• Is it still possible to believe in a press that lives up to the lofty ideals of our founding fathers?
The founders believed that a free press would serve democracy by promoting unfettered political debate and expose the actions of the government to the harsh scrutiny of an informed and engaged populace. Today, however, large media conglomerates have become part of the entrenched power structure and are driven as much by profit as by a sense of public mission. John and Ken are joined by former TV news anchor and investigative journalist Leslie Griffith for a program recorded in front of a live audience at the Marsh theatre in Berkeley, California.
