Breaking News: The Collision Of Journalism And Consumerism In A Democracy (2009)

Media experts debate whether capitalism impedes the development of public media within a democracy. Using Ukraine's Orange Revolution as a launching point, this film explores how a free press works in concert with (and in contrast to) the consumerism of modern democracies - asking: What is a free press? What is a free market? And what does one have to do with the other? 

Featuring Walter Cronkite, Diane Rehm, Brent Bozell III, Yevhen Fedchenko, Tetyana Ledebeva, Terry Anderson, John Boland and Jeffrey Dvorkin.
