Moyers on the Media

Gwen Fortune sent along this link to a good Bill Moyers post on media and democracy, which is prefaced with the following:

The American media landscape grows more corporate and consolidated by the day, and with the airwaves saturated with commercials and spin, the truth is often hard to find. As our press becomes less free and news morphs into “infotainment,” the very fabric of American democracy may be at stake. How can citizens make critical decisions without honest information from our news sources? How can we take the media back, reinstating it as society’s vigilant watchdog?

How indeed.
