I know I swear until very recently the only mainstream media I knew of which talked about was the local fox news of Atlanta
That being said I hope that the sudden interest displayed by people and institutions outside of locals and anti authoritarians won't lead to coopting the movement
I think the benefit of added pressure will outweigh the risk of cooption in this situation... Or at least I hope so
Triple-edged sword. The only coverage before was from either activists or fascists. And because activists have been practicing the ol' slow and steady with Atlanta decision-makers, and making some marginal gains, the mainstream news media could potentially and intentionally sabotage this progress in public opinion, if they wanted to.
Thank god it's getting more coverage, they've only been at it for over a year ...
