National Conference For Media Reform

The 2013 National Conference for Media Reform is over! Free Press would like to thank all the conference-goers and presenters who gathered in Denver to fight for better media.

We tweeted, streamed, blogged and snapped pics throughout our amazing three-day event, so take some time to check out our conference coverage. You can visit the full archive of video and audio recordings here. And you can download a copy of our report here.

If you’re like me, you stayed up until the wee hours at our rocking Shake Your Media Maker Dance Party. (New definition for awesome: Hank Shocklee.) So maybe you’re feeling a little bleary-eyed this morning — but don’t even think about laying low. Grab a cup of joe, do 100 jumping jacks, shower in arctic water … do what it takes to perk yourself up for the many cool offerings we have lined up for you!
