When I hear talk in the news of when we might expect to see a GOP tax bill, the time frame appears to be “two weeks”. Chris Hayes on his MSNBC program “All In” even had a segment that featured multiple news clips showing how often that unit of measurement is used by our current president. I suspect our contemporary grifter is channeling the 1986 comedy classic “The Money Pit”. Tom Hanks or Shelley Long fans will remember the scenes where estimates by the Shirk brothers crew of how long any particular event would take were always “two weeks”.
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
