Announcement: Media
Look back at Media Reform Conference in Madison WI and a look ahead with conference organizer Robert McChesney
Media Reform on the Heartland Labor Forum this Thursday at 6pm on KKFI 90.1 FM

This Thursday the Heartland Labor Forum will present a show on Media Reform,
looking back at the National Conference on Media Reform in Madison WI last
November and looking ahead to the continuing struggle. Audio from the
conference and a new exclusive interview with conference organizer Professor
Robert McChesney. This Thursday, February 5th at 6pm on 90.1 KKFI
********************************************************************************
“Information is oxygen to the mind and we are choking, asphyxiating from lack
of good information. Too few people control too much media. It undercuts
the very assumptions of an open free, fair democratic order…is dangerous and
threatening. Why were there bigger demonstrations in Europe against the war?
Because they had better information about the war.”
Jesse Jackson speaking at the National Conference on Media Reform in Madison
Wisconsin

“It is absolutely critical to have independent media to dissect those lies
because lies take lives.”
Amy Goodman speaking at the National Conference on Media Reform in Madison
Wisconsin

“Democracy cannot exist without an informed public and these mega-media
companies are not informing us………if they can, they will become the
gatekeepers of the internet and then this nascent movement, which depends on
the that great public park of the internet, will itself be brought to an end.”
Bill Moyers speaking at the National Conference on Media Reform in Madison
Wisconsin

“The lack of information, and the ranting and raving and lies on Fox TV is a
deadly menace to the entire world.”
Naomi Klein speaking at the National Conference on Media Reform in Madison
Wisconsin

“Thank you Bob McChesney, thank you John Nichols, thank you for convening
what I think is the most important gathering, the most important meeting
taking place in the United States of America today.”
FCC Commissioner Michael Copps speaking at the National Conference on Media
Reform in Madison Wisconsin

“Radio has been gutted from its historical role as an engine of democracy and
diversity and that has to change.”
US Senator Russ Feingold (WI) speaking at the National Conference on Media
Reform in Madison Wisconsin

“…so I would suggest to all of you…stand up together, by the hundreds of
thousands, by the millions, and just say “no, hell no!”
AFL-CIO President John Sweeney speaking at the National Conference on Media
Reform in Madison Wisconsin
