Al Sharpton On Media Ownership

This footage is from the "Democratic National Candidates Forum" organized by the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition that took place on June 22, 2003 at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers in Chicago, IL.

Here's the original question that was presented to the candidates (courtesy of Jesse Jackson).

Al Sharpton On Media Ownership (Small - 3 MB)

"I think that it is imperative that we protect the public's right to know, and if we have monopolies controlling the airwaves, we cannot have a democratic debate in this country.

It is, in my judgement, the most glaring contradiction to "free the airwaves" in Baghdad and then sell all the airwaves in America to private interest one, two or three." -- Al Sharpton.
