Brewtown Politico

Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Video is now available from the forum on Media Bias and the Future of Freedom of the Press organized by Rep. John Conyers (D-MI).

Some of the more insightful testimony came from BBC correspondent Justin Webb. He explained that while covering American politics, he has noticed the media too often defers to government officials and politicians. By contrast, he says, the British media are much more aggressive in questioning the country's leaders and seeking answers.

The video of his opening statement is here. It's in Quicktime and a little flaky, but you can still hear the audio even if the video doesn't show up.
