WNMU Update

On 15 May 2008 The WNMU Board of Regents met and in an unfortunate but unsurprising fit of pique & con- firmation of their inability to respond to citizens, staff or faculty, lashed out at Faculty Senate President Tom Gruska and other faculty members and members of the public.

Standing Up Against Hate Speech

NCMR / National Conference for Media Reform

at NCMR / National Conference for Media Reform

Radio Free Silver! was born among hate speech.  When it originated in 2004 on KNFT in Silver City, NM, it occupied a 1 hour slot followed by 3 hours of Rush Limbaugh, and backed up by 2 hours of Bill O'Reilly and Michael Savage.  These ultra right wing opportunists and "corporatists" continue to spew their venom incessantly and to greater reward as evidenced by Limbaugh's recent renegotiation for even more pieces of Silver.

In an environment of increasing media consolidation controlled by fewer and fewer - and bloodier and bloodier - hands, abusive language is the rule rather than the exception with the most broadly syndicated right wing talk radio programming.  But this lunatic fringe has penetrated further into mainstream media with the increasingly vituperative language heard among reactionary network pundits and epitomized by CNN's Lou Dobbs' rants on immigration - and the platform that he offers to those with racist and violent associations.

This panel brings together several experts to discuss the circumstances and available alternatives to this roiling cauldron of not only hate speech, but calls to action to unleash violence against those who are degraded and maligned for financial gain and political positioning via fear mongering.
