Former Senator Chris Dodd, now head of the Motion Picture Association of America (motto: “You can only be our leader if you’re a male with a full head of white hair”), issued a statement attacking the websites that are participating in today’s strike/blackout. It says, in part, “It’s a dangerous and troubling development when the platforms that serve as gateways to information intentionally skew the facts to incite their users in order to further their corporate interests.”
You got that? The whore who fronts for an industry owned by multinational megacorporations like NewsCorp, Sony, and Viacom is actually attacking BoingBoing.net owners Happy Mutants LLC for using the internet for some evil agenda to steal Chipmunk movies just because they went on a one-day strike. That’s a bit like Ted Bundy accusing a student nurse of having a messy dorm room just before bludgeoning her to death.
