Tell Somebody

Jan 10, 2012

On November 27, 2011, I gave a talk on independent media and the journalism crisis at the All Souls Sunday Forum at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church in Kansas City, Missouri. 

"The UU Forum, Kansas City’s longest ongoing conversation, has offered a platform for the discussion of significant issues since 1943. Guest speakers typically focus on issues of political, social justice, moral, educational and artistic significance..."

This talk borrowed heavily from The Death and Life of American Journalism by Robert McChesney and John Nichols, but also includes a lot of my own observations after six years of producing and hosting Tell Somebody on 90.1 FM KKFI Community radio in Kansas City.

Where does the internet fit in as cause or solution of the journalism crisis?  How do the "Occupy" phenomenon and the Move to Amend the Constitution to overturn Citizens United v FEC relate to the journalism crisis? What should the future role of community radio be?
