Review for Free Press, Florence, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I depend on Free Press to keep me abreast of the Congressional idiots marching to the tunes of their corporate masters. Free Press is my only real source of media truth. I particularly appreciate Free Press for letting me know which Obama- appointed idiots are gaming the system nationally and when the public needs to fight back. Media matters seem to get little attention from the corrupted, consolidated press corps except for Free Press. So I'm grateful for their vigilance.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I'm curious why Free Press and Media Matters don't combine forces for more public clout. Seems to me their focus is similar and would benefit the computing public. FP has alerted me to the dearth of real local news regionally, esp. when Wisconsin erupted and continues its fight against the fascist Walker regime.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Link Free Press and Media Matters--I'm not rich enough to support all the email begging messages I get. All these freedom-groups should put their heads together literally for broader impact on Congress and the public.

Role:  Volunteer & I help flood Congress by broadcasting Free Press notices on FB and Twitter, as well as on my personal email lists.

Dear Wimhoa! Thank you for the great review--Free Press activists are among the most passionate, informed, and dedicated e-activists out there and you are obviously no exception! I think your comment about Media Matters is an interesting one. We do work closely with them on certain issues--their primary focus is to uncover and correct misinformation in the media, which they do exceedingly well! Free Press is the only organization working to strengthen both media content AND infrastructure (on all communications platforms). That means that in addition to monitoring and exposing government and corporate wrongdoing, we want to build up a media system that is more inclusive, diverse, and accessible. So we will promote investigative journalism, Net Neutrality protections, diverse media ownership etc. AND increased broadband deployment, a more robust public media system, etc. We will continue to collaborate with Media Matters when it makes sense--with more plans in the works--and join with other allies on other issues. In the meantime, thanks for joining us! Together, stronger! ~Sara Longsmith, FP staff
