  1. Cowardly New World: Alternative Media Under Attack by Algorithms
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2017
    An insidious assault is underway against alternative media on the internet. Leftist and progressive websites have been suffering significant declines in traffic. Some have had online income sources cut. Many others have been publicly defamed.
    The only voices speaking the truth, says Kollibri terre Sonnenblume, are those on the fringes and we must amplify them however we can. Some suggestions:
    * Read/view alternative media stories and share them in whatever venues you can.
    * Stop consuming mainstream media and stop posting links to it.
    * Actively support alternative media by donating money, time or other resources.
    * Stop using Google as your search engine; I recommend DuckDuckGo. You will be surprised at how much you've been missing.
    * Become the media: take your own photos or video and write up stories yourself for whatever outlet will take your work, even if that's only your own blog.
