Journalist Bill Moyers recently gave the keynote address before 2,000 people at the first ever National Conference on Media Reform. He warned, “What we’re talking about is nothing less than rescuing a democracy that is so polarized it is in danger of being paralyzed and pulverized. Alarming words, I know. But the realities we face should trigger alarms. Free and responsible government by popular consent just can’t exist without an informed public.”

  • Bill Moyers, host of the weekly PBS news program “Now with Bill Moyers”, speaking at the National Confernence on Media Reform in Madison, Wisc.
