Brian Hansbury, part of the leadership team at The Media and Democracy Project, joins Deepak Puri, CEO of The Democracy Labs, to shine a light on the role of local journalists in maintaining a strong democracy. Advocating for public policy solutions that benefit local communities and support diverse opinions, this group is surgically raising awareness about the consequences of lies from broadcasters and offering ways for citizens to have their voices heard.

Deepak and Brian talk about:

  • How citizens can take on sources of disinformation and those normalizing bad actors
  • Role of the FCC in restricting misconduct and news distortion by companies with a broadcast license like FOX Corporation 
  • News and information is a public good and needs to be supported because a common set of facts is necessary to solve problems
