B Media jumped into the cultural meme game with a parody of Hitler advocating for fluoride in Portland’s public water system. The debate over fluoridating Portland’s water system will come to a vote this month.  Read what the WWeek had to say about the film parody. In terms of fluoridation, B Media’s core beliefs are rooted in the power and necessity of transformative, community-led change. As a result, we fundamentally disagree with Measure 26 –151 requiring the fluoridation of Portland’s […]

People from across the country are converging in Helena, the capital of Montana, for a week of activity aimed at stopping the “best last place” from becoming the new “coal ground zero.” Coal industry giants are pushing members of the Montana State Land Board to let them build the Otter Creek mine, the “anchor project” in a larger industry scheme to transform southeast Montana and northeast Wyoming into a coal mining industrial zone. King Coal has used money to influence […]
