Kimberly Butler on the Corporatization of Media

February 24, 2010

Prolific photographer Kimberly Butler has just launched a vlog series on the corporatization of media, asking a variety of folks-who-would-know – including former WMC president Carol Jenkins: Was Marshall McLuhan right when he declared that a given medium was more important than the message? How did news become big business, and what does it mean for us now? Also weighing in: Amy Goodman, Dan Rather, Rachel Sklar, Bill Pullman and Mary Alice Williams. Check Part One of the vlog post below, and stay tuned for Butler's next entry on "Freeing Up the Press" - launching tomorrow.
