WASHINGTON -- On June 6-8, several thousand activists, journalists, scholars, policymakers and concerned citizens from across the country will gather at the Minneapolis Convention Center for the 2008 National Conference for Media Reform, hosted by Free Press. Now in its fourth installment, this unique event is the largest gathering of media reform advocates in the country.

"This is a critical year for our country -- and the future of our media," said Josh Silver, executive director of Free Press, the national, nonpartisan media reform group that organizes the conference. "There's a growing movement for better media in America that wants more quality journalism, a diversity of voices on the public airwaves, and a free and open Internet. After years of fighting to prevent a bad system from getting worse, the National Conference for Media Reform will focus on advancing bold visions for the future of the media and finding concrete solutions to get us there."
