Documentary by Amy Goodman, and panel discussion with Ken Squier, David Goodman, Fran Stoddard, Thom Hartmann, and John Barkhausen.

After sold out showings during January’s Mountain Top film festival in Waitsfield, Green Mountain Global Forum (GMGF), in partnership with Action Coalition for Media Education (ACME), offer another chance to view Democracy Now’s film “Independent Media in a Time of War” with Amy Goodman on Tuesday, March 16 at 7:30 pm at the Eclipse Theater in Waitsfield.

Part scathing critique, part call to action, this hard-hitting documentary makes a compelling argument that the commercial news media have failed to represent the "true face of war." The half-hour film will be followed by discussion with media representatives including: David Goodman, author and journalist; Ken Squire, owner of WDEV radio station; John Barkhausen, talk show host on WDGR; and Fran Stoddard, producer/host of the weekly Vermont Public Television series, Profile. Thom Hartmann, award winning author and nationally syndicated talk show host, will moderate the discussion.

This is a unique opportunity to hear the perspectives of a distinguished cast of media representatives.
