Sue Wilson: People in Portland are now organizing against Clear Channel to bring the progressive point of view back to the airwaves they own.
Sue Wilson tells important stories which move politicians to act. The Emmy winning director of the media reform documentary "Broadcast Blues" and editor of SueWilsonReports.com, Wilson was 1987's California State University Long Beach “Outstanding Graduate” in Radio/TV/Film.
In the early '90's, she won Emmys for specials she produced for Jim Lampley, Bree Walker, Sylvia Lopez and others at KCBS-TV in Los Angeles, and then turned the spotlight on wasteful government spending for Sacramento Fox TV station KTXL, where her Emmy winning stories changed national, state, and local spending policies. In 1998 , Wilson broke national TV news of pharmaceuticals appearing in drinking water, which forced the US EPA to begin testing. Her AP, RTNDA, and PRNDI award winning radio show "Healing Healthcare" at Sacramento NPR station KXJZ in the early 2000's helped put more nurses on the job in California.
Broadcast Blues sets its sights on media policy, and www.SueWilsonReports.com turns a critical eye on the media itself.
Ronald Patterson: My friends and I were fascinated with players, hustlers, gamblers, dealers, and gangsters because they played by their own rules, despite the law. Ignorantly, we admired and emulated them and would eventually turn into monsters who killed people and destroyed our community.
Brent Budowsky: Many “journalists” treat Trump’s repeated verbal abuses against women as the charming idiosyncrasies of a celebrity, while Megyn Kelly treated them, correctly, as an appropriate question to ask a man seeking the presidency.
Robert Reich: California’s property taxes are already much lower than the national average. So even if corporations pay their full share, they’re still getting a great deal.
