BMM by a Knock Out ! Last night Dutch reality TV and shocksploitation giants BMM ('Barts Never-ending Network) won the world 'tactical guerilla media championship' of the world with a stunning first round knock out. The unexpected result left the assembled world press, gathered last night at Hilversum stunned, as they stood eagerly waiting to gawk and to fulminate at the latest example of the Dutch commercial medias capacity to invent ever more outrageous reality TV. But in the dying moments of the event, the moral credibility tables were turned. The media world (not to mention the entire Dutch political establishment) were rocked and awed by the revelation that the world title (previously held by Orson Wells) for most daring media hoax now resides in the Netherlands.
Is this it? Have we reached it, tactical medias final frontier. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/6714287.stm David Garcia # distributed via <nettime>: no commercial use without permission # <nettime> is a moderated mailing list for net criticism, # collaborative text filtering and cultural politics of the nets # more info: [EMAIL PROTECTED] and "info nettime-l" in the msg body # archive: http://www.nettime.org contact: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
