Must see: Bill Moyers keynote address

by Larry Geller

Videos of Bill Moyers' keynote address at the fourth annual National Conference for Media Reform are currently very hot on the web. You can catch his brilliant address on Youtube, at the Conference website, or on Democracy Now.

As conglomerates swallow up newspapers, magazines, publishing houses and broadcast outlets, news organizations are folded into entertainment divisions. The “news hole” in the print media shrinks to make room for ads, celebrities, nonsense and propaganda, and the news we need to know slips from sight.

On Oahu you can catch it tonight (Monday) at 10 p.m. on channel 56, or anytime on the Democracy Now! website.

One neat thing that Democracy Now does: they broadcast closed captions, which gives them the ability to also produce a quick transcript of the program. If you prefer to read text, go to their website and there is the quick transcript of Bill Moyers' address.

Requiring those Captcha codes at least temporarily, in the hopes that it quells the flood of comment spam I've been receiving.
