Mainstream Media Watch

Welcome to Media Watch,

We at ZCom of course provide media, yet we are definitively not in the mainstream. What swims there are corporate and governmental entities that overwhelmingly - when presenting news and social analysis at all - take as a given support for elite machinations and maintanence of elite structures. Understanding this system supporting media, dissecting its deceptive manipulations, combating its oppressive implications, and pressuring it to contain better even against its own inclinations, is the aim of our attention to mainstream media - as well as, in time, replacing it in toto.

Here too, however, you will find articles and content about alternative media - its efforts, logic, etc.

Please send any ideas you may have for other or additional content from our database you think ought to appear in content boxes on this page.

Thank You.
