Report Back from the Media Reform Conference

| the entire program

GUEST: Jennifer Pozner, Executive Director of Women in Media

Over three thousand people attended last weekend’s National Conference for Media Reform in Memphis, Tennessee. Among the activists, experts and concerned citizens who gathered were Bill Moyers, Helen Thomas, Jesse Jackson, Jane Fonda, Danny Glover, Geena Davis and Amy Goodman. The conference, organized by Free Press, opened with a stirring address given by veteran journalist Bill Moyers. Jesse Jackson invoked the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. over the holiday weekend as he called for greater media access and spoke out against the undemocratic nature of concentration in media. Over the course of the three day conference participants engaged various topics including net neutrality, media consolidation, community media, and racial and gender inequalities. Panel sessions, workshops and plenary discussions

    Aw, this was an extremely good post. Finding the time and actual effort to make a really good article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.
