Working Assets Media: Corporate Media In Disguise?

by bob feldman Thursday, Aug. 17, 2000 at 10:40 PM

Is Working Assets media really a for-profit corporate alternative media?

Despite yet another Democratic Party Establishment-authorized LA police attack on non-violent protesters tonight, Working Assets-sponsored media seem to generally censor the various perspectives of most U.S. revolutionary Movement activists in its Democratic National Convention week protest coverage. One reason may be because Working Assets Inc. is a for-profit telecommunications corporation. Only a fraction of the 0 million in annual revenues that Working Assets Inc. collects from its exploitation of consumers is actually donated to U.S. social change groups. And Working Assets Inc. apparently refuses to make public the annual compensation it gives to its top corporate executives.

Working Assets Inc.'s apparent use of both the anti-corporate Movement and certain independent media centers as an additional marketing tool for Working Assets Inc.'s business/media empire-building activity contradicts the traditional anti-profit/non-profit/anti-commercial goals of the U.S. Movement and the independent U.S. revolutionary media.

The Movement belongs to the people--not to Working Assets Inc.

End corporate-sponsored alternative media censorship of revolutionary U.S. Movement voices.

Revolution Now in the USA.
