The Power of Trickle-Up Journalism



http://www.bioneers.org/node/2195



The Power of Trickle-Up Journalism
by Amy Goodman



It is absolutely critical that we
have an independent media. The media
are the most powerful institutions
on earth, more powerful than any bomb,
than any missile. The Pentagon has
deployed the media and we have to
take it back.


My brother David Goodman and I have
written Static: Government Liars,
Media Cheerleaders, and the People
Who Fight Back. Why the title Static?
Because in this high tech digital age,
with high definition television and
digital radio, all we get is ever more
static, that veil of lies,
misrepresentations, half-truths, and
omissions that obscure reality.


What we need is a different kind of
static. The media should be giving
the dictionary definition of static,
and that is “criticism, opposition,
unwanted interference.” We need a
media that covers power, not covers
for power. We need a media that is
the fourth estate, not for the state.
And we need a media that covers the
movements that create static and make
history.


At Democracy Now! our motto is,
“Steal this story, please.” We call
it “trickle up journalism.” One example
is the story of Raed Jarrar, an Iraqi
architect and blogger who now lives
in this country. He was boarding a
Jet Blue plane from New York City to
San Francisco, where he lived, when
he found himself surrounded by four
transportation officials. They told
him he couldn’t get on the plane if
he was going to wear this t-shirt.


When he asked the transportation
officials what was wrong with his
t-shirt, they said they thought it
was threatening. He was wearing a
black t-shirt with white letters
that said, “We will not be silent.”
