Full Steem Ahead: Anti-Media Joins the Steemit Revolution

in introduceyourself •  6 months ago

amsteem

Anti-Media’s evolution from a fiercely independent news blog to the Homepage of Independent Media continues, and Steemit is our next evolutionary step. Our journey started in 2012 when our founder, Nick Bernabe, launched a small, anti-establishment Facebook page with a rudimentary meme created in MS Paint.

This grew into millions of social media followers, hundreds of millions of visits to our website, and our memes have been seen billions of times. Anti-Media kickstarted the 2013 #NoWarWithSyria decentralized anti-war movement off the back of a single meme, which manifested into protests across 50 cities in the U.S. and around the world. Some people are still sporting the profile picture we created for the movement on social media.

Anti-Media is a non-partisan, adversarial news/graphics publisher and crowd-curated media aggregator staffed by numerous anarchists and activists who want to change the world by setting it free (you can see some of our more well-known graphics below). But let’s just say the Internet’s media gatekeepers don’t exactly encourage keeping government, politicians, and their corporate welfare beneficiaries accountable to the public, nor do they endorse demolishing the statist mindset and ideology that props up these power structures.

Though we’ve long enjoyed success on traditional social media platforms, in the last couple of years our ability to reach people has changed drastically.

We’ve seen our articles documenting war crimes de-monetized by Google. We’ve had our Facebook page banned for calling out politicians on their lies. We’ve seen YouTube videos, including those by our editor-in-chief, stripped of ads for not being “brand safe” or politically correct. And Reddit shadowbanned us after our investigation of Nestle’s state-sanctioned theft of California drinking water went viral and made it to the front page — twice!

It’s not exactly lucrative these days to challenge the status quo and ask the toughest questions. Soft corporate censorship is at an all-time high as Facebook, Google, and YouTube continue their war on independent content creators, and the federal government continues to take steps to undermine independent media in general. But we hope to overcome these challenges and keep spreading the message of freedom by joining the Steemit community.

Several of our journalists are already on Steemit, including Carey Wedler ( @careywedler), Derrick Broze ( @dbroze), Jake Anderson ( @jakeofthefoliage), and Darius Shahtahmasebi ( @realdariuss), and they have found a receptive, enthusiastic community that is passionate not only about changing the centralized, statist paradigm but also actually using technology to make a tangible difference. Anti-Media is excited to be a part of this disruptive effort because we know cryptocurrencies and decentralized blockchain technology are changing the world for the better. We’ve decided it’s time for us to be part of this amazing solution rather than relying on government-aligned platforms like Facebook and Google.

image 6

From this point on, we will dedicate a substantial portion of our editorial resources to Steemit exclusively, and with the help of Steemians, we’ll bring hard-hitting, professionally edited and fact-checked news to the Steemit community.

We will be dedicating less and less of our resources to centralized social media, and we’ll be leveraging our 2 million+ followers on to Steemit. It’s full Steem ahead for Anti-Media.

This is Stephanie from Heavy! Welcome Anti-Media! Glad to see you on here! :) Will definitely be following you closely. You're a great independent media source for sure. I've known about the Facebook and YouTube issues, but I had no idea you were shadowbanned on Reddit. That's crazy. :( Well, that certainly won't be happening here on Steemit, the home of freedom and independent thinking. :)

·

Thanks Stephanie, and thanks for supporting our work with the G3 Group too :) Following you back as well!

You're a lawyer and an author -- so am I! Following you! Do you still practice law? I'm a full-time writer myself now, but I find my law education certainly improved my writing and my ability to see multiple angles on a topic.

Ever since I saw that movie based on the 1999 WTO protest in Seattle Ive been extremely interested in what goes on behind the scenes that for some reason always seem to be hidden from mainstream media. battle in seattle.jpgDecentralization is the new weapon.

<3 Hey now! Pretty awesome start! <3

Welcome aboard! I decided recently to just be a passive watcher on Facebook. My broadcast posts were not really winning people out of their statriotism. I still read some posts from “woke” friends who are great with words. I just joined mewe for chat with voluntaryists and also joined minds - as a passive reader and I subscribed to your minds feed. Essentially I stopped broadcasting to the willful ignorant. My own preference is one on one persuasion at the workplace, at the coffee shop, at the pub, at the gym, on the bike path. When you are face to face, body language, expressions, and emotions attract open mindedness from others and interpersonal communication is really a very undervalued persuasive tool that internet sorely lacks. Plus when you interact in person the audience is a “captive audience” and cannot just scroll down to the next message. I regard you, Anti-Media, as an important source of alternative media, far more credible than tabloid ZeroHedge. I hope you stay that way. I like using your information and I check your sources.

Good blog ..
I am really appreciate to see this post ...
Carry on. best of luck dear

This is timely indeed - looking forward to the ensuing discussion on Anti-Media articles. Now I just need to get the site I write for, Independent Australia, on Steemit.

Anti-Media is a non-partisan, adversarial news
and anarchist too?
Gawd I hope so. I just UNFollowed a couple of 'adversarial journalists' who are new to Steem who are actually leftists.

I've just followed you and your whole crew.
Don't let me down.
