I see posts on this and other sites all the time saying "The media dosen't respect LSU" and people bitching about the liberal media and the right wing media, yada yada yada. In the era before the internet the "media" was TV, radio, magazines and newspapers and was distinctly separate from us "the people" Since it is now posible for anybody to state their opinion, argue their point, spread rumors, diseminate lies and disinformation or to tell the God's only Truth as they see it, does that make us all "members of the media"? Anybody with a computer and at least a dialup connection can say whatever they feel like it for all the world to see. The readership of any post on a forum like this one is limited only by the popularity of the website and the number of people who click on it. Sure, most websites have an audience confined to the demographics of the level of interest in the sites focus but didn't Matt Druge become a paid member of the "media" only because of the popularity of his website? Tigerforums is a site devoted to LSU sports that also includes the Alley section devoted to political discussion. While Tigerforums is of interest mostly to fans of LSU and opponents of LSU thousands of people worldwide read what we post every day. All of us are free to put up any website we want and do whatever it takes to attract viewers and members. Sure, the networks and cable media as well as every magazine and newspaper all have their own websites but they are much less interactive than forums such as this one. Anybody who reads what I have just said can instantly respond with a "Hey, you're right" or a "You're full of sh*t" Try that on Larry King's or Bill O'Reillys sites and see if it ever gets posted. We have met the media and it is us.
