MSNBC hosts Chris Hayes of All In and Rachel Maddow of The Rachel Maddow Show reflect on how frustrating it is to not be able to have a rational discussion about regulating the machinery that permits the kind of carnage that occured in Las Vegas, where nearly 600 people were killed or injured in a mass shooting on October 1st. For other kinds of machinery, be it airplanes or automobiles, we have been able to address the issues that cause fatalities and have devised regulations and operational policies to minimize or prevent them. For the machinery of weapons, not so much.
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.
