Some upcoming presentations of possible interest

Posted by Mitchell - October 17, 2006 (entry 485)

ITEM: Robert Jensen, professor of journalism at the University of Texas, and who has been part of a CMA public education forum in the past, will be in the Chicago area this week for a presentation and a workshop on writing op-eds, and hopefully additional outreach efforts. Read more here.

ITEM: CAN TV is slated to air a presentation on October 22 about the efforts by telecom companies to ram through their equivalent of cable and gut public access television in the process. Efforts to try and do this at the federal level have so far been stymied, but they are now moving their efforts to state legislatures, and Illinois is the next front, with the Illinois Telecommunications Act slated for a rewrite in the forthcoming 2007 general assembly. If you're in Chicago and have cable, I encourage you to watch. Forewarned is forearmed.

Also, the photos of the September 20 presentation with David and Amy Goodman, and featuring both CMA and the North Shore Coalition of Peace and Justice have been uploaded. In the meantime, please enjoy these (somewhat echo-ey) MP3 files of David's speech and Amy's speech.
