    April 27 in #LosAngeles: “Good Grief – Who’s Going to Cover LA Now?” Media Reform Summit 


    You’re invited to the 6th Annual LA Media Reform Summit at Occidental College

    Good Grief – Who’s Going to Cover LA Now?

    We wanted you to be the first to know about this year’s event. We’re focusing on a local issue: the LA Times. With the paper possibly looking at new ownership as its parent company emerges from bankruptcy, will a rumored buyout by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. or the Koch Brothers improve the paper’s news coverage? Would a different merger, sale, or consolidation better serve the community? If not, how will Angelenos get their local government news coverage – what will be the consequences of that shift?

    This half day summit will study these issues and bring to light new ideas for how to make LA news better. (More …)

    Video via @FMmovie: Bain Capital, Clear Channel & the Downfall of Radio 

    The internet didn’t kill radio, commercial radio is killing itself.  Ever wonder why über-corporations like Clear Channel can take over local radio stations, fire your favorite DJ and ignore the local music movements?  How can they make money when fewer and fewer people listen?  Private Equity firms such as Bain Capital have destroyed radio and made handsome profits along the way.

    UPDATED! Oct. 14: @LA_Indymedia Film Night with “Precious Knowledge” 

    In the spirit of furthering understanding and communication within and between our many communities LA Indymedia brings Film-Night back with the film “Precious Knowledge”.

     Oct 14, 2012 at 7:00pm

    “Precious Knowledge” is an important documentary that exposes the blatant racism that the State Superintendent of Education in Arizona recently displayed in cutting out the successful ethnic-studies program at Tucson High School. The film follows the lives of four students and several teachers as they fight to save their classes and the program that became an educational lifeline for them.
