Meaningful Movies: Shadows of Liberty

  • The Well @Queen Anne UMC 1606 5th Avenue West Seattle, WA, 98119 United States

SHADOWS OF LIBERTY examines how the US media are controlled by a handful of corporations exercising extraordinary political, social, and economic power. Having always allowed broadcasting to be controlled by commercial interests, the loosening of media ownership regulations, that began under Reagan and continued under Clinton, has led to the current situation where five mega corporations control the vast majority of the media in the United States. These companies not only don’t prioritize investigative journalism, but can and do clamp down on it when their interests are threatened.

This movie is free and open to the public.
