NATIONAL PRESS CLUB

Michael Copps, Kevin McKinney, Jill McKeever NPCThe 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.  You may hear the entire program here: http://npcboc.org/audiofiles/2013-03-11_next_round_of_fcc_consolidation_rules_newsmaker.mp3
