Media Justice: Access and Accountability

Listen:


Racial bias, under-representation, lack of access… these are just a few concerns of media justice activists. Confronted with the ever increasing concentration of media, and the tossing away of FCC regulations ensuring diversity on the airwaves, under-resourced communities are getting organized. On this edition, we’ll take a look at Media Justice, and the grassroots efforts to make media more accountable.
