Resnick & McChesney on Digital Disconnect
Bill Resnick talks with Robert McChesney about his recent book Digital Disconnect: How Capitalism Is Turning the Internet Against Democracy and the issues it addresses. They discuss how media that began with great possibilities for democratization have been taken over by large corporations, and the ways that unregulated monopoly leads to worsening infrastructure. They consider the importance of net neutrality, the crisis in journalism, and the need for journalism to be treated as a public good. McChesney points to FreePress as one organization working on these issues.
