Comments by Steve Fesenmaier:

"I just watched Sandy's latest one hour media program, done with
Tom Ealand,another great librarian who teaches alternative media courses

at
Metropolitan Community College, and Janet Bussey, chairwoman
head of the MinnesotaGreen Party and Mary Shepard, the local FAIR
activist.

Sandy was the moderator for this episode, and he did a fantastic job,
introducing the discussion with three very important quotes,
and having lots of alternative media to discuss with the panelists.

Sandy discussed the total lack of coverage of all the civilian
causalities
in Afghanistan, Ealand talked about the popularity of his courses at Met

which is the only college in Minnesota that requires a research methods
course,
Mary talked about the trap of using labels like liberal, and Bussey
discussed
the exclusion of Ralph Nadar totally from the debates during the
presidental
campaign.

It was really great to see two librarians, who are usually totally
excluded
from the political media, show their great intelligence about current
politics,
and HOW LIBRARIES CAN BE A KEY SOURCE FOR ALTERNATIVE MEDIA
vs. the handful of mega-corps who control all of the mainstream press.
Like Mary points out, the media writers, etc. may be not so right-wing,
but
the editors and owners certainly are....especially about things
like the War.
