Site(s) of the Week/Month 20

leave a comment »

I like sites that are either informative or make me laugh, so when thinking about the site of week/month/unspecified time period, one particular site came to mind: Indy Media Watch

Its header explains it all:

“Indymedia was set up to fill a void in the corporate media. An idea I thought long overdue. Unfortunately, as a largely unmoderated, unrestricted medium it was promptly over-run by bigots, trolls and Nazis confusing free-speech with hate-speech. I believe the Indy Media experiment has failed. As Indymedia claims it keeps the corporate media honest, I decided it was time someone watched Indymedia instead. Be careful… You may not like what you see.”

It certainly keeps on a useful eye on the cranks!
