There’s no other event like the NCMR. Besides being the country’s largest media reform conference, it’s one of the very few progressive conferences that truly manages to mesh the seriousness of policy sessions, the vitality of grassroots activism and performances by great artists into a coherent whole.

The fifth NCMR is taking place Friday and Saturday in Boston and you can watch the action at this live stream. Highlights include an 11:00am WikiLeaks panel Friday featuring The Nation‘s Greg Mitchell, Glenn Greenwald and Amy Goodman and a 2:00 panel on Saturday featuring Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel.
