Win a Trip! Vote in the "Big Media Hall of Shame" poll!

Reported by Marie Therese - April 7, 2005

Who's your least favorite person in media today? FOX's Rupert Murdoch? The FCC's Michael Powell? Clear Channel's Lowry Mays? Sinclair's David Smith? Or someone else? Now is your chance to cast your vote - and maybe win a trip to the National Conference for Media Reform to be held May 13-15 in St. Louis. The Conference is the brainchild of Free Press, a nonpartisan organization working to involve the public in media policymaking and to craft policies for a more democratic media system.

Here's a partial list of some of our favorite people, scheduled to attend the Conference: Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein (Federal Communications Commission), Medea Benjamin (Global Exchange, Code Pink), David Brock (Media Matters for America), Rev. Robert Chase (United Church of Christ), Commissioner Michael Copps (Federal Communications Commission), Laura Flanders (Author, radio host), Bill Fletcher (TransAfrica Forum), Al Franken (Air America Radio), Amy Goodman (Democracy Now!), Juan Gonzalez (NY Daily News), Robert Greenwald (Director, OUTFOXED), Jim Hightower (Author & Commentator), Janine Jackson (FAIR), Naomi Klein (Author, Columnist), George Lakoff (Author, Professor), Robert McChesney (Founder, Free Press), John Nichols (The Nation), Chellie Pingree (Common Cause) and Congresswoman Diane Watson, U.S. House of Representatives.

So, here's your chance to express your dissatisfaction with the state of media today. Click here to vote!
