NAMAC: Media Justice and Media Reform

There's an excellent piece here by Jon Stout of Free Speech TV at the NAMAC site that breaks down the different approaches of the Media Reform and Media Justice movements.

He quotes from Malkia Cyril (Youth Media Council):

"The logic of the media reform movement mirrors the logic of corporate media, [which] mirrors the logic of America, … and we need to change that."

He goes on to write:

"To build our movement, they contend, we need to connect media struggles with the daily fight for economic, environmental, gender, and racial justice. Only by building such a broad, unified, and politically and economically powerful base can we effect the systemic changes truly needed."

A must read.
