Democracy v.
The Propaganda State:

Why We Must Support Independent Media and Build a Real Alternative to Corporate Power

Respected independent journalist John Nichols, The Nation magazine Washington correspondent and co-author with Robert McChesney of "The Death and Life of American Journalism: The Media Revolution that will Begin the World Again," spoke at a Between The Lines public forum in New Haven, CT where he argues that journalism should be seen as a public good, much like education and that the federal government should intervene to assist the ailing newspaper industry - plagued by closings and layoffs -- since a free press and an informed electorate are among the most important elements in a well-functioning democracy. Canada and European democracies spend exponentially more per capita ($70 to $150) on public media subsidies than the U.S., which only spends about $1.52.

We continue to believe that as corporate news organizations marginalize or censor the views of progressive activists, grassroots media projects like Between The Lines -- which feature dissenting points of view that challenge the status quo -- become an increasingly important element for the restoration of our democracy and the struggle for peace and social justice. Your active support of Between The Lines allows us to reach more listeners who are hungry for in-depth, timely progressive analysis.

Thank you very much!
