Reason.tv—which is part of the Reason Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) charitable-research and educational foundation—seeks to provide compelling stories about freedom from all corners of the Internet. However, the videos posted on the Reason.tv website do not approach freedom as flag waving, July 4th parades and fireworks, rather it seeks to expose government suppression of the freedoms it should be upholding.
Reason.tv has a group of talented staff who produce videos, but one of its strengths is it accepts video submissions for consideration from anyone. “If you’ve created a good video that has anything to do with free minds and free markets, you’re invited to send it our way,” Reason.tv says. All submissions are reviewed, a decision made whether to post it or not. Among the videos currently posted are “The Constitutional Case for Marriage Equality”; “Agricultural Subsidies: Corporate Welfare for Farmers”; and “Killer Chic: Hollywood’s Sick Love Affair with Che Guevara.”
In addition, Reason.tv boasts The Drew Carey Project, which is a series of video documentaries that take a hard look at government reactions to issues such as medical marijuana, school choice, eminent domain and big government. New videos in that series are released on or about the 1st and 15th of each month.
For using the Internet to expose government policies that suppress freedoms, Reason.tv is Government Video’s Website of the Week.
