Bill Moyers at the National Conference for Media Reform, June 7, 2008

From Raw News:

Bill Moyers spoke to a crowd of 3,500 in Minneapolis Saturday and in typical Moyers fashion he tears apart the corporate media conglomerates for destroying journalism and implanting propaganda over the truth.

"You couldn't find a more revealing measure of the state of the dominant media today than the continuing ubiquitous presence -- on the air and in print -- of the very pundits and experts, self-selected 'message multipliers' of a disastrous foreign policy, who got it all wrong in the first place," he said.  Full video below:

Like the US, Canada's media has "fallen prey to merger after merger, acquisition after acquisition... to the point where they are, now, tiny parts of immeasurably larger corporate entities — entities whose primary business often has nothing to do with news," to use a quote from Dan Rather, who also spoke.
