Submission + - Bill Moyers on Net Neutrality and Media Reform

Sandburger writes: Bill Moyers gave an inspired and inspiring opening speech at the National Conference for Media Reform this past weekend. After discussing the "plantation mentality" that keeps moneyed media in charge of political thought and debate, he warns of the threat to freedom and democracy posed by corporate interests determined to exploit the internet.
