Democracy Now! | Broadcast Legend Bill Moyers on Media Reform: “Democracy Only Works When Ordinary People Claim It as Their Own”

More than 3,500 people gathered in Minneapolis this weekend for the fourth annual National Conference for Media Reform, organized by the group Free Press. The thousands of participants took part in panel discussions and strategized on efforts to fight media consolidation and democratize the airwaves. We play the electrifying keynote address by legendary journalist Bill Moyers.

Bill Moyers’ speech at the National Conference for Media Reform left me in tears by the end of it. It was so uplifting and inspiring! It really gives hope to those who are pushing for media reform and for easy access to good, quality information. We must stay active and vigilant in this cause. We cannot have a thriving democracy if we cannot have access to the facts. We must take back our media and our democracy one keystroke, one phone call, one letter, one discussion at a time. We can do it, we can once again have a democracy for the people, by the people! Peace 🙂
