suppresses embarrassing information about those who own the country

The mass media has been almost entirely missing in action on the story of why the U.S. Postal Service is being destroyed and who is profiting from the selloff of its PUBLIC property by CBRE, a company controlled and chaired by Senator Feinstein’s billionaire husband, Richard C. Blum.  This dereliction of duty is in keeping with the traditional power of the press to define who are the city’s — and the nation’s —“best people.”  Except now it’s worse.

Gray Brechin and a panel of journalists will discuss what has happened to investigative journalism as the mass media has become increasingly corporatized, commercialized, and monopolized.

Panel: Gray Brechin, UC Berkeley geographer
Richard Brenneman, formerly at the Berkeley Daily Planet and many other newspapers
Savanah Blackwell, journalist formerly with the Bay Guardian
George Wooding, publisher of Westside Observer
Peter Byrne, journalist
