Event endorsed by Project Censored and Media Freedom Foundation Endorsements of David's work:

"If BE THE MEDIA didn't exist, like Voltaire's God, it would have to be invented. David Mathison has assembled a mind-boggling collection of essays by people on the front lines of producing independent media. Since we are rapidly on our way to a point where that could include just about everyone, this is a book everyone needs to read."
- Robert McChesney: Co-founder, FreePress.net. Professor, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Author or editor of 12 award-winning books, including Telecommunications, Mass Media, and Democracy; Our Media, Not Theirs; Rich Media, Poor Democracy; The Problem of the Media. "In a time of corporate media induced truth emergency, "BE THE MEDIA" is media democracy in action. It is the direction for grass roots bottom-up public truth telling in which we can all participate." - Peter Phillips: Director, Project Censored

David Mathison's BE THE MEDIA offers the preposterous idea that broadcasting and publishing need not be exclusive to industrial titans. You (yes, he means you) can take the "big" out of "media" and return this most important feature of democracy to the people. The practical advice offered in this book are ideas whose time has come ... and none too soon. For those who've come to understand that the "news" and what's hot in popular culture are decisions made by large corporations, this book is must reading. Here is the hand book for those Americans who want to join and help lead the revolution that is urgently returning to the people, the power of conveying information to a populace starved for new ideas from outside the box of big business commercialism. - Phil Donahue
