It’s produced by the Hudson Mohawk independent media center.
Who’s paying them? Every news organization has modivation and financial backing for everything they do, both Fox News and Hudson Mohawk. They did not make this video because they felt like it.
They made this video because they knew people like you would run out and buy it. And even if you didn’t buy it, you are now promoting their video company for FREE. So don’t tell me they didn’t get anything for making this.

As far as I know, independent media is financed thru voluntary public contributions. That may be hard for you to perceive, but there are people out there who have other priorities than becoming rich. Open-source being the most striking example of people sticking it to corporations.
Below is the mission statement of the Hudson Mohawk Independent Media Center
“The Independent Media Center is a global network of collectively run media outlets for the creation of radical, accurate, and passionate tellings of truth. We are motivated by a love and inspiration for people who work for a better world despite corporate media’s distortions and unwillingness to cover efforts to develop an egalitarian and sustainable society. The Hudson Mohawk Independent Media Center is a grassroots organization committed to using media production and distribution as tools for promoting social and economic justice in the Hudson Mohawk Area. We are dedicated to addressing issues that the mainstream media neglects and we do not conceal our politics behind a false objectivity. We will empower people to “become the media” by providing democratic access to available technologies and information.”
Since you brought up Fox, the following video is a MUST SEE.
How do you think Wikipedia functions? The same applies here. You contribute money or time if you REALLY like what they do.
They are distributing the video freely and if you really want to help them, you send in a few bucks. But that has nothing to do with the way corporations force you to cough money BEFORE seeing a movie or listening to a CD.
On a related topic, you may wanna check this radio station that functions on the same principle.
That’s also why I read The Guardian, run Linux and licence all my work under the GPL or Creative Commons.
Darn! You tricked me into turning this into a copyright thread. Oh well…
