We report, you decide. So, Oxford has a new branch of Indymedia. The independent media movement is an interesting sociological phenomenon. In theory, there's nothing wrong with a readership-run news site--but there's also no particular reason to expect it to get things right, either. And one has to worry about the judgment of the Indymedia readership, especially when the only comment on filth like this is "Good artwork."

Yet IndyMedia is often good for entertainment value, at least; it's refreshing to read the words of those innocents who have not yet learned the difference between principled opposition and self-parody. After all, "rather than bombing Iraq into subservience," says activist Toby Olditch, "Liberation from a brutal dictator would be better served by non violent conflict resolution."
