Why Is The Alternative Media Fighting Amongst Themselves?
March 6, 2013 in Entertainment
As a radio broadcaster on Internet radio, I’ve dealt with meaningless radio wars from ignorant broadcasters saying I’m not going to get anywhere as a broadcaster. That was nearly three years ago. I’ve managed to garner great network affiliateships with several media companies, three of which are Genesis Communications Network (2010 – Present; temporarily suspended agreement), Danny Romero’s American Freedom Radio (2013 – Present) and Pete Santilli’s Guerilla Media Network (2013 – Present).
But this recent turn of events over the past month or so has really pissed me off as a broadcaster. The recent behavior of Alex Jones has given me the assumption that he’s going mainstream, with as many appearances he has made in the lamestream media over the past month or so. His attitude has come to the point that he literally doesn’t give a damn about what he’s doing anymore.
And then there’s the fallout over the past two weeks between AFR’s Vincent Eastwood and GMN’s Pete Santilli – two people who were supposed to run Guerilla Media Network together with Vinny running the Australian operations, while Pete controlled the operations in the Americas. Then all of a sudden, poof – those plans changed. Then Vinny, along with someone who used to be affiliated with Santilli’s show, Susanne Posel from Occupy Corporatism, just decides to bash Santilli and call him a fraud.
I try to stay out of broadcaster wars between radio hosts, but I have come to this conclusion: everyone involved is being beyond unprofessional. You’re acting like immature jackasses. I don’t give two flying fucks if you’re some big name broadcaster like Alex Jones or a smaller broadcaster like Alex Ansary, Pete Santilli or Vinny Eastwood, when you claim to be a part of the independent alternative media, act like it.
Acting unprofessional by attacking someone’s personality based by unproven bullshit makes you more of a hypocritical jackass who would be better retrofitted for the biased and utterly retarded mainstream media.
This is merely the opinion of a radio broadcaster and you’re more than welcome to rip my words to pieces, but nothing you can say can destroy or damage the integrity of my eight years as a radio broadcaster (and nearing my sixth year in Internet radio). Just the basic truth: if you want to be the alternative media, at least be professional in what you do. Do your research and refrain from broadcasting lies during your broadcasts. (They’ll even tell you that shit in broadcasting school.)
