Robert McChesney and non-profit media

This post is a collection of quotes from professor Robert McChesney about noncommercial media. There are 2 quotes listed below.


1. "Now, the one thing that's clear is that we need non-profit, noncommercial media - more than ever in the United States. We don't need a purely nonprofit, non-commercial system, but we need a significant non-profit, non-commercial system. Advertising-run media, profit-driven media, simply is not acceptable as the entirety of our media system." (The Problem of the Media, Interview with Anthony Ha, Mother Jones, 2004)


2. "The democratization of the internet is integrally related to the democratization of the political economy. They rise and fall together." (Digital Disconnect, 2013)
