"The Rebellion of the Medium Against the Bloody Message"

report

The medium rebels against the medium as a technical audio breakdown interrupts the live television broadcast of the 1976 U.S. Presidential Debate. I explore McLuhan's ideas through the relationship of the archived footage of the television medium and the new medium of self broadcast YouTube, where the footage was found. Sources: "Oracle of the Electronic Age", CBC; "CSpan media pool coverage of the 1976 U.S. Presidential Debate"; Title reference from "The Today Show" Sept. 24, 1976.

as a person who submitted an entry on time, and went within the rules, i personally feel this is the most McLuhanesque submission and should win first prize, second prize can go to either any of the power point presentations are the other clever literal interpretation, the automobile clip. the clip i made that wasn't accepted and can't be viewed, if in fact, the mystified gatekeepers who believe the whole fallacy is wrong would like to allow to be involved is located here: http://mcluhan.projects.fm/entry/5068883 i just wanted to be in the contest, i didn't expect to win, however i did expect to be accepted, i worked within the rules.
