Regarding Yesterday's Forum on Iran

Posted by Mitchell - July 14, 2005 (entry 330)

Our thanks to everyone who attend yesterday's CMA Public Education Forum. Thanks to Cliff Kelley, who graciously hosted for us again. Thanks also to Stephen Kinzer, Hamid Akbari, Danny Postel, and Saman Sepheri for serving on the event's panel.

Thanks also to the Chicago Reader; radio stations WHPK, WZRD, WLUW, WNUR, WBEZ and WVON; the websites Gapers Block, Chicago Indymedia, and the New World Resource Center; and CAN TV for promotional assistance.

A separate webpage is forthcoming about the event, including photos and the complete audio of the forum for download and rebroadcast. Plus, CAN TV attended to record the proceedings for later cablecast. When we hear details regarding future broadcast times and channels, we'll be sure to pass along word.

Oh, and you know that FCC media ownership rule change that we all thought was going to come down today. Well, guess what? It's not happening.

Update: A placeholder webpage of the forum is now posted. More text and photos are forthcoming. And the complete audio of the forum is online.
