This production provides a brief history of US foreign policy and military involvement abroad, looks at the corporate media's inadequate coverage of the peace movement and resistance to the war, deconstructs flashy techniques used to illustrate military intervention on the major networks and gives some information on how to get involved in activism for peace in your own community.

ACM National Conference Keynote 2016 - John Nichols 08/18/2016

Keynote Address at the 2016 ACM National Conference in Boston.

John Nichols argues that America is in a democratic crisis in no small part because of the death of journalism in towns and communities throughout the United States. The answer is a media devoted to the needs of people and a reinvigoration of journalism in our town. He calls on us to respond to that crisis.

Nichols is the National Affairs Correspondent with The Nation magazine and associate editor of The Capitol Times in Madison, Wisconsin. He writes regularly on politics and media for In These Times and The Progressive, and appears regularly as a commentator on MSNBC.  

With Robert McChesney, Nichols co-founded Free Press, the national media reform advocacy group which has championed media diversity, net neutrality and online privacy in the past decade. The author of many books, his most recent work with McChesney is People Get Ready: The Fight Against a Jobless Economy and a Citizenless Democracy
