Trump’s Video Is Evidence that Liberty Is Winning

This is an interesting article for a whole bunch of reasons, but for me it’s particularly interesting as Jeff Tucker has been an outspoken critic, very outspoken, of Trump from a libertarian perspective.

This post goes well with the previous post we did on the media.

Now this is very interesting. The president-elect in a transition might normally address the American people through network television. This is how it has normally been done. Donald Trump took another path. His transition team snagged a free YouTube channel, set up a camera, and pushed out a 2-and-a-half minute video on his transition priorities (which didn’t include health care, by the way). It’s had a million views in less than 24 hours.

Think of the significance of this. The incoming president is using exactly the same technology that you and I have in our pocket.

What a transformation! FDR ruled the American mind through his special access to radio (his “fireside chats”). This continued through the rise of network television. The monopoly was only recently smashed. Forget the satellite hookups, press contacts, prime-time scheduling, and the rest of the apparatus that privileged the powerful in the past.

This is what the #oldmedia fears. They have lost the information monopoly.
