Watch Bill Moyers Speech from Minneapolis


2008 Nat'l Conference for Media Reform
 
Legendary journalist Bill Moyers electrified an audience of more than 3,500 in Minneapolis this morning calling the media reform movement "the most significant citizens' movement to emerge in this new century."
Watch Moyers' speech now:
Moyers said that the work of activists like you has "challenged the stranglehold of mega-media corporations over our press" and fostered "alternative and independent sources of news and information that people can trust."
"You're not alone, and you know what we need to know," he told the audience. "So it's up to you to tell the truth about this country we love. ... It's up to you to remind us that democracy only works when ordinary people claim it as their own."
Moyers was speaking during the second day of the National Conference for Media Reform, an event that has gathered thousands of people dedicated to making our media system more democratic, diverse and accountable.
