Resisting the Empire critiques the media's coverage of the War in Iraq (Gulf War II). Produced by the Paper Tiger TV collective in the spring of 2003 soon after the US invasion of Iraq in response to the lack of alternative perspectives on the war available through the mainstream media. This production provides a brief history of US foreign policy and military involvement abroad, looks at the corporate media's inadequate coverage of the peace movement and resistance to the war, deconstructs flashy techniques used to illustrate military intervention on the major networks and gives some information on how to get involved in activism for peace in your own community.

Alliance for Community Media says FCC Cable Vote Will Harm Local Media

The proposed rules would allow cable companies to assign market values to these benefits and then charge the amount back to local communities in most cases. Benefits include items like free cable subscriptions to schools, discounts for the elderly, and fiber connectivity to local government buildings like police departments, fire stations, and libraries.
