Hear from Victor Pickard as he discusses his book, America’s Battle for Media Democracy. Drawing from his extensive archival research, the book uncovers the American media system’s historical roots and normative foundations. It charts the rise and fall of a forgotten media reform movement to recover alternatives and paths not taken. As much about the present and future as it is about the past, Pickard proposes policies for remaking media based on democratic values for the digital age.
