For immediate release:

March 9  ROTTEN REPORTAGE:  Do We Have the Media We Deserve?

The bulk of mainstream media in the U.S. is now owned by six  
corporations that continue to gobble up smaller outlets and  
independent presses. Some say that we have created a perfect echo  
chamber, that the plurality of a free press is just a sad joke.  
Turning on the TV or scrolling through the headlines offers only the  
illusion of choice.

So is the media monopoly that we all feared, almost complete?
Is there any cause for optimism in the new journalistic market place  
and in its pre-election coverage, is the national press corps  
revealing its true colors?

Cambridge Forum has invited a panel of journalists and experts drawn  
from the Internet, academia, and NPR to discuss the state of  
journalism in America today.

Come join the discussion on March 9 at 7:00pm, 3 Church Street in Cambridge.
The event is free and all are welcome!
