Message from your host, Linda H.: WAR ON WHISTLEBLOWERS: FREE PRESS AND THE NATIONAL SECURITY STATE - MoveOn, the Urban and Environmental Policy Institute, and CA Common Cause are hosting the Los Angeles theatrical release of a new film by Robert Greenwald and Brave New Foundation. We urge you to join with us in watching this important film, which will be the final event of the Media Reform Summit [1-5pm followed by reception]. This movie tells the chilling stories of four respected professionals turned whistleblowersone in the military, one with NSA, another with the Department of Justice, and the fourth with Lockheed.
What these men endure as they feel compelled to reveal grave acts of government illegality and violations of the U.S. Constitution absolutely qualifies them as heroes. And as we watch their stories unfold, we see there is another group of heroes as well: The journalists and publishers who publicize their stories.
As serious concerns are raised that our own Los Angeles Times might be sold to the Koch Brothers or News Corp, the essential role that serious investigative journalism plays in the effective functioning of our society and the importance of REAL NEWS, not propagandais brought to our very doorstep.
