Our guests this week are Diane Farsetta and Judith Siers-Poisson of the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD).
The Center for Media and Democracy investigates and exposes public relations spin and propaganda, and promotes media literacy and citizen journalism, media "of, by and for the people." The CMD's programs include PR Watch, a quarterly investigative journal; six books by CMD staff; Spin of the Day; the Weekly Spin listserv; and, Congresspedia andSourceWatch, part of their wiki-based investigative journalism collaborative to which anyone can contribute.
