We play a speech by Newspaper Guild President Linda Foley speaking at the National Conference on Media Reform in Madison Wisconsin last weekend.

The National Conference on Media Reform was held in Madison, Wisconsin last weekend. Organizers expected about 200 people at the event — over 2,000 showed up. The crowd was so large, many could not fit in the Wisconsin Memorial Union’s Great Hall for the opening session of the conference.

Newspaper Guild President Linda Foley was one of the many speakers at the conference. Addressing a packed crowd, Foley addressed the issue of media consolidation and pointed out how media bias comes from institutions more than from reporters.
