WEDNESDAY, May 28 - 11AM: MEDIA REFORM A WEEK AWAY:
A Preview of June 5, 6, 7, 8
The Reformers are coming! They are many and hungry to redress the steep
slide of mostly mainstream media into an abyss of cultural waste
infotainment, shallow journalism, ignorance of real issues, celebrity
worship and lockstep support for government folly war, corporate power,
enriching the rich, and consolidating their own power! This has made
mincemeat of the medias responsibility to be Americas watchdog, not
Americas lapdog. First Amendment protections have been combined with untold
wealth and control over the flow of useful and important information
citizens need to govern ourselves.
Hundreds of trench workers in alternative and grassroots media will come
together with powerhouses in the field Bill Moyers, Amy Goodman, Arianna
Huffington, Phil Donohue, Robert McChesney, Juan Gonzalez, Laura Flanders,
Tim Wu, Rosa Clemente, and FCC Commissioners Michael Copps and Jonathan
Adelstein. We will be talking with all of them and more when TTT goes LIVE
from the Minneapolis Convention Center Friday, June 6th, and on tape the 7th
and 8th...PLUS...DEMOCRACY DAY - Thursday, June 5th - the day before will
look at electoral reform and similar issues.
But, media reform begins at home and continues long after the conferences.
This weeks preview will talk about what steps local grassroots media types
plan to take to make our local media relevant to the Twin Cities and its
real people. CALL US: 612-341-0980
TTTs Andy Driscoll and Lynnell Mickelsen will talk with planners and
reformers here and nationally to talk about the Media Reform and Democracy
Day events coming up and the work we expect to do when everyone else
