CBS2 Exclusive: Linden, N.J. Family Shocked When Drone Crashes Into House
Any of us in the UAV community are so used to this, we typically brush it off now, but we really can't afford to. There are people out there - News media journalists - who have the power to mass distribute HIGHLY BIASED information to those without firsthand knowledge of what this technology can and can't do. The anti-drone propagandists are doing a pretty good job of amplifying the fear and hatred towards these sophisticated but simple camera platforms.
Any of you who are frustrated at the unfair representation by the media of what is basically a still & video camera on a flying jib, should consider accepting a new challenge. We need to do everything we can to NOT stand silent for the bad press that we all know amounts to sensationalist horseshit.
In a decent and intelligent way, we should embarrass and shame these propagandists for every letter of misinformation they spew out to the world. You can do this by sharing these articles in blogs or forums and with good information, dissect them to expose their absurdity. Use Photoshop to create MEME images, YouTube, Facebook and any other platform to pass around video clips..etc
Keep in mind if you attack someone with your words, you're bound to be ignored. But if it's done in a smart or funny way, people will get the message without being turned off by some angry vile screed. Let the empty headed anti-drone brainiacs have that as their calling card.
In the meantime, here is a short clip with some interesting info that puts it all into perspective.
I love TWiT.tv. It's all geek related and they have audio and video versions of all their shows. You can watch on your Roku, Computer or any internet connected device that you can watch podcasts on. PadreSJ is a big UAV proponent and he has a few shows on TWiT.tv as well you can watch.
I'll even give you another link for the show the day before the one above to check out.
