Media Consolidation Conference archives complete 

Last week this campus was the site of a conference entitled "Can Freedom of the Press Survive Media Consolidation?" sponsored by the Illinois Initiative for Media Policy Research, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Quite a line-up: Seymour Hersh, Amy Goodman, Naomi Klein, Orville Schell, Phil Donahue, Dennis Swanson, and many more great speakers. We decided to capture everything on video, and provide streaming video archives for general edification.
