Steven Kerzner (@stevenjkerzner) and Stephen Lautens (@stephenlautens) discuss the chicken-or-egg question: did all these idiotic people doing idiotic things for social media 'fame' always exist, or has the lure of social media status pushed them toward greater & more dangerous (and stupid) acts they wouldn't do if their narcissism wasn't rewarded? Plus, the erasure of the line between 'famous & 'infamous' - how long ago did that start decaying to the point that a uniquely American mindset now infects Canadians?
Tin Cup time!
You think we like relying on you for funding?That we wouldn't rather get sponsors or grants or the like? But those come with strings attached. More like ropes than strings.
We want to remain honest, authentic and independent to bring you honest, authentic but fun programming. The right has an unending source of business capital, most of it shady, to use media to spoon-feed the public half-truths and full-out lies to re-shape our thinking to serve their divisive, greedy ends. So whose side are you on? If you pick us, and want to preserve & grow resistance to right-wing propagandized media, while supporting honest, peer-level intelligent & fun dialogue on important matters - support us! While we're fighting for the soul of your brain!
