Google, FB, YT...These are clearly monopolies, all of which discriminate against any alternative or free press narrative. They openly operate no different than the interlocking directorates of the multinational corps - to block out dissent and swallow up competition.
They are the propositioned gatekeepers of research, memes, and thoughts.
The true problem, is that the Masses have been programed to TRUST Google, FB and YT. Which makes it even more difficult for any real effort for a start-up to compete. So the question is, in the absence of any real GOV attempt to stop these monopolies, what can be done?
We can use alternative, non-tracking search engines, but when it comes to media and business, people love and trust YT and FB like old friends. And it doesn't help that Vimeo and Daily Motion fail. Videos don't load, and often drop-out mid stream. LiveLeak at least functions fairly reliably, but because it is not categorized well, FINDING specific content is arduous.
BTW, I have been lurking here for quite some time, and please don't
take it personal if I don't register, its just not my style to do so.
