 Blue Bayou: Media Watch Archives
Accuracy in Media is a pretty questionable source for any kind of serious media information; their methods for tracking "liberal media bias" rely heavily on measuring US media consumers' perceptions of bias, rather than trying to analyze what's being reported in any remotely objective way.
So I turned to Media Transparency's rundown of grants to Galen, where it becomes clear that this is a lobbying group supported by the usual gang of conservative donors.
The crime list did have the benefit of being created from a fairly straightforward data set; while differences in the natures of the cities being examined made it problematic, it wasn't totally silly.

 AEI - Events
From the time I entered the agency in 1975, through the 1990s, open-source reporting--press, media, Saddam's speeches, expertise from many different sources, anything in the public domain--was always a rich source of information, especially on Iraq, which was a virtually totally denied area for so long.
And I would say that the dots around that particular event were certainly a lot less clear than the constellation that we have that is this connection.
And while we're not talking about a specific event necessarily, we're talking about a relationship that I think was threatening and that I think presented a unique threat, given the history of both al Qaeda and Saddam.

 Mockumentary Flap by Ron Steinman- The Digital Journalist
Today, though, with much happening so fast in our society dominated by mass media, some so-called documentary filmmakers believe they need all the help they can get to hold an audience as they tell their story.
Audiences do not understand that the people who run these networks and the production companies that serve them also wish to be entertained, and they do not want to go broke doing it.
At times, the documentary can and does succeed honestly for past events for which the camera was not present.

King lists the manifesto’s participants: José de la Colina, Rafael Corkidi, Salvador Elizondo, J.M. Garcia Ascot, Carlos Monsiváis, Alberto Isaac, Paul Leduc and Fernando Macoltela, all of whom would become “the most important film-makers, critics and chroniclers of the next twenty years.
The events of 1968 further galvanized the artistic and academic communities upon which the Filmoteca is founded.
Indeed, UNAM sets an example of accessibility, fulfilling the archival mission of, as Claes describes it, “spreading the culture and aesthetic of these media and ensuring that, in a sea channel of surfing and cyber-shopping, both present and future generations do not forget the true meaning of cinema” (Claes, 110).

 iMedia Connection: Alternate Reality Gaming 101
Many more agencies and brands are starting to adapt ARG tactics of stealth marketing, microsites, big stakes contests and real world special events in a hybrid campaign to capture the cache of Augmented Reality Branding and encourage pull tactics that encourage players to tell the story to other players versus outdated "push" campaigns.
Agency and brand budgets for online and new media continue to grow, but there is no source chronicling the rise of ARG advertising and sponsorship because the funds are often dispersed across such silos as special events, promotion, guerilla marketing and sweepstakes budgets.
According to the Chicago-based IEG Sponsorship surveys, North American companies spent an estimated $5 billion of their $11.1 billion events budget on experiential marketing in 2004 with a projected 25 percent increase forecast annually beginning last year.

As the Events wound down, the Revolutionary Action Committee of the Sorbonne published a brochure containing leaflets it had composed during the movement and commentaries on their use.
What we do know is that the Events launched a whole new approach to politics that lives to this day and that has born fruit in the many social movements around technical issues in such different domains as medicine, the environment, and computerization.
I think Sartre had the deepest insight into the May Events when he described them as "enlarging the field of the possible." What the May events did was to lift the barriers to imaginatively approaching advanced societies and the many technical and administrative obstacles to democratic participation they set up.
