Why We Need Alt/Indy Media

  • Why We Need Alt/Indy Media
    Guerrilla News has an interview with one of the best muckraking journalists working today, Greg Palast, a Canadian ex-pat living in Britain and working for the Guardian. In this interview Palast explains how North American media won’t touch truly controversial investigative reporting when it gets too close to corporate and political power, which is why he has to be in the UK to do that kind of work–even though there journalists don’t enjoy the same constitutional 1st Amendment rights that are supposed to guarantee journalistic freedom in the US. For Palst it’s not a matter of observation or conjecture–he’s experienced having stories killed from the very top of media companies. (via the News Dissector Weblog)
