Fighting for the Future of the Internet with Leticia Miranda

To hear the entire show, CLICK HERE. My guest Nov. 10 on No Country For Young Men was Leticia Miranda of Media Literacy Project. She is organizing around a dramatic public hearing on the Future of the Internet at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque on Nov. 16. The event will feature FCC commissioner Michael Copps and hundreds of locals will be offered a chance to testify about their support for (or, in theory, opposition to) Open Internet principles.

"They don't do anything for us," Violet Nicola said to him, referring to aid groups. "We never see them." The playlist is available HERE.
