never publishes anything negative about him..Like his Senior Counselor's outlet Briebart or his close friend and campaigner Alex Jones.

We just want the media owned by these megaconglomerates out:


and independents in. You can have Young Turks in there.


Who do you mean by "we" exactly? You're not even saying what the poster I was replying to was saying so the idea of a consensus seems a bit dubious. Yes, there has been a lot of consolidation of the media. As I said, I'm all for giving smaller outlets access.

What I am against and you should be against as well is a government attack on the media. It's ironic that as a private citizen, if I track a dozen known fabricated stories and report back to the community with a list of sites that republished straight up hoaxes (with links), fake news addicts pile on the bulls# about freedom of the press. Many of the same people who are opposed to me pointing out objective reality, easily corroborated independently, are also for an incoming administration banning media outlets that are critical while promoting outlets that suck up to them.

You can try to make it about "megaconglomerates" if you want but it's really about government weilding undue influence over the media. Trump isn't motivated by a desire to diversify media ownership, he's attempting to strong arm the media to silence critical voices.

Great news!
The Fake News MSM is on it's last legs any way, and it's time for other outlets to step into their shoes and take journalism back to solid ground once again. This can only be good for America. For far too long, the lying MSM has polluted - and continues to pollute - the public discourse in this country. CNN, ABC, Huff Po and others need to become another footnote in history.

Here comes Alex Jones and every other conservative blogger out there. What a disaster the next 4 years will be but no matter how bad it gets I'm sure conservatives will praise every mistake and blunder by Trump and the GOP, just like they are now.



So the MSM has not already been a huge disaster all ready? Remember the polls telling you until the very last moments 90% hillary and 10 for trump until they had absolutely no choice anymore and all of a sudden the entire MSM every had polls showing the opposite?

People have been dropping the MSM i mass and turned to alt media because it is far more reliable, no contest.

Oh no.

I can hear Alex Jones uncontrollably yelling things and selling Berkey things on the white house lawn.

Yikes!
Dont forget, possible random yelling s about brainforce during Trump's press conference. Don't be surprised if Trump says it too.


On a serious note with regards to the OP. Xuenchen said everything in the post below:

Makes sense because "Alternative Media" has become reality.

And the standard "MSM" has been exposed for so many fake stories.





I welcome our new Alt Media overlords. ATS should get a pass too by the way, since technically this is an alt media platform as well. (It's actually my number 1 source to keep up with the news.)

Can you imagine the episodes of NLBS here on ATS? epic.

If there is an ATS Mod living in Washington DC he/she should get authorization to get press pass from the owners of ATS.

How awesome would it be..... "Mr Trump so-and-so from Above Top Secret".......asks member driven questions.

Equally scary is how the media as we know it is quickly being gobbled up by huge corporate machines and it becomes easier for them to set their own political bias which rolls downhill to the smaller outlets. Remember the emails revealing the Clinton influences of which compromised media reporting? Isn't that essentially the same as "government control" over the media?

This is great. Give them front row and make CNN stand in the back, way in the back.

Just another great move by the Trump administration.
The elite little club the media had created needs to be dismantled. Real media needs to replace the propaganda machines.
That is how real people will be properly represented.
ATS should apply!

This is why conspiracy theorists are the rejects of society. They have terrible ideas and don't operate well with humans.

I love it. Put the MSM media in their place and allow those willing to do the job replace them. Alternative news is getting to be the only place to get actual news.

So apparently, CNN is fake news. MSNBC, when they criticize Donald will be fake news, and soon FOX will be fake news as well. Washington Post has joined the list, The Journal and Huffington.

Those are the three main media outlets, with many smaller networks working for them. Now, if that umbrella of news outlets are promoting fake news, and the one online outlet (TYT) is now being called fake news.

Please, do me the honor and list all the American news sources that are not fake news, in YOUR opinion. A full list. I have extended this offer to every Trump supporter, from YouTube videos, to alt-right websites, and I have yet to see a list.

Why don't I see a list? Because fake news is based on whether that news organization criticizes or praises Donald. It has nothing to do with the quality of news, but rather protecting the ego not only of the cult personality you call Donald, but the reality of his brainwashed victims.

That's why they can not list them. In reality, they will never know until that news organization takes a firm stance on Donald's policies. If they are exposing his lies, or promoting headlines which would damage the ego, and destroy the reality of his supporters, they will go on the list.

So basically what I am saying is, EVERY news outlet is essentially fake news. The only truth news to his supporters are Donald's words which have proven to be hollow, and contradictory. Which is scary because it is exactly how cult followers behavior with their leader.

But go ahead, Trump supporters, deny Donald's cult personality. That's another thing cult members do.

how can people here be so freaking naïve?

Do you not understand what's going on here?

This isn't about "alternative media"! This is about Donald Trump creating his very own personal sycophantiv boot licking press corps. Press corps that will do and say and report exactly the propaganda that Donald Trump and his merry band of corporate fascists want them to.

I mean today he's throwing a fit over the fact that CNN ACCURATELY reported the size of the crowd at his inauguration. This is his mindset. He's denouncing CNN for reporting a 100% accurate truthful fact.

He's going to relegate all news media outlets that report things he doesn't like to the back of the room, and will promote all of these so-called "alternative media" outlets to the front of the room. Their only job will be to do and say exactly as he wants them to.

And all of you so-called conspiracy theorists are eating it up like a dog eats his own vomit.

Get real people. Wake up! How can so many people in a forum dedicated to conspiracy theories be so naïve? I simply can't comprehend it

Most of the MSM aren't news outlets, they are liberal propaganda purveyors. Just look at campaign donations, overwhelmingly the media donates to democrats. Do you honestly think their "news" coverage is fair and unbiased? Don't be naive. We need a real media, not liberal corporate shills masquerading as journalists.
