Over three thousand people attended last weekendâ€™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
