So I’ve been stumbling over content by Means TV all over the place lately. I think their approach is very commendable, giving space and a voice to marginalized folks, delivering focused capitalist critiques and thought-through takes on a flat hierarchical basis.
I just wonder: Will it be enough? As it stands now, they’ve only funded 20% of their first year of programming. Of course it’s a harder sell when you aim to provide content for people on the margins who may not have the spare change to support such a cause, and with the money not being tax deductible even morally, ecologically and philosophically sound companies might hesitate to throw a few bucks their way.
What do you think about this venture? Too radical to attract enough attention? Still too far ahead of its time to gain meaningful traction?
