Producer/Host: Jim Campbell
Spring is busting out all over in nature – the same seems to be true in the digital world. Today, we look at three reports that have been published within the past month by organizations that are providing some of the investigative reporting that our very financially stressed traditional media is hard pressed to provide today as often or as deeply as in the past. These other organizations are providing us with valuable information we might not otherwise have.
Here are links to the reports mentioned today:
About the host:
Jim Campbell has a longstanding interest in the intersection of digital technology, law, and public policy and how they affect our daily lives in our increasingly digital world. He has banged around non-commercial radio for decades and, in the little known facts department (that should probably stay that way), he was one of the readers voicing Richard Nixon’s words when NPR broadcast the entire transcript of the Watergate tapes. Like several other current WERU volunteers, he was at the station’s sign-on party on May 1, 1988 and has been a volunteer ever since doing an early stint as a Morning Maine host, and later producing WERU program series including Northern Lights, Conversations on Science and Society, Sound Portrait of the Artist, Selections from the Camden Conference, others that will probably come to him after this is is posted, and, of course, Notes from the Electronic Cottage.
