We need a media, when we cover war, that’s not brought to us by the weapons manufacturers; when we cover climate change, not brought to us by the oil, the gas, the coal companies, the nuclear companies; when we cover healthcare, not brought to us by the insurance industry, by the drug companies. We need a media that is truly independent. That, I believe is what will save us.
