Media category in the OS X file chooser

Either I’ve never recognized it before, or Apple published this new feature with their latest OS X update.

There is now a Media category in the standard OS file chooser that lets you choose movies, pictures and music, pulling it straight from the respective iApp’s library (iTunes, iPhoto etc.). I think this is a really helpful addition. Thanks Apple for making OS X a bit better again :)

US Media manipulation

SPINI just watched an hour long documentary called “SPIN” by Brian Springer (read more details about it here). He set up numerous satellite dishes back in the 90ties to watch and record the satellite feeds that the big media companies used to deliver their material from the point where it was shot to their broadcasting headquarters. Those feeds are the unedited versions of the events they where covering and so Brian Springer could see and hear a lot of things that weren’t broadcasted later on national television.
This film basically shows us how characters are set up via media channels for the population to believe whatever those characters tell you on your TV. The events of the 1992 election draw a very dark picture about what was said in public and who and what really was behind the scenes.
And that was back in the 90ties just imagine how much more advanced media manipulation techniques are today judging from how far they already where ten years ago.

Seeing this really got me thinking about television in the US again. I’ve already written about another story concerning this matter a while back (Bush â??planted fake news stories on American TVâ??). How can all the people there sit still when they must know that they are being manipulated in such an obvious way. How can they not stand up and boycott this whole web of lies. Are US citizens really that lazy that they don’t care about the truth anymore because it is easier to dwell in a lie?

I can just suggest to everyone to watch this film, it’s a real eye opener. I found it on “Chaos TV” in the Podcast Directory of the iTunes Store. It is episode 74 of Chaos TV and the full name there is “CTV074 Spin”. Or watch it on Google Video.

So that’s my call to all people out there:
Stop watching TV!
Don’t just sit back and passively consume made up stories about how your surroundings should look like. Use the power you’ve got, use the Internet!
Go out and search for information yourself and please don’t use any of the big media companies for your research.
