Overview

The independent media are arguably more important than ever today, as corporate media’s line reads increasingly like a government press release rather than a free society’s analysis of the day’s important events. But there’s a lot to sort through: Independent newsmagazines and newspapers, local cable-TV access, and independent and microtransmitted radio are everywhere, offering a vast array of news, opinions, and information. New Indymedia activists alone now have direct links to more than sixty-five grassroots news sites around the world. The challenge we are faced with is two-fold: We must make these news sources widely accessible, but we must also find ways to compile, sort, and collectively release this real news to millions of people—a project that this invaluable guide for diversifying your access to information can make much more achievable.
