Blogumentary, “Personal political writing is the foundation of our democracy”

BLOGUMENTARY playfully explores the many ways blogs are influencing our media, our politics, and our relationships. Personal political writing is the foundation of our democracy, but mass media has reduced us to passive consumers instead of active citizens. Blogs return us to our roots and reengage us in democracy. Shot in candid first-person style by director Chuck Olsen. NOTE: This film is presented here for non-profit, educational use only.

I’m sick of the slamming the blogosphere gets from the mainstream media and the political regime. When you whittle it down, what exactly is this? Well, it’s the powerful few chastising the many for engaging in their democratic right. Remember that next time you think about buying a Sunday paper or watching “the news”.

A light hearted exploration and celebration of the blog.
