Project Censored Guide to Independent Media and Activism (Seven Stories' Open Media)by Peter Phillips
Synopses & Reviews
The independent media are arguably more important than ever today, as corporate medias line reads increasingly like a government press release rather than a free societys analysis of the days important events. But theres a lot to sort through: Independent newsmagazines and newspapers, local cable-TV access, and independent and microtransmitted radio are everywhere, offering a vast array of news, opinions, and information. New Indymedia activists alone now have direct links to more than sixty-five grassroots news sites around the world. The challenge we are faced with is two-fold: We must make these news sources widely accessible, but we must also find ways to compile, sort, and collectively release this real news to millions of people—a project that this invaluable guide for diversifying your access to information can make much more achievable.
Outlines alternative media resources, aside from the conventional newspapers and television programs, listing everything from independent to activist sources and providing descriptions, web sites, and subscription information.
A guide to alternative sources for news by the authors of the acclaimed Censored series, this book lists hundreds of independent, progressive, and activist media outlets, complete with subscription information, website addresses, noted contributors, and brief descriptions of each.
