 "Traditional media is a shadow of what it was a decade ago," said Tammy Baldwin, in a recent conversation with The Nation and On The Earth Productions. In this week’s installment of Creating a Progressive America, the Democratic Congresswoman from Wisconsin argues that the Citizens United ruling and the rise of corporate media have made it increasingly difficult to discern whose agenda is being promoted in the mainstream news—and urges her constituents to retake control through new media technology. "It is our time to seize this moment to fight back."

This segment is part of a new video series produced by The Nation and On the Earth Productions featuring progressive thinkers and leaders such as Sen. Bernie Sanders, Jim Hightower and Cornel West. Watch the series introduction and check back each Wednesday for a new video in the series.
