Laura Flanders Speaks to Truthout’s Jason Leopold About Media Reform

Truthout Deputy Managing Editor and investigative reporter Jason Leopold spoke with Free Speech TV's Laura Flanders last week during the annual Netroots Nation conference. Flanders and Leopold discussed the state of the media, building off of a recent report issued by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which highlighted the need for more local news coverage and underscored the importance of non profit media organizations. Flanders and Leopold also talked about the media reform project Truthout has been involved in for the past several months, supported by The Media Consortium, a collective of progressive news organizations, that aims to raise awareness about media reform policies, such as net neutrality and the proposed merger of AT&T and T-Mobile and the ongoing debate about net neutrality.
