Help us Fix Media Now!
Media and Democracy Project is elated that Ruth Ben-Ghiat, historian, political commentator, and author of Strongmen: Mussolini to the Present, will be joining us on October 4 at 7 pm ET. Currently, she is professor of History and Italian Studies at New York University, writes the Lucid Substack, and holds weekly Q&A meetings for Lucid. She is an expert in authoritarianism, fascism, propaganda, and democracy protection. Her perfect pitch voice brings clarity, in opposition, to the cacophony of fascism we are currently experiencing.
Brighter journalists are working diligently to develop ideas to make our news more accurate and call out those who want to use the media to advance their hateful agendas. Look no further than Margaret Sullivan and Dan Froomkin.
Great News! The FCC is now fully staffed. With the confirmation of Anna Gomez, and the confirmed reappointments of Brendan Carr and Jeffrey Starks the FCC is open for business and informed discussions/decisions. One of the current topics of discussion is reinstating Net Neutrality rules, and working on behalf of Americans across the country.
While Rupert Murdoch has stepped down as chairman of Fox Corporation and Fox News Corporation, we cannot let our guard down with his replacement, Lachlan Murdoch.
This transition in leadership does not alleviate any responsibilities of Fox Corp in knowingly and maliciously spreading their lies about the 2020 Presidential Election, and other topics they present.
Help us fight for a more pro-democracy media and a better-informed America.
