Watch: Robert McChesney and John Nichols debate 'Who will win the digital revolution?'

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 is proud to be a media sponsor. 

Tune in live at 7PM local time.
