Media indictment

by Critical Commons Manager

Mainstream media are implicated in the violent mistreatment of women in this scene from Born in Flames. After a group of whistle-blowing feminists on ten speed bicycles foils an attempted broad daylight assault in New York City, a news broadcast reports that women vigilantes are in fact terrorizing innocent men on the street. This egregious miscarriage of journalistic responsibility provides part of the justification for later blowing up the broadcast antenna on top of the World Trade Center towers.

The actions of "vigilante" feminists on ten speeds are twisted and trivialized by TV news
