Reality, it seems, has a strong anti-Hollywood bias

in an amazing statement
the riaa said this

It’s very difficult to counter the misinformation when the disseminators also own the platform.”

of course he ment the net but he represents the msm,

But much more to the point: we're talking about all of the major media companies in the world who were in support of this thing, and they're seriously claiming that they didn't have the means to get their message out? Who the hell do they think they're fooling? They own all the major TV networks, all the cable news networks, the majority of top magazines, a bunch of top radio stations... and most of those media outlets refused to give critics of these bills the time of day. But suddenly they're claiming they couldn't get their message out? Give me a break.


We've been pointing out that one of the big reasons why the MPAA/RIAA and others failed in their efforts to rush through SOPA/PIPA was that they have been totally and completely tone deaf to what's happening online. And it appears that's continuing. The LA Times had a bizarre article over the weekend, where people were suggesting that the MPAA needed to "do a lot of test messaging," to see what would work in convincing the public that censoring the internet is a good thing. Test messaging? Seriously?!? They still seem to think that this is about a lobbying or PR campaign, rather than actually engaging and hearing what people have to say.

so the msm shilling loby wants to test a message to see what people would accept as reason for censorship?

are these guys deaf or so heavily bought they cant see that they are awaking people at a staggering rate.

so the joke here is that the RIAA has no ability to get THEIR message accross?

Those who count on quote 'Hollywood' for support need to understand that this industry is watching very carefully who's going to stand up for them when their job is at stake. Don't ask me to write a check for you when you think your job is at risk and then don't pay any attention to me when my job is at stake,"


so here we have chris dodd getting his message out loud and clear,
im sure most on the net know dodd warned other serving senitors that they were paid and now must forfill there part to comit to passage of bills they never read

Public Knowledge welcomes constructive dialog with people from all affected sectors about issues surrounding copyright, the state of the movie industry and related concerns. Cybersecurity experts, Internet engineers, venture capitalists, artists, entrepreneurs, human rights advocates, law professors, consumers and public-interest organizations, among others should be included. They were shut out of the process for these bills.

mabey if you listened to the experts you blocked out of negotiations,
you wouldnt look like such douch bags lol

we can hear you message,
problem is your behaviour is so outragous that EVERYONE HEARS YOUR MESSAGE

when the RIAA wines it has no vioce but lobbies for the msm,
i say send in dodd he is the perfect in your face,

advertising industry and hollywood types have bought your system.

and they want censorship,

well guess what,
you have just exposed yourself in a way that no investigation could.

people realise that reality is more powerful than lies and bribbery

and the RIAA and hollywood have found reality paints them as they are,
obviously corrupt and only interested in censorship to control the net,

they said it themselves,

they are losing public opinion even with the ability to control main stream media.

which means the net is now more powerful than the msm

they are scared and acting foolish and have drawn far to much attension of the public whos opinion they wish to sway.

well done RIAA you expose yourself

Those guys are a bunch of tools. Every time some new innovation has come along in entertainment, they have run to big gov to suppress it. Funny thing is, they end up making money off of all the innovations they have tried to suppress through the years.

They aren't even shy about threatening major political figures.

Hollywood threatens Obama over SOPA

If you see the White House invaded by aliens, blown up by laser beams or bombed by terrorists in any of the big summer blockbusters this year, consider it a subtle hint to the Oval Office by way of Hollywood.

After US President Barack Obama demanded revamped provisions in the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA, Los Angeles film executives are rescinding their support of the commander-in-chief.

While Hollywood hot-shots were in the past major contributors to the 2008 campaign for Barack Obama, movie execs are heated up over the presidents halting of SOPA. On the West Coast, filmmakers and affiliated are insisting that the move is a major blow to the movie industry and it will only further encourage an Internet already ripe with pirated motion pictures.


Remember the movie 2012 where the White house was overcome by oncoming waves with the aircraft carrier JFK smashing into the White House? Maybe they were warning Obama that he might end up like JFK if he didn't follow their bidding.
