Congress was seen on Periscope, a live streaming video app that allows anybody to send a video of their immediate surroundings. IMG_7002

The Late Show had a short segment mentioning that Paul Ryan declared a recess and cut off the live feed of CSPAN when the democrats started their sit-in on gun control. Fortunately, Periscope allowed people to share video of the events.

There is a sit-in in the House of Representatives we would barely know about if it wasn’t for alternative forms of media. Doesn’t that bring all of our mainstream medium into question?

If one side can be silenced, what good is listening at all?
