The information and representations we see and hear in the media (and those we don�t see and hear) have enormous impacts on our democracy and culture. Yet media corporations often prioritize profit over fairness, accuracy and diversity. How do we hold media outlets accountable for the content they present, given their claim that free speech rights allow them to express whatever they want? How do we ensure that media companies, using public airwaves to broadcast, are accountable to the communities they serve? This session will examine policy provisions that can require media outlets to serve the public interest and will also discuss activist tactics for directly addressing bias or misinformation directly.
