In a time when the very concept of truth has become contested territory, the role of an independent media is more critical than ever. Community-based, non-profit, and independent media outlets abound. Norman Stockwell, publisher of the 111-year-old magazine “The Progressive” will look at different forms of independent journalism and discuss ways in which audiences can become better consumers of the news, and even participants in its creation.  

• Norman Stockwell is publisher of The Progressive. Previously, for over 20 years, he served as WORT Community Radio’s Operations Coordinator in Madison, WI. He also coordinated the Iraq Journal website in 2002-3. In 2011, he reported on protests in Madison for Iran’s Press TV and other outlets. His reports and interviews have appeared on Free Speech Radio News, Democracy Now!, and elsewhere. He is co-editor of the book REBEL REPORTING: John Ross Speaks to Independent Journalists.
