Question of the Day: Who pays for the unCoolCleveland Dynasty And Why?
Submitted by Norm Roulet on Sat, 04/24/2010 - 14:57.
I just stumbled through the stark, ghost-town of Ed-and-Hunter-Morrison-self-promoting formerly George-Nemeth-self-promoting Brewed Fresh Daily land, and over to the neon lights of the glitzy apparently paid product placement based unCoolCleveland dynasty, now featuring original low budget video programming called NEOtropolis... after I finished puking, a lot, I wondered who pays for this unCoolCleveland Dynasty and why? Who really believes such propaganda may be real? Or cool? Or helpful for our economy?
Propaganda corrupts free markets - this is a bunch of commie bullshit. The money wasted on all this may be used for far better things!
These people may be very wealthy from their "social media consulting", and so are funding all this unCoolness brewed daily themselves, but this dynasty seems more like a bunch of day jobs, meaning these people and their supporters are paid to propagandize... it is a bunch of paid product placement advertising... by whom?
Is any public funding supporting all this, as I really question it having any value to the community, and I believe it causes the community harm?!
Any 3rd Frontier money wasted here?
Anyone who knows me knows I am entirely dissatisfied by the state of this social media "leadership" here, and my volunteer work for realNEO is in stark contrast to the work of other social media "experts" in town - and my work has not been supported by any of the people now funded to create propaganda, and has been harmed by them.
So, to avoid being seen as like or supportive of them, I will always go to great lengths to draw the distinctions between unCool social media and realNEO, as we of realNEO continue to grow and change the world, and the unCool world remains unCool.
As a closing observation, I recall in the beginning of unCoolCleveland the dynasty was largely funded by product placements for all the unsmart tax-abated urban developments around Tremont and downtown... you have them to thank for the hype that has made much of Cleveland so uncool, and poor.
Propaganda corrupts marketplaces, leading to inefficiencies and unwise speculation, as has been at the core of community development here. Stop the propaganda machines, and the markets may correct themselves.
