The century old National Press Club is a couple blocks from the White House. It refers to itself as “The Place Where News Happens”. After a crazy subway ride in rush hour DC, Jill and I emerged in the “Edward R Murrow” room of the epicenter of establishment-journalism. We were in DC to show the film at the DC Independent Film Festival. The press club was asking about possible new rules for yet more consolidation. I had something to say to them.
Hear my speech:
I spoke after Steven Waldman, Senior Advisor to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, and former national editor for US News & World Report and Michael Copps, former FCC commissioner and senior advisor for the Common Cause Media and Democracy Reform Initiative.
