Conscience and Dissent: Values in Media

Independent journalism has been the site to locate incisive analysis and perspectives typically passed over by the hegemony established by mainstream, corporate media. Speaking truth to power is a phrase often spoken, and arguably, a central tenet to independent journalism, and community produced media. A network of community media outlets gathered to assess and collaborate for The Media Consortium conference that took place in Washington DC to discuss the role independent media plays in today’s contentious media landscape.

Special thanks to the panelists, The Media Consortium, Jo Ellen Kaiser, Manolia Charlotin, Paul Stewart.
