On Friday’s Radioshow: Anti-Sinclair Protest, Media Reform News on the Radio

About 70 – 100 people attended a protest against Champaign, IL Sinclair station WICD on Saturday, Oct. 23. Amongst the protestors’ complaints were Sinclair’s threat of running a one-sided anti-Kerry documentary in prime time and the company’s “The Point” right-wing commentary that is appended to the local news without an opportunity for an opposing viewpoint. Drew and I were there with minidisc recorder and microphone so we can bring you a report on the radioshow this Friday.

We’ll also talk to my pal John Anderson about his new project, Media Minutes, a 5-minute weekly audio newscast about media reform and policy issues.

Listen live Friday at 5:30 PM on community radio WEFT 90.1 in Champaign, IL, tape-delayed on Radio Free Moscow, ID, KRFP 92.5 FM on Tuesday at 11 AM.

If you’re not near one of these fine stations, listen on-line here — the show is posted by 5 PM CST on Mondays.
