A Shocking Failure to Roll Over and Die - Vox Popoli

 The media is alarmed by the construction of “an entire conservative ecosystem”.

Conservatives are aggressively building their own apps, phones, cryptocurrencies and publishing houses in an attempt to circumvent what they see as an increasingly liberal internet and media ecosystem.

Why it matters: Many of these efforts couldn’t exist without the backing of major corporate figures and billionaires who are eager to push back against things like “censorship” and “cancel culture.”

The bottom line: Conservative media has been a powerhouse for a long time, but this phase of its expansion isn’t just about more or louder conservative voices — it’s about building an entire conservative ecosystem.

If they’re alarmed by the efforts of the gatekeepers to keep conservatives on an alternative plantation, imagine how freaked out they’re going to be when they realize the institutions that actually matter aren’t being built by conservatives and aren’t being controlled by either the Prometheans or their conservative pets.

On a not-unrelated note, you can now add additional subscriptions to your own account, including gift subscriptions for other people that will provide them with their own account, on UATV. And speaking of apps, they are coming in January for Android, iOS, and Roku.
