Our media…and theirs
By Kristian Knutsen
This Friday, Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! is speaking at the Barrymore Theater in Madison on behalf of a campaign to broaden the cable news offerings in that city. According to the press release announcing the event, "Madison residents are organizing to add Free Speech TV to local cable's offerings through Charter Communications. This is an unprecedented campaign working to make Free Speech TV available as a full-time channel on the local cable system."
More information about the campaign is available here.
Meanwhile, it looks like the Chicago Tribune, which I criticized several weeks ago over its coverage of the Mendota Beacon, realized its error. In a correction on February 26, the Trib noted, "An article Feb. 7 in the main news section incorrectly stated that a new publication, The Mendota Beacon, would be the third independent student newspaper competing on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In fact, The Mendota Beacon is the fourth, joining The Daily Cardinal, The Badger Herald and The Madison Observer.
"The Tribune regrets the errors."
