Vote for a TNS bumper sticker slogan

The TNS collective has been batting around slogans for a bumper sticker, and we would appreciate your input. Below are the four slogans we're considering. Please let us know which one you might stick on your car. Or if you have a suggestion of your own, we're all ears!

1. CORPORATE MEDIA EATS OUR DUST

2. I KNOW SOMETHING YOU DON'T KNOW

3. GIVE THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA THE FINGER - Click www.newstandardnews.net

4. THE NEWS I TRUST ISN'T OWNED BY CORPORATIONS

5. OWN YOUR NEWS





 

Comments...

peggym: bumper suggestion

News to inform not persuade.

Semanik: TNS bumper sticker suggestion

THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE - click www.newstandardnews.net

ericthebarbaric:

I like "Own Your News". It would be even better if you added the New Standard web address somewhere on it.

lovekiki: love it

i like 3 and 4, particularly 3.

ricventura: Yo

4 without a doubt!

nganga1: bumper sticker

Don't rent yourself to the media, keep your mind commmercial free

aristides: number 5

I think that "own your news" is short and to the point

edgwize: #4 rules!

Definitely # 4. The others appeal to a younger audience, but # 4 will actually provoke some thought.

ReggieM:

I like FAIR's Slogan: "Don't Trust The Corporate Media".

"Non-Corporate, No Commercials"

"Who Owns Your News?"

"Not Corporate Toadies"

Otherwise, number 4.

Brian Dominick: Address will be included

Our domain (web address) will be included on the bumper sticker -- or one that is catchier that leads to our front page.

Rexbeck:

I like 2 and 5...short and pithy...

DNAtsol: preferences

I'm a fan of #4. It's actually very similar to the masthead I gave my own personal newspaper home page

If not these, how about

The NewStandard, the new standard (web address) or Life is about balance, read The NewStandard

My 2 cents DNATSOL

admiral: Truthiness

I like, "I Know Some Things You Don't Know"

or, "'Truthiness' Sucks!"

or, "News: Pure and Unfiltered"

or, "Unadulterated News"

or, "Keep Your Company Out of My Head"

Anonymous fan: How about...

A play on "for sale" signs you often see on cars: "My media is not for sale."

chingyehchen:

I like #2 and #4, #2 makes you curious; #4 makes you think.

Darryl Hamson: Bumper Sticker vote

I think #4 is the best -- it invites a thoughtful response.

RadRobin:

Hmmm. I would use:

The Truth Will Set You Free!

Since Americans seem so in love with 'freedom' and all....

admiral: On that note,...

On that note, how about, "Freedom from the Press"?

leftist: 2 cents

Corporate Media Represents Who??? Not You!!!

Semanik:

Most are good, but too wordy: a bumper sticker has even tigheter requirements as a billboard: it's gotta' be VERY short and comprehensible at 70 mph. Another suggestion:

NEWS--NOT VIEWS NewStandard.com

puquerda: 4 iz good

Or imagine Zack de la Rocha screaming

"No More Lies" newstandardnews.net

p1d1s1: Suggestion

Information, Not Indoctrination

Eric Patton:

2 is smarmy, 1 is bland, 4 sounds like one of those Christian knock-offs of mainstream ad slogans, 5 is confusing.

I like the idea behind 3, but it's too wordy. Instead, I recommend "Screw corporate media." It's abrasive, and working-class people will love it.

jamielejeune: Nothing beats #3

#3 is by far my favorite. But, since I don't (and never plan to) own a car, I wonder do you have any plans for a bike (or helmet) sized sticker?

abielefisher:

#4 is memorable and to the point without sounding preachy or pedantic.

zombie1334:

#4 seems to me to be the best.

nkarres: The shorter...

I agree shorter is better. Personally I like Patton's modified #3 "Screw Corporate Media." Probably should be come in two flavors for different folks: nice and abrasive, and pensive and poignant. And another vote for bike stickers... screw corporate media and screw cars even more.

wickramasekera: #4 Variation

4. THE NEWS I TRUST ISN'T OWNED BY CORPORATIONS

Maybe a variation of #4?

The New Standard: News untouched by corporate funds
