Host Leif Utne checks in with leading media reformers Josh Silver and Jeff Chester for a report from the front lines of the struggle for media democracy and Internet freedom. They explain what’s happening with federal media ownership rules, why the growth of Google may not be such a good thing, and the campaign to free the iPhone.
