Press conference in support of pubcasting set for Tuesday on Cap Hill
A "Press Conference to Defend, Not Defund, Public Media" kicks off at 1 p.m. Tuesday (March 15) on Capitol Hill, sponsored by Free Press, "to shine a spotlight on the negative impact that cuts to federal funding for public broadcasting would have on local jobs, local journalism and local communities," it says. Speakers include Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), NABET-CWA President Jim Joyce, AFTRA President Roberta Reardon, and Craig Aaron of the Free Press Action Fund. MoveOn.org, CREDO Action and Free Press Action Fund will deliver 1 million signatures they collected defending pubcasting from funding cuts.
