Amy Goodman: Corporate media needs to be 'fourth estate' not 'for-the-state'

Poster image: White Pine Pictures

On September 10, 2016, Phillip Dwight Morgan sat down with Amy Goodman and Nermeen Shaikh of Democracy Now! (DN!) at White Pine Studio in Toronto to discuss the current media landscape and the state of independent media.

Goodman and Sheikh were in Toronto for the world premier of All Governments Lie, a new documentary highlighting the legacy of renowned journalist I.F. Stone and role of free press in protecting democracy.

 

How did you get involved with this project and why is this an opportune time for people to be reminded of the legacy of I.F. Stone?

Amy Goodman's arrest shows that in many parts of America journalism is still a crime

Last Thursday, an arrest warrant was issued under the header "North Dakota versus Amy Goodman." The charge was for criminal trespass. The actual crime? Journalism. We went to the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation to cover the growing opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline.
