A Little Backstory
Media communication can be a powerful tool in the way it influences people and affects change. Problem is that no media is truly independant and the content can sometimes be manipulated, changed or hidden to the public to satisfy a particular group in power.
How can we ensure absolute independance to media as well as free quality content to people?
Create a solution or a new model for medias to produce and distribute content that is free of any influence by government or corporate interests.
