Sue Wilson tells important stories which move politicians to act. The Emmy winning director of the media reform documentary "Broadcast Blues" and editor of, Sue recently founded the Media Action Center. Wilson was 1987's California State University Long Beach "Outstanding Graduate" in Radio/TV/Film. In the early '90's, she won Emmys for specials she produced for Jim Lampley, Bree Walker, Sylvia Lopez and others at KCBS-TV in Los Angeles, and then turned the spotlight on wasteful government spending for Sacramento Fox TV station KTXL, where her Emmy winning stories changed national, state, and local spending policies. In 1998 , Wilson broke national TV news of pharmaceuticals appearing in drinking water, which forced the US EPA to begin testing. Her AP, RTNDA, and PRNDI award winning radio show "Healing Healthcare" at Sacramento NPR station KXJZ in the early 2000's helped put more nurses on the job in California. "Broadcast Blues" shows how poor U.S. media policy is destroying discourse in this country. It reminds us that We the People own the public airwaves, and we can and must Take the Media Back! See her website to obtain DVDs and for updated information on our broken system of broadcasting. And join the actions at to hold broadcasters - and the Federal Communications Commission - accountable to the public interest!

Supreme Court: Say No to the FCC and #SaveLocalNews! The Supreme Court will hear a case January 19 which, if decided in favor of the FCC, will accelerate this country's mis- and disinformation crisis. In FCC v Prometheus, the FCC, under direction of Trump Chair Ajit Pai, is trying to change rules so one company could own the local newspaper, all or most of the TV stations and most of the radio stations - in the same town. One voice, one community, no opportunity for dissent.

Why Does the FCC Allow Sinclair Broadcasting to Violate Station Ownership Rules in Baltimore? Sinclair Broadcasting, known for forcing its news anchors to read Right Wing propaganda on the air pretending to be real "news" is playing an elaborate shell game to hide how many TV stations across the country it REALLY owns. In a recent legal Petition to Deny Sinclair's licenses in Baltimore, Republican attorney Art Belendiuk reveals the lies - & Sinclair could/ should lose ALL it broadcast licenses nationwide because of it.

Book Review: REALITY (TM) 2048 by Derek Cressman This book is in the same genre as 1984, only is far more prescient. REALITY â„¢ 2048 offers an entirely realistic dystopian future that projects just past modern-day headlines to a society brainwashed by corporate/government propaganda that has traded security for freedom.

Chris Matthew is No Kingmaker - nor Queenmaker Either Why is MSNBC's Chris Matthews, and apparently the entire corporate media apparatus, colluding to coronate Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee on June 7th, even though there is no way for her to win the necessary 2383 pledged delegates for victory?

Brainwashing Trumps Reason If it seems the country's political system has gone mad, it's because too many of us have been brainwashed by purposeful misinformation from the far-right media. Jen Senko's brilliant new film "The Brainwashing of My Dad" highlights what's gone wrong and why, and this piece gets into some of the factors behind right-wing brain control.

Trump and Cruz: Will Somebody Sue, Already? Everybody hates political ads that lie to us over our own public airwaves, but only the candidates themselves can do anything about it. Trump and Cruz are making threats to each other and to the TV stations, so sue, baby, sue! Do it for We the People who can't do it for ourselves!

Rush Limbaugh Stepped Into It This Time The Federal Communications Commission, which oversees the public interest in broadcasting, has consistently stood by Limbaugh's First Amendment right to say whatever he wants, no matter how many people he harms or offends. Until, perhaps, now.

Scott Walker and the GOP Turning First Amendment Rights Upside Down Does simply investigating whether a political crime occurred violate the suspect's First Amendment rights? Presidential hopeful Scott Walker's allies say yes. What will the court decide?

Talk Radio: Puppeteers of Prevarication Throughout his entire career, Paul Ryan's prevarications have been propped up by Wisconsin talk radio. Only when he reached the national stage did the press reveal his growing Pinochio nose. It's time to stop Right Wing puppeteers from pulling the strings on our publicly owned airwaves.

Did Our Public Airwaves "Win" it for Walker? As owners of the air -- our public airwaves, to be precise -- there is plenty we can do to combat the corrosive effect of big money on our elections, by holding our partners in broadcasting, local TV and radio stations, accountable.
