Who Will Win the Digital Revolution? features Robert McChesney and John Nichols, talking about their new book People Get Ready: The Fight Against a Jobless Economy and a Citizenless Democracy. McChesney and Nichols are the co-founders of Free Press, a national media-reform organization, and have written extensively on the impact of corporate ownership on our media system. Their new book is a call to action for Net Neutrality and the fight against a ‘“citizen-less” future for our democracy.
The Internet is a revolutionary tool that will shape the type of society we aspire to, but is the digital revolution headed in the right direction? We need to put the our communications systems back into the centre as a tool that connects people to decision-making, and our special guests have suggestions to accomplish this.
This is a fundaiser for media reform, organized by Media Democracy Days Vancouver and OpenMedia.ca.
rabble.ca is proud to be a media sponsor.

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
