Michael Calvan on Corporations

 


Democracy requires media independent of corporate power

Today's mainstream media has lost its credibility. The corporate media in this country can no longer trusted to disseminate the truth to the people. With this in mind, I openly call upon the National Union of Journalism to fight against the corporate powers running the media and to allow the truth to be disseminated. Likewise, I am calling upon the community to both support and to become involved with the independent media.

A truly independent media is the very cornerstone of a Jeffersonian Democracy. If the people are not informed of all issues by the media, then we as a society will make disastrous choices for ourselves and for the world we live in. It is time for the noble profession of journalism to regain its integrity.
