Jim Hightower discusses the need for a powerful and connected independent media, citing three factors that are reason for hope. First, an open class war has been declared by the rich and powerful against the rest of the country, providing fertile ground for organizing. Second, the demand for independent media voices is great. Third, the emergence of Ross Perot and Pat Buchanan indicate interesting times in which progressive and populist voices flourish.
