"The revolution will not be televised"

Depende do ponto de vista. Para quem considera que a grande mídia não está comprometida com a isenção e que a internet trouxe uma opção à TV, faz todo sentido. Mas ainda quero acreditar que o contrário também é possível: se a mídia é feita por pessoas, será tão difícil fazermos cumprir a função de utilidade pública dos meios de comunicação, usando a receita dos anunciantes para patrocinar esta “revolução"? Anyway, o vídeo é bacana de qualquer jeito.


(Gil Scott-Heron - born April 1, 1949 - is an American poet, musician, and author known primarily for his late 1960s and early 1970s work as a spoken word soul performer and his collaborative work with musician Brian Jackson.[1] His collaborative efforts with Jackson featured a musical fusion of jazz, blues and soul music, as well as lyrical content concerning social and political issues of the time, delivered in both rapping and melismatic vocal styles by Scott-Heron. The music of these albums, most notably Pieces of a Man and Winter in America in the early 1970s, influenced and helped engender later African-American music genres such as hip hop and neo soul. Scott-Heron's recording work is often associated with black militant activism and has received much critical acclaim for one of his most well-known compositions "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised". On his influence, a music writer later noted that "Scott-Heron's unique proto-rap style influenced a generation of hip-hop artists".[2] Fonte: Wikipedia)
