Why Independent Media Matters

Winners of Izzy Award 2019. L to R: Zoe Loftus-Farren, Maureen Nandini Mitra, (Raza Rumi Dir. PCIM), Monica Mohapatra, Laura

The Park Center for Independent Media is dedicated to promoting media produced outside corporate control and to inspire and train the next generation of independent journalists in the traditions of Izzy Stone and many others before him.

The oligarchs of today also control the media and its narratives in the U.S. and beyond. We are also witnessing a nefarious link between these oligarchs and the strongmen with fascist ideas rising to power everywhere. From Hungary to the Philippines and Turkey; and from India to Brazil.

Without informed public opinion here and elsewhere, the battle for saving the planet cannot be fought.
