Press Needs To Be 4th Estate Instead of 4 The State – Amy Goodman

This speech at NCMR is the first of many I will be showing on WAMMToday. Tomorrow I will publish a report on the National Conference for Media Reform on WAMMToday, which I attended. With much more to come from this incredible conference that gathered 2500 media mavens, organizers, professors, students and teachers in Boston April 9-11 2011 to talk about and share information about media advocacy, media justice, mediia technology, media criticism and media reform. –The Editor

Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman recounts her arrest at the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul Minnesota and talks about how the press has sunk to a new low by agreeing to be embedded with police to cover political conventions. She is speaking at the 2011 National Conference For Media Reform in Boston.
