Converging for Media Reform

As many of you reading this blog know, the cause of media reform is close to my heart. I believe it's as important to be critical consumers of the food we eat as it is to be critical consumers of the media we consume. And the trends in the food industry -- the concentration of power in fewer in fewer hands -- is mirrored in the trends of a media industry in which just six corporations control most of what we see, hear, and read. Want to learn more about what people around the world are doing to infuse democracy back into the media? Head to Bryant's hometown of Memphis this January to attend the National Conference for Media Reform. (This week, get a special $75 rate for the conference if you're a MoveOn member). Wish I could be there myself... --Anna
