Podcast: Civic information media
Craig Aaron is the Co-CEO of Free Press and Free Press Action. Aaron joins this episode to discuss the civic information bill in New Jersey and the promise of centering civic information in the media.
A vibrant multiracial democracy requires civic information media, which delivers the information that helps us live better lives in our communities. Journalism or civic media are a public good, and the public needs to invest in media along those lines. In New Jersey, bipartisan legislative support led to the civic information bill and the founding of the Civic Information Consortium.
