An Interview with Free Press Founder Bob McChesney

An Interview with Bob McChesney of Free Press (strong supporters of Internet regulation). And yes — these are real quotes from Bob McChesney himself.

Sources:

“Only government can implement policies and subsidies to provide an institutional framework for quality journalism.”

Yep, He really said that: http://www.thenation.com/doc/20090406/nichols_mcchesney/

“Any serious effort to reform the media system would have to be part of a revolutionary program to overthrow the capitalist system itself.”

Yep… He said that too: http://www.monthlyreview.org/080915mcchesney.php

“There is no real answer but to remove brick by brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles.

“Advertising is the voice of capital. We need to do whatever we can to limit capitalist propaganda, and perhaps even eliminate it.”

“We’re for media reform that gets rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and divests them from control.

Yep… http://www.socialistproject.ca/bullet/246.php

“It’s the most important marxist publication in the world, let alone the United States.”

And Bob was its editor: http://newsbusters.org/blogs/seton-motley/2009/11/02/leftist-media-reform-outfit-free-press-their-marxist-co-founder-robert

“Exactly. And media reform will only cost the taxpayers sixty billion dollars in new subsidies…. That’s chicken feed.”
