School, is this film’s writer, co-producer

She will attend both of its showings and will talk about the film, the issue it addresses (the increasing lack of local, diverse radio in America due to media consolidation and its impact on democracy), and her career in news and media production. In the “KLSD” footage are Phil Donahue, Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz and Bill Moyers. Sponsored by Joseph and Kristan Madison.

Why should we care that the mass media has been deregulated and is owned overwhelmingly by a handful of large corporations? Because concentration of ownership in a few hands threatens competition and the diversity and localism of content. Find out more watch the preview of Save KLSD, a documentary film about the grassroots activism to save San Diego's progressive talk radio KLSD/AM1360, the lack of local, diverse content on our airwaves across America and the efforts to ensure broadcasters meet their public interest responsibilities.
