Ms. Goodman addressed a packed house at Star Hall (who says Moabylonians are ambivalent?) and provided a passionate primer on free speech and the vitally important role that a truly independent media plays in a free society. Her compelling talk gave us all a stark reminder of everything that is wrong with this nation’s corporate dominated media and the post-Citizens United world, where our political and civic discourse is dictated by the highest bidder.
It’s unfortunate if you missed Amy Goodman in person, but don’t despair. KZMU will have high-quality audio recordings of the event available throughout the current fall radiothon.
