From One Psycopath To Another: Journalists Have Proven They Need Help From Bitcoiners — Here’s What That Can Look Like
Look, I’m hardly going to take the NY Post seriously.
Or whatever the daily FUD is. We’re either psychopaths or shadowy super coders. We’re pillaging the Earth so we are wrong, say people who would rather buy an ugly monkey JPEG and put their money into coins named after dogs and pumped by Elon that will surely leave them rekt.
As we Bitcoiners continue to take the heat.
It’s Up To Us To Contribute To Changing The Narrative
This doesn’t need to be a freakin’ circus. C’mon, Bitcoiners. We’re the adults in charge here.
Bitcoin is a revolution with social, financial, economical, and historical aspects. WE know this. I think we also suck at translating this to the normies who still think this is “trading on an app.”
Dude. People don’t even know what this really is or WHY we’re doing it. So of course the media coverage sucks! They don’t even have the tools to understand money!
We Have To Give Them The Tools
At a minimum, we need to give journalists the basics on how to cover Bitcoin:
- Stop calling it “crypto”
- It’s lightning, not rails. Looking at you, 60 Minutes
- Bitcoin isn’t bad for the environment
- This isn’t trading or investing
- A lens of privilege affects bias (duh 🙄). Looking at you, the United States with the luxury of reserve currency…
Next, We Build a Database of Bitcoin Comms Folks
Journalists need sources. Let’s serve them up on a silver platter.
Or they’ll keep interviewing the “crypto experts.”
Which keeps costing those who stand to benefit most from Bitcoin adoption. People flock to what’s most trendy & popular, not what’s right and that’s exactly what’s happening as so many get sucked into scams and energy FUD.
Let’s do what we can to help stop the media from stealing their future.
