NCMR 2008: Part Conference, Part Rally

Peter Fleck has a good first blush on the National Conference of Media Reform, so I’m not gonna reinvent that wheel.

Free Press site has links to all the major keynotes and plenary sessions from the National Conference for Media Reform and I think they are uploading video of all the sessions this week (and beyond—there were so many excellent sessions and it’s probably going to take some time). Here’s the video archive. Local folks will want to listen to Keith Ellison’s impassioned plea around reform and Janice Lane Ewart’s [sic] (KFAI Radio) opening address. Bill Moyers’ and Dan Rather’s vids are up too. Watch for Naomi Klein, Amy Goodman, Shá Cage, Arianna Huffington, and Van Jones. For a twitterful view of the NCMR check Twemes. [Erica’s note: Or Summize.] The official tag for the conference was NCMR2008.

The Minnesota Independent (formerly Minnesota Monitor/MnMon and henceforth known as MnIndy) has a wrap-up, including audio from sessions MnIndy folks participated in.

The Uptake has spectacular footage. The best of the best is the FOX News ambush of PBS’s Bill Moyers and coverage of the Live From Main Street Town Hall which took place Sunday afternoon after the conference. Find the full program in the on-demand content at their Mogulus channel and clips at their blip.tv channel [1] [2] [3] [4].

I’ve got a rough cut of my notes from the sessions I attended over at my place.

Never did find out what was up with the polar bear.
