The mainstream media today has the biggest disconnect with its audience that it’s ever, ever had. And as the disconnect grows and as more and more people distrust them, then the media digs in more and more and says you don’t know what you’re talking about, you don’t know how we do our jobs, you don’t know what’s important.

I use this method of communicating to appeal more to the skeptic, and those that are jaded by the mainstream mouthpieces, rather than preaching to the choir. A bit of dramatic music, video that is not “show and tell” and a license to stretch the imagination are the key tools here. It’s my rebel yell, my agitprop theatre, of the absurd world we live in… Patrick.
[ Editors Note: Dear readers, here is short and sweet one from Patrick, an old theme but with a delivery that brings it up to date as no one else can. When I saw his work I instantly knew that we needed a creative arts editor, and we were happy that he agreed to come aboard to add this important dimension to the VT mix… Jim W. Dean ]
Patrick Willis, aka “Snordster”, is a South African agitprop artist, art director, voice artist, film editor and media consultant. From his heady days as a tracker in the elite South African Special Forces 101 Battalion to the present day, he has always questioned the machine, the government, as a free man on the land. A citizen soldier in it’s truest sense, he fights back with his high tech modern weapons, his communication skills.
An outsider from an early age, he has crossed swords with autocracy with his countercultural journalism. Having spent almost 4 years with WTN News until 1989, he realised that mainstream journalism was dead, and a new audience was needed. The one million views Snordster YouTube channel has become notorious for its outrageous antics, rebellious, anti-authoritarian attitude, and unconventional reporting style to the delight of all of us.
After fighting on his own for many years, born out of his early years as Special Forces tracker, he has joined up with the merry band of rogue elements and seasoned warriors of Veterans Today as our creative arts editor. We are all veterans of the alternative media battle to claim some worldwide respect for the 4th estate away from the corrupt, penetrated and compromised corporate media empire that has become a national security threat in its own way to all of us.
