I don't know if it's me or what, but that site absolutely screams "conspiracy theorist" to me. Maybe it's the rhetoric.

Not conspiracy theorists

Sorry for the long delay in replying.

For whatever it's worth, I've never caught Open Media spouting bullshit. And the TPP is very real and (to my mind) very dangerous. To labour rights, to environmental protection, to a huge chunk of signatory nations' abilities to decide on their own national or state/provincial policies about just about anything that gets in the way of business and the free-flow of capital. It's about a lot more than freedom of the internet, but for obvious reasons that's Open Media's focus.

Meanwhile, I urge you to do a little research on the Trans Pacific Partnership. Granted, it's the sort of issue that draws conspiracy nuts out of the woodwork like honey draws flies and there's not a whole hell of a lot being published in the mainstream press. One place you might want to start is with the Green Party via http://www.greenparty.ca/tpp/learn-more (crossing my fingers you think they are no worse than a biased, but non-crazy source).
