Freedom Bites

For those of you who feel that Big Media is, well, too big and fancy a trip to the Twin Cities, this year's National Conference for Media Reform is taking place in Minneapolis from June 6 -8.

The democratisation of the media that internet TV promised to deliver has been slow to materialise and this is one of the few serious forums to address this with everyone from FCC commissioners to Dan Rather promising to turn up.

Call me cynical, but until a guy in his dorm with a handicam is in a position to make serious political donations, I suspect little will change the current world order of media in the US.
