Amy Goodman: Corporate media is ‘an extreme media beating the drums for war’
“it’s not about being for or against it it is about showing the images of war,” Amy Goodman.
Journalist Amy Goodman made the case for independent media at the National Conference for Media Reform in Denver on Saturday, saying the pro-war views of the corporate media networks were firmly entrenched.
“This is no longer a mainstream media, it’s an extreme media beating the drums for war,” she said after citing statistics about the mainstream media’s bias in favor of the Iraq war. “I really do think that those who are concerned about war, that those who are deeply concerned about the growing inequality in this country, those who are concerned about climate change, about the fate of the planet, are not a fringe minority — not even a silent majority, but a silenced majority, silenced by the corporate media, which is why we have to take it back.”
