Bill Moyer Addresses NCMR 2008

Legendary journalist Bill Moyers electrified an audience of more than 3,500 in Minneapolis this morning calling the media reform movement “the most significant citizens’ movement to emerge in this new century.”

“Inspired by Free Press, SavetheInternet.com, a bipartisan coalition, has become crucial to the fight to keep the World Wide Web a bastion of free speech,” Moyers said.”

Watch Moyers’ speech now:

“The fate of the cyber commons is up for grabs here,” he said. “We’ll lose that fight without you because the only antidote to the power of money in Washington is the power of organized people at the netroots.”
