Download Hour1 Download Hour2 This week on the program we focus on how the corporate media system is undermining the conditions necessary for democratic governemce, and we'll hear frank talk from two public officials who have joined forces with, scholars, journalists and citizens in the media democracy movement to do something about it.
This week's show starts with a forum on Media Consolidation that took place last week at Ithaca College. Among the participants were dissident FCC commissioner Michael Copps and Ithaca's member of Congress Maurice Hinchey, who has introduced a bill that if passed would take steps to diversify media ownership and reinstitute the fairness doctrine. Then an interview with John Buchanan, author of Fixing America: Breaking the Stranglehold of Corporate Rule, Big Media and the Religious Right.
