December 17, 2012 (San Diego)--As we celebrate the holidays and ring out 2012, it’s also time to pay attention what is happening right now with ownership of the mass media. Sad to say, the mood is more Scrooge-like than reflecting the spirit of Santa or Jesus. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is about to deregulate the media--and San Diego’s very own media mogul, U-T owner/developer Doug Manchester, may buy-up even more media outlets.

April 21, 2012 (San Diego) – How does media consolidation impact American democracy?   The producers of the new documentary film Save KLSD: Media Consolidation and Local Radio present a case study suggesting that politics, not ratings, forced the San Diego region’s only progressive talk radio station off the air.

Two screenings of the film will be followed by question and answer sessions with producers John Monday and Jennifer C. Douglas, as well as radio host/narrator Jon Elliott and Shaun Spaulding of New Media Rights.
